WTF ......

Recommended Posts

Gotta love a trier🤣 That's an abomination, particularly the 'Halfords' carbon interior😳

Surely no one would pay over £10k for that or am I missing something? Do some on here think that looks good?

Another - although this nicely done I don't think its worth the 49k price tag

1. "styling package based around the Porsche Gemballa Mirage GT which was in turn based on the Porsche Carrera GT (please note this is a replica not the real thing)"  - just to be clear...

2. "20' twin spoke alloys with carbon ceramic brake look" - so it doesn't handle and doesn't stop

3. " if head turning is your thing then this is your kind of car" - my head is turning, quite rapidly, left to right and back again...

4. Tut tut, thread should be in 986 forum - even if the regulars want nothing to do with it  :D

The Martini 986 is pretty hideous. I love the Speedster coversions from a style point of view but the prices are ridiculous. AND i would put money on this particular one being the self same car i posted about, having seen it at the NEC recently, right down to the peeling aircon button!!! £74k for a 2006 car with a body kit and fancy upholstery? Don't think so! :sad01_anim:

As automotive art it's really nice APART FROM those glue-on humps.

I'm wondering whether it would have worked better with a 911, take the humps off and the proportions work better.

Or maybe that's just because it would look more like the original?

I like the styling tbh, underneath its a 98k mileage 986, and always will be. 29k - its 19k too much.

sure that Gembella monster has been doing the rounds for a good few months now - although not sure it had martini stripes on it last time I saw it.

This time they don't show the open frunk where the kit really doesn't fit at all well - although it is still missing a cigarette lighter! 

That interior is proper Halfords-carbontatstic isn't it 🤮

The price is absurd but it looks great.

Unfortunately though it's still just a Boxster no matter how hard it tries.

The interior. Were you to sit in that you would expect a bosomy madame to ask you to choose a girl for the next hour. (Or 0.32 seconds if @John K}

More pictures are further down the listing.

The carbon film and carbon style dipping is shocking - the whole fit and finish is shocking and that's before you add personal taste to the concept (NO I think it's ugly)

I'd also be very concerned with most of these styling projects as all the air intakes seem very much reduced.

And if all the above is not enough I'd say there is a colour match issue with the front moulding verses the bonnet and wings. Not acceptable at that price on any car, says the guy who has that issue on his own car, but I didn't even pay £5k.

Still the lister is going to have a nice bump in views from followers of this thread, but that my make him think it is worth £29k....

I quite like a solid 80% of that.

Might be worth a good 8-10k on a good day ... :)

I was looking at this in a kit car magazine, you give them £65k and a 987 and they hand you back this, agree the humps are OTT but the rest does look good (in the pictures)

So, this or a 718 Spyder. 

Hmm, that’s a tough one.

Questionable taste and prices all round. I do see the appeal, but I'd much rather take that kind of money and spend £30k on a 997 or £70k on a 964 and have the real deal.
