    Chris Pongpitaya/ Replica car build

    Hi,

    I know Chris very well, he is amazing great guy. This is the second car that he is making for me. The first car, My husband drove for 1 year when our friend from Belgium sae and drove, he love it. So, now my first car is his baby. This one is the second car from Chris. Unfortunately, we won't have a chance to drive it, my husband need to move back to USA because of his mother health condition, she was 92 years old. The car will be finished in 3 months. In the meanwhile, you will have a choice of your car color. The finished PORCHE will sell for the price of 900,000 Bath, not bad for getting PORCHE with Subaru engine.
    Hope you will enjoy the ride of this luxury car....
    The car style is Porche 356 speedster PGO adaptation come with the original Porche wheel, and Subaru legacy 185hp, 2200cc engine......as below picture.....
    Here is the car will look like when finished ... Chris will put the logo of Porche for you
