Extremely Fake Porsche Carrera GT Might Give You A Laugh Or Two

Let’s say you’ve never seen a real Porsche Carrera GT in your life. Would that in turn lead you to think something like this Fiero-based replica was the real deal? We’d like to think that it wouldn’t, unless it only caught your eye from a (great) distance.

The vehicle is currently up for sale on eBay in the UK, and the seller wants £12,995 (equal to $16,770) for it. The ad also states that full specs for the car are unknown and that it has spent most of its time in a garage.

Speaking of specs, we can tell you straight away that this car does not have a V12, despite the badging. For one, such an engine would have (probably) cost more than the body kit, and second, the real Carrera GT doesn’t come with twelve cylinders anyway.

What the actual Carrera GT does have, in reality, is a 5.7-liter mid-mounted V10, producing 612 PS (603 HP) and 590 Nm (435 lb-ft) of torque, with the help of a 6-speed manual transmission and a “troublesome” clutch.

If anything, the least the builder could have done was get the number of cylinders right…

Where are the goods?

Porsche gave the original Carrera GT a pretty luxurious cabin, with excellent materials throughout and proper everyday convenience features such as air conditioning, cruise control, power windows, a premium audio system and so on.

This replica, on the other hand, kind of falls short on the features list. Way short. Frankly, the upper dashboard looks ridiculous, and that massive ‘Carrera’ lettering could probably be used as a lethal weapon.

By the way, this car claims to be Carrera GT RS, if you look at the rear end, a version that never existed in real life.

    Man, this car reminds me of the worst overcast cloudy day when it’s raining and you have to do some activity outside…Just a mess. Oh ok…Carrera GT RS… 😂

    Carrera + Toyota = Carreta, Toyyera, Cayota.

      That was my thought too, but if the interior doors are from the donor car then I don’t think its from any gen mr2. Same with the frunk, the setup doesn’t match that of any gen mr2. I’m curious as to what the donor car is

        Clearly states it was a Pontiac Fiero

      I thought originally that it was either an older Camaro (pre-2007) or some old (pre-2013/2014) corvette that had been modified.

      I never understood why people do this to cars that actually have some value. Because from the look of things, the seats, screws, metal work, etc, that this cost a lot to actually do. Why not instead buy a much better and much nicer vehicle opposed to this?

    IMO, it’s not a bad looking car on the outside but it is the worst Carrera GT replica I’ve ever laid eyes on.

    Carbage!

    I suppose it’s no worse than a Genesis or Lexus ES masquerading as a luxury car. 😉

  • Six_Tymes

    why are those wheels on the ground and not on the car?

  • Bash

    Weirdo and the proportions are wrong.

  • Mr. EP9

    Anyone who pays even half of what they are asking for the POS is an idiot of the highest caliber. This thing deserves to be in a crusher. I’d take an ugly af Fiero over this and restore it. It’ll probably look better than this cheap hack job.

    The only thing this shares with a Carrera GT is that its a dangerous car to drive. The GT because, well it’s a race car. This Fierro, well because it is a rolling pile of garbage that looks as though it will drop parts as you drive down the road…

  • Loquacious Borborygmus

    That looks grate.

  • f1300

    It’s absolutely impressive – how many Fieros still are out there waiting to be crippled…!

    If I had a few drinks and this guy told me let’s take a ride in Carrera GT, it would have fooled me enough to pull down my panties. Mission Accomplished sir. Well done.

      Oh, mama… I might take you up on that one some day.

      Everyone: I need a RollsRoyce-kit fit for a ’99 Corolla rather quickly… any offers?

  • Stephen G

    Does it make sense to make a cheap ugly slow version of an expensive ugly fast car?

  • tkindred

    I often wonder who makes these kits? Do they really think enough people will buy them to make it worthwhile?
