Vintech P550 Tribute
The Porsche 550 is an icon in it's own right...and may just be the most sought after Porsche in the world, and for that matter, one of the most sought after cars period. However, if you're not in the class of people that can drop 3.5 - 4 million dollars on a car that doesn't even have a trunk, or you don't have a lifetime to wait for one to actually cross the auction block, then you have to salivate over pictures like the rest of us hopeless dreamers. The people a Vintech have seen a niche, in that people may actually pay good money for a modern interpretation, née tribute, to the Porsche 550. What we know for sure is very little, other than a carbon fibre body, a 3.0 litter boxer engine, 5 speed manual transmission, and being super light at 1200 pounds. There are only really two things we know for certain, the first being that it may be cheaper than the real thing, but it definitely won't be cheap, and...that it is absolutely, positively, without a doubt, drop....dead...gorgeous. We may never own it, but we'd sure settle for a ride. More pics available here.
