Fake Carrera GT Is Still Too Nice For Teenage Drivers

Illustration for article titled Fake Carrera GT Is Still Too Nice For Teenage Drivers

What's better than handing the keys to your Porsche Carrera GT to your kid and having him destroy it? How about giving him this Chinese knockoff version he can wreck all day long at a fraction of the price? Brilliant! Though not cheap, with a 'buy it now' price of $80 grand, this Carrera actually started life as a Boxster, got put in the taffy puller and stretched 12 inches front and back, and then had a new body dropped on top. Keen eyes render it obvious as a poseur, but it's actually a pretty good fake. Better than most of the Fierarris we've seen, anyway.

DISCUSSION

The Boxster, while no match for the GT, is a far better looker. I don't see the point; the Carrera GT isn't exactly a household name, so it won't impress laymen, and people who know what a GT actually looks like will easily spot it as a knock-off.
