From Inhabitat:

If you can afford to buy a Porsche (muttering curses at you under our breath), good for you. For the rest of us, why not follow one insanely skilled DIYer's lead and try to make your own? That's right, this golden beauty was actually made by the hands of a deft crafter out of PVC pipes, cardboard and duct tape, though it sure doesn't look like it. Even cooler, the Porsche look-alike runs on 100% pedal power.

Can't afford to buy a Porsche? Why not make your own? That's what one skilled sport car enthusiast did, and the result was this absolutely gorgeous golden replica of the coveted boxter. And don't think there's a heavy bloc V8 engine sitting underneath the hood - this shiny number runs completely on pedal power!
