Its officially SEMA week and that means seeing all the crazy creations that show up in Las Vegas that you never thought were possible. That is probably because it is not, and really just slapped together and pray it stays that way for three days while sitting at some companies booth to draw attention. In all seriousness, it is fun to see some professional mechanics poke around SEMA cars to see what cars are actually built well, and others that maybe need a little more tweaking. Today’s car, a 2008 Porsche 911 Carrera S up for sale in Florida, was a car built for the Toyo Tires booth at SEMA 2016 and as you can see, is pretty wild. Problem is, it is probably a little too wild. At least for their asking price.

At first glance, I was pretty upset because I thought a Turquoise Metallic 997.2 C2S had to give its life for this creation. Thankfully after looking at it closer, it was just a really light option 997.1 that was originally black over black. It looks like they went with some kind of Porsche 935 inspired front end, the craziest fenders they could shape up, and some 997.2 tail lights. Inside, a crazy shifter that I’m sure is a nightmare to use and the most uncomfortable seats you’ve ever laid eyes on. The car also has a full roll cage that is terrifying if you aren’t wearing a helmet but hey, at least they left the infotainment screen. I’m not exactly sure what the plan was for this car as it looks like five different sets of teams all worked together but none actually spoke with each other as to what exactly the plan was. Then they all showed up, did their part, and now you have this.
To take home the honor of owning this car, you are asked to pay $96,000. I have no idea who came up with that number, but you can imagine I doubt they are getting many calls on this thing. Show cars are almost always impossible to sell unless you give them away, and this one takes it a step much further and asks you to pay a giant premium. It is useless as a race car, even more useless as a street car, and old news as a show car. What is the meaning of all this?
