Carrera GT rebody kit replica car built on Boxster Euro

From angles, this looks nice or at least interesting. but overall, I'm not sure if I like it. What about you?

I admire the customization many have performed on their Boxsters. IMO, to copy a more expensive model of the same marque with a Boxster is not faithful to why I enjoy my Boxster. Frankly, it has a "poser" smell to it, at the very least it should have a beast engine and accompanying modifications, then it would be more like a home made RUF.

The Carrera Gt kit is all out of proportion, so it doesn't really "work".
I like this one though:

If the Carrera GT could have deformed offspring, it would look like this.

I don't like replicas in general, if you can't afford it then you can't, why get a fake?

$55k to get laughed at by everyone
Man, you can get a used Turbo or GT3 for that kind of money

Not my cup of tea but at least it looks like a fairly nice body kit with decent workmanship.

I have seen some real "stick on" with 3m tape junk kits before and they wouldnt
compare to this.

No scissor/Lambo doors... That's a dealbreaker for me!

ekam, I would because with that million dollars I'd go out and buy TWO of the real ones then offload the faker onto some other fool. "There's a fool born every minute."

... but in all fairness I wouldn't mind if the FRONT END of the next generation Boxster would look like this kit ...
