This is a brilliant idea. What astonishes me even more is the fact that even the bicycle used in the design has disk brakes all round.

The fit, finish and the attention to detail is astonishing considering that it was a pretty much a home made product.

First time I've seen it, and it's a superb effort !! I really like the fact that it's properly built to scale, and with a level of fit and finish that I suspect might match some of the existing manufacturers... lol

Excellent attempt. But this has to get the award of the Porsche with the worst 0-100 timings lol. Looks pretty neat though.

Wow! Just wow!! I mean, managing to replicate all those curves, calculating the weight reduction and coming out with a 1:1 example of a Porsche is one helluva deal!

FerrariKSA, will you share the link where you got this one from?
I'm kinda curious about the materials used, the overall cost and time taken to finish this masterpiece!

I think Porsche ought to straight away gift the guy a 911 purely for the effort. They may not find a bigger fan than this guy for their 911.

This is a marvelous effort. Kudos to the guys who did this.

In one of the pictures above, there's a real Porsche headed the other direction from this one. And all the people on the street have their eyes on this Porsche.

How is it powered BTW?

High praise that this has actually been featured in the 5th episode of Top Gear Season 15. If I didn't know about this already, I would have been taken !!
