    Lightbulb a little non-GM action

    ok, so here's what i think the new FE porsche coupe should look like. it uses a turbo version of the carrera GT's V10, and competes directly with ferrari's 599. here it is:


    a 2-seat hatch, hope you like it.
    *the upper fascia looks like the cayman*(pretend it's there)
    comments/suggestions welcome

    I saw a lot more Ferrari then Porsche at first glance but it does have a Porsche feel to it, maybe as an inexpensive 4 banger entry level sports coupe.

    there's a rumor going around that porsche will most likely do a 928 revival on a modified panamera platform.

    You mean, a front-engined Porsche coupe? That would be revolutionary!

    Anyway, both Porsche and Ferrari and this type of cars do nothing for me, but your chopping skills are great!

    not so, porsche had like 10 FE models throughout the 80s and 90s. i don't know why everyone is mentioning ferrari, all the parts for this concept are from a porsche. thanks though.

    i'll put up another pic (GIF) showing how excactly the chop was done.

    as promised, i made a GIF, unfortunately it's too big for imageshack and it's too big for the gmi uploader. anyone know where i could upload a 2.62MB GIF file?

    . i know it's a bit hard to see the hood at first, but it's there. if you look right at the bottom of the windshield you can see it. it's the corvette's hood.
