Poor Man’s 911: Full Size Pedal-Powered Porsche Model

Its safe to say that few of us could afford the $150,000+ price tag of a Porsche 911 GT3 RS—but equally this would inspire yet fewer into actually fashioning one ourselves. Remarkably a group of absolutely fanatical, and tremendously handy, Porsche lovers (as yet unnamed) have been determined enough to do just that, to quite jaw-dropping results. Using a toy model for reference, these nuts crafted the bodywork of balsa and tape around a custom-made steel bike frame—giving their masterpiece a rendering of gold foil before taking it out for a spin. Who’d have thought a sports car could be so low-emission! Incredible.
