    Re: Real or Replica?

    AFAIK its streetlegal in most countries

    Re: Real or Replica?

    I like every aspect of this car's exterior design EXCEPT (1) the shape of the front boot lid is too 'angular', (2) the headlamps are awful, and (3) the shape of the front apron air intake doesn't work for me. Other than that, it's design genius that may never date. BUT I suppose the 3 complaints I have are so small they are rather like saying that Penelope Cruz has a little scar on her ankle.

    Re: Real or Replica?

    GT1 is indeed road legal in the US.
    Here a GT1 in florida.

    Re: Real or Replica?

    .

    Re: Real or Replica?

    Thanks for the pics! Wow the side of the car must get stone chips like mad with the front wheel so far out of the arch!

    hehehehehehe

    I actually just copy-pasted the whole enhilada from some homepage.
    I was wondering how long it took before someone would notice.

    So your saying you actually like this car?!!
    Everyone is entitled to their opinion but come on...!
    It looks like it a Stretch-Mr2 covered in glue and then dropped into the porsche parts-bin in the hope that the abomnation that comes out looks liking like an MC12..

    It has nothing of the continuity and beauty of a Carrera Gt or even say a Lamborgini Muria...now there is a car.. easy; go hang your head in shame...

    Re: Real or Replica?

    Did I say that it looks like a vile abomnation? The whole car looks like some after-market cut and shut...rear spoiler is horrific...wheel arches don't fit..have you even seen the interior>?!

    Is it fair to assume you have a problem with this car ?

    LOL!!

    Re: Real or Replica?

    jamesaug, taste is totally subjective Yes, I like this car apart from the 3 little complaints I mentioned previously so I have nothing to be ashamed about.

    Re: Real or Replica?

    I saw this car in person back in 99 or 2000. It started life as 996 and the mods came after that. I think it was done in Atlanta, I saw it at Champion in Florida. Not the real thing. Champion was racing a GT1 at the time.

    there are five pics of the gt1 in this thread.
    are you referring to the first pic, or some other, or all?
    there have been 911's made to look like a gt1 but i don't believe that's the case w/ any of these pics.
    please point out which pic you are referring to and the differences.

    Re: Real or Replica?

    It is not "perfectly" styled, but I find it a very attractive car to my eye. Has a firm spot on my shortlist of most exciting looking cars.

    Re: Real or Replica?

    Who cares what it looks like, this car did it's job well on the track. It's a purpose built street legal homogolation of the Le Mans racer that in the end of it's life took 1st and 2nd at the 1998 Le Mans!!! Can you really complain about that...

    The best year was the '98 GT1.

    Re: Real or Replica?

    The mad italians!

    I must say it looks very neat from the front, and i'm sure it may confuse some people on the highway, that isn't a factory porsche?....... or is it...... .....

    Re: Real or Replica?

    here's my friend peter hardman in the car he raced for a while

    Re: Real or Replica?

    2

    Re: Real or Replica?

    lol..I guess this is a car that divides opinion then! To be honest the picture above with the 993 lights and the original spoiler actually looks ok...no 'runny egg' for me please!
