OMG Porsche 928 Pickup?

Perfect for picking up sheetrock, what's next? A Boxster plane

That's crazy. Can you say El Camino! Or in this case, El Porchemino!

That is CRAZY!!!
I don't really see the point of the third axle, but it is definitely cool. Maybe Porsche should start making them.

Almost looks like the car Rommel used to cruise in France.

so much work, for so much ugly. I give him props for doing his own thing though.

Last I heard, my friend's dad has his 928 parked in a barn on his farm. Maybe he should consider converting it like that. But it reminds me more of an El Camino than a pickup. Need a mullet to drive that thing.

Speaking of El Camino, saw one on TLC last night where Barry White (not the singer) bought a crappy one for 1K and spent close to 43K rebuilding it. He ended up selling it at an auction for over 60K. It was pretty sweet! But, I think I would rather be driving the 928 6 wheel GTS pickup conversion before I drove his car.

I think I'll pass on a $60K El Camino.

I did however rear-end an El Camino back when I was in college and had a 944. I was freaking out thinking I would soooo get sued, and the guy got out and was cool as hell. And yes, he did have a mullet.

I love El Caminos, there are what they are.

This 928 owner should be slapped around a bit.

I would never drive it around, but I have to hand it to the builder. He's created something very unique. He also did a good job, too. It doesn't look like some of those Frankenstein's monster creations we see on the internet.

Actually thats not so crazy. Experimental aircraft have been using Porsche air cooled motors for a long time. Good power /weight ratio.

Maybe not a Carrera boat, but it's freakin awesome. Porsche designed, although it has a Viper engine. I bet my 20ft Crownline could take it.
