It's alive! ALIVE!!

I'm pretty sure this is Dr. Frankenstein's car. It's made of parts from a dead Lambo, Carrera Gt, Boxster and 911. I hope the owner isn't in the lower left hand corner of the first pic, that car doesn't really fit him.

Looking at the front end, the words "gaping maw" come to mind...looks like it would swallow small animals.

I concur. I love it except as noted above. Of course I'm biased though as I have the same side skirts, rear bumper, and tail lights (except clear). Hate the lambo doors, but I could definitely live with the rest.

I like it. I'm not a fan of the Lambo doors. Those should stay on Italian cars. As for the front end, well it's the new twin turbo style front end originally made by TechArt. It's been copied by a few others. I can live with it but I prefer the 997 GT-3 front end for a facelift. Here is the image of the car that front end was made for and how it looks.

that car looks sweeeeet (well other than the bench on the trunk and possibly the doors, but those doors can open both ways so i guess its no problem).

i really really do like it, its done tastefully if u ask me, well other than the doors

I think if the pictures where shot at better angles the car would look better. The shots are just not well done.
Is a Gembella Boxster with Lambo doors. Personally Lambo doors belong on Lambos for a reason. If he did not have the silly doors this car would be hot. Too in

He's from West Lafayette, Ind. A Purdue Univ engineer with too much time on his hands, my guess.

Minus the doors, aftermarket taillights I think its cool. I really am a fan of the Gembella rear facelift. I could do without the gaping front end, maybe just stick with a 996 GT3 front, or possibly the 997 GT3 style front.
