Porsche P/904 Carrera

The P/904 Carrera has been all over the internet of late, so there's a very good chance you've seen it already. But it's worth another look, right? And if you're not yet familiar, here's the story: it's the work of Gullwing America, designed to emulate the innovative, lightweight 904 endurance racers of the sixties. Its sumptuous curves are masterfully draped over the underpinnings of a second-gen Boxster, with the body being formed from a hybrid aluminium composite. Overall cost should be around £60,000 (although this doesn't include the donor Boxster - you'll have to provide that yourself) and, brilliantly, it's been designed with Germany's strict TÜV regulations in mind, so it'll be street-legal and safe too. What's not to like?
