    NOT ORIGINAL
    Looks like a updated version of the Porsche 917 or Laser 917 Kit Car (more rounded) IMHO

    your right about it looking like a reworked Manta, but not the Montage as pictured above...it's more like a smoothed Mirage, even has the vents at the back side quarters the same or darn close. Heck, after looking at the two closer, I'm betting my money on exactly that, a rework of a Mirage...the same details are on both, the Mirage has been around since 1974

    Looks great to me! Even if it is an update it appears well executed. +1 for original design and positive threads

    I think the car is out of proportion and looks goofy. Maybe you could make a batmobile out of it.

    by original i meant it isnt a direct copy of an existing car. this was hardly the response i was expecting considering the the thread requesting new positive content and builds.

    it was scanned,carved from foam and then molds were made. the people who designed it are street rod guys and i feel this shows in the design. it is obviously influenced by the manta cars and old school race cars as well so it isnt meant to be a modern looking sports car.
    i have more info and pics but it seems i should just let this thread die before it turns into a negativity free for all.
    glad i didnt invite these guys to join the forum and sorry for sharing.
