the article says the car was made for the Sultain of Brunei.. or however you spell it.

isn't he the guy that has tons of women (aka "mistresses") living in his palace at all times.. must be a rough life. endless supply of hotties, custom Ferraris...

I'm sure he is not *truly* happy.....

Yeah .. didn't say I don't want his money, palaces, cars, or ladies.

Just think that one in particular is particularly ugly.

There was the Porsche 944 station wagon. Even a 928 pickup. Then a SUV. And soon a sedan.

That's not a station wagon, it's a shooting brake.

Garage
Somewhere floating around are shots of Porsche's own prototype 4 door 928's. They're pretty ugly, too.
Actually, I think the Ferrari wagon isn't too bad...the lines are reasonably clean. It doesn't have that "ADHD kid assembling 4 model cars at once" look.

It'll piss all the poor people off.

thank god i m too young to remember the porsche pick up truck .. lol

i guess i m just not seeing WHY someone would want to get that instead of a maybach or a phantom. looking at the picture, its not like he's driving it himself .. so why spend so much $$ customizing a car that looks like a subaru / lotus and isnt as comfy as a phantom or as fast as a real ferrari ?

i guess the obvious answer is .. because he can afford it .. it sure does piss poorer folks (me) off

The rear of it looks like an old Honda Accord station wagon. I do like the post above me though.

But, as LB put it, if I had multiple hoes id def. buy me one of those!

What is, what you get when a Pacer mates with a Ferrari.

iirc neither of those two estates were "sanctioned" by Ferrari, they were both converted by custom coach builders..

"Absolute proof that money doesnt buy taste .. or common sense"

- I believe the money/taste equation was thoroughly disproven by Roseanne Barr several years ago.
