At some point in his life, every man dreams of owning a beautiful, expensive sports car. They're fast, flashy, and drop panties like its their job. But there is one problem: it's very unlikely that you have $300,000 to $400,000 grand to blow on a new Lambo or Ferrari. Well, the guys over at Wired Magazine have found someone that might be able to help you. Chris Pongpitaya, a former Porsche parts supplier in Germany, and his crew pump out fake super cars from their Thai garage just outside of Bangkok. They look exactly like the real things.
Using old chassis, handmade foam, and fiberglass infused with kevlar and carbon for the bodywork — as well as, yes, lower-grade engines (usually Toyota or Subaru) — they are able to create Porsches, Maseratis, Ferraris, and other supercars for half the price. For example, they use old chassis from Toyota MR2s to make Lambourghinis and Opel Carreras to make Aston Martins. Now don't get me wrong, these cars will still cost you a pretty penny — around $130,000 for a Lambo — and they're definitely not going to preform the same on the track. However, if you're the kind of guy who's willing to skimp in order to impress others, maybe you should give Pongpitaya a call. The car will still make girls swoon and should get you laid but make sure they don't ask you to see that 6-liter V-12 that's supposed to be under the hood.
