The Heynsdyk 2500SF: A Mercedes-Inspired Porsche 944 Re-SkinS

It's hard to find an angle on the Dutch-built Heynsdyk 2500SF that isn't inspired by, or completely ripped off of, another car. If there's one it's the front, which is an aesthetic challenge. But hey, Porsche 944 guts, right?

The Heynsdyk 2500SF is built on the Porsche 944, not exactly the brand's most respected offering, but it's at least galvanized so it's both rust-proof and heavy. Atop that car's chassis rests a, ahem, uniquely styled new open-top body that borrows styling from the Mercedes-Benz W196, the Porsche Carrera GT and Mr. Snuffleupagus. The car can be purchased piecemeal or as a finished unit with up to 250HP when a turbo gets slapped on. 0-60 MPH comes in six seconds, which is convenient since you'll have to outrun the ugly.
