Here's a nice Ferrari 308 GTSi selling on eBay with a suspiciously low bid. Why? Oh, it's got a Pontiac Fiero engine. We present to you the world's first reverse Fauxrarri.
Here's our entire internal dialog while reading this eBay listing about a clean 1981 Ferrari 308 GTSi:
Hey, nice example. I always like the 308s, even though they wear the stink of the 80's like a cheap perfume, they do wear it well. Man, this one's sporting some heinous MOMO wheels, but those are an easy swap for something lighter or more factory. Boy oh boy, this thing is clean! Not even a crack in the tail lights, and only one bid at $12,999!
No self, NO, you do not need a Ferrari, even if it's a clean example There's gotta be something atrocious going on in the interior... hmm, everything seems to be up to snuff — actually this thing's clean as a whistle, the leather isn't even cracked or dry. It looks like it might even have the documentation in the passengers seat. Urge to bid... rising.
Wait a minute, this might be some chump trying to pass off a really well done Pontiac Fiero kit-car Fauxrarri as the real McCoy, we see those on Jalopnik all the time. Wonder if there are any number plates to authenticate it. Oh hey, there they are, both the door jamb plate and the Pininfarina sticker. Wow, how do I tell my significant other I've bought another car and this one will be broken more than it's on the road and cost more to maintain than my mortgage?
