      If this is real..it would be the rarest. 1 of 15 Porsche 937 (924 Carrera GTS Club Sport). 270HP, 2332LBS.



      If it is a standard Carrera GTS, it is a 1 of 44 car with 245HP/2466lbs

      Although it could be a Carrera GT modified to look like a GTS Clubsport. Still a 1 of 331 car.

      Well, there were no NSX's in the OP....let alone a 1 of 5 NSX-R GT.

      Going through the pics in the link...i did stumble upon what looked like an NSX-R Clone...unless it was the real thing..

      Yeah - the State of CA recognizes it as a 1986 190E 2.3-16 with smog check records dating back to 2009.

      TCL has a wealth of knowledge when it comes to all things automotive. Someone on here can shed light on just about any automotive question.

      I'm a Porsche enthusiast who is partial to 70's, 80's, & 90's Porsches....especially the front engine variety....

      Oh, you were talking about the rarest car ATTENDING. I was talking in the world

      That NSX was an R clone:

      1) No RHD (NSX-R's were JDM only.)
      2) No red Recaros

      Still sexiness though.

      If we are going by rarest in the world...that would be 1 of 1 cars....many of which exist. Porsche 928 GTE, various 1 off BMW M's, etc.

      A fellow car enthusiast I work with just muttered "Wow - so you can polish a turd."

      That's unreal though - I admire his dedication to it, just question his sanity a bit.

      Good eye, I didn't even think of it. They're off the E500.


      Edit:

      If you look at the rear wing and compare it to the one greatfox posted, this one's definitely not real. The wing on the real one is bigger.

      the cosworth does not appear to be the real deal. real cosworth, but with a replica kit, by my eye.

      maybe it's reflection, but the spoiler looks off. some kits were one piece, as this one appears to be.

      excellent car though. sparks dreams of the evoII kitted 16v deep in my barn (fake, with solid wing).

      wow - somebody JUST beat me to the punch on that. also, those wheels could even be off an ML. of course, that edition was heavier and just a subtle bit different profile.

      these cars and coffee meets are insane. i can't believe that abarth, let alone all the other unreal fantasy cars. all in one place. heaven on earth.
