Now this is a looker

I'd like to just drive one someday-- but alas, I'm not sure how even that would ever happen.

My, oh my.

I think the world is ready for a 917 replica, with some Polo-style tinkering to Siamese 2 6-cyl 911 engines together. A legit air-cooled flat 12 in a glass long-tail-- mmmmm, mmmm good.

Where's Chuck Beck when you need him?

Working on the coupe, I hope!

i can’t tell for sure, but something about the 550 picture looks CG to me.  Nice looking, but I’m not convinced it’s real.  Then again, I’m looking at it on my iPhone.

Check the Vintech Blog link. And also check here for a fiberglass one in Taiwan. http://www.extremekitcars.com/porsche-550-gullwing/

Hmmm...  The real ones are somewhat less attractive to me than the CG ones and the panel gaps are all over the place.  Still, kudos for making something interesting.

I disagree. I looked at every photo in the Vintech blogpost and that car is exquisite. The fiberglass one in Taiwan may be all over the place but that Vintech 550 is sweet. And it has a 3L engine so I imagine it does fly.
