Teen Turns Cell Phone Into Porsche Using Craigslist

Steve Ortiz, 17, has accomplished the high-tech equivalent of turning straw into gold: using Craigslist, the teen successfully turned a cell phone into a 2000 Porsche Boxster S.

Over the course of 14 trades during a two-year period, Ortiz traded his way up from a phone to an iPod Touch, which he exchanged for a dirt bike, then another. He then swapped that for a Macbook Pro, then got his hands on a Toyota4runner--finally working his way up to a Porsche.

Check out his story in the video below, which includes some tips on other bartering websites, then check out the craziest Craigslist posts ever.
