Poor Man’s Porsche 911 GT3 RS

June 2, 2010 by Ted98 Comments

The 2010 Porsche 911 GT3 RS, basically a race car gone street legal, could be bit hard to get your hands on, with the $150,000 price tag and all. But when you really want one and you find yourself with too much time and colored paper on your hands, you can apply a little bit of them home engineering skills and build your own almost functional model. It may look like it’s made of pancake dough and it certainly doesn’t drive very well on a rainy day, but it’ll still get some ladies to turn their heads and check it out, mostly because they’re easy to fool.

    That’s a really neat idea! How fast does it go?

  2. Jerggins says:

    Thats a pretty sick ride. Score one for the little guy. Hows it powered though. Pedals?

  3. redcard says:

    Genius!

    Beyond cool!

    Try giving a link or even credit to the original site?

    Wow, someone buy this guy a beer

  7. jdavidlove says:

    This is so very sad. Some of these things should not be chronicled or remembered. Pitiful is not a strong enough word to do some of these stories justice. Something has gone very, very wrong.

  8. Mstel says:

    soo the stearing wheel is bicycle handle bars?? is this just a glorified bike???

  9. D.C says:

    Fantastic!. Can’t believe how much effort you put into this project. lol
    You have some balls for actually taking it onto the roads for real too.
    Great stuff.

  10. TechDubDoob says:

    What a boss.

  11. Paul says:

    Being so clever he’ll own the real thing in no time,
    the best thing I’ve seen in ages, well done.

  12. Andrew says:

    Whoever wrote this article needs to learn to do a little research. They mention the 2010 GT3RS, but the one in the photo, and the model the guy is basing his design off of, is a 2008 model.

  13. Jay says:

    The gold exterior seems a bit excessive…
    If it were a more plausible color, that would earn some mad respect.

  14. Prin says:

    He has thousands and thousands of people all over the world looking has his creation, how is that a waste of time? When was the last time you did anything that more then a dozen people looked at? It’s called a hobby. He doesn’t just sit around at home and jerk off to porn and watch tv all day.

  15. Yeri says:

    I actually have more respect for this guy than the idiots that buy boxters/ caymanns.

    At least his LOOKS like a 911.

  16. movie downloads says:

    That’s like saying the guy who discovered the cure for Smallpox is lame because someone else found the cure for Polio.

    Both projects required a tremendous amount of hard work and ingenuity, and are likely much more significant than anything you’ve built.

  17. shawnlxc says:

    Why don’t you give credit in the post where you ripped these off from?

    It’s a bitch ass move to just through others work up without giving them credit:

    @Shawn : Fixed, I didn’t know the original page, i even tried tracking it by the license plate and no luck. They came to us via a Russian friend of mine.

    I think he is very creative person.. I like this…

  21. jeffers says:

    Fun! How creative is that? Mimicing is the highest form of flattery.
    I say; Nay to the nay-sayers. Get life nay-sayers!
    This would fit in with the creative talents of the artists of
    Burning Man.
    Now, where can I get one of these….hum,
    get some toothpicks…I am making a F-17 stealth bomber.

  22. blocked you says:

    That stupid slider thing blocked all the pictures and most of the text, If you are that hard up for recognition and freinds go to a bar and buy a whore.

  23. Mary Fisher says:

    Brilliant! Want one – but too idle (and no space) to build one. If my husband saw this he’d do it though.

    Let the gainsayers go off to lead their sad little lives, this is real!

  24. dante breackham says:

  35. I have been previously browsing on-line over Three hours currently, having said that i hardly ever discovered almost any amazing write-up for instance the one you have. It is lovely well worth ample in my opinion. In my view, if perhaps just about all web owners and also bloggers made excellent articles just like you do, the net will certainly be a much bigger beneficial than previously.

  36. I all the time used to read article in news papers but
    now as I am a user of web so from now I am using
    net for articles or reviews, thanks to web.
