Default Fugliest 928 ever!

I bought this car because it is unique.

3 spoke steering wheel
ugly black paint with "Sunny Turbo" printed all over it in repetition
5 sp
somewhat odd stance, almost looks like a 928 kit car- you know how the Fiero/Ferraris look?
chrome 3 spoke wheels
linen interior
white rear tail lamp enclosures
and finally a very rare and unique spring drive system.

I paid $3.99

It pulls a little to the right but is good for about 160... inches/minute.

wow - clear lenses all around.
2-tone paint job
saggy butt - something hanging down there
Single color interior - EVERYTHING except steering wheel and doors same color
Kinda looks like the rear hatch tapers in from the top down

What a unique find!

On top of that its a 5 speed.
I hope if has tilt steering though, otherwise it would be uncomfortable to fit in the driver seat.

Interesting Steering wheel placement.... Maybe this is designed for men who must have one hand free for coffee and the other for a cell phone? Also, looks like the front wheels are the wrong offset... maybe they came from a FWD car.

I think I have one of those in a different color. Have to look... Where did you find that one?

Either way, I have much more ugly ones. And I MEAN ugly...!

Nicole- I found it at a grocery store here in UT. They had a number of diecasts displayed, most were New Beetles, some were old Beetles, some MR2s etc. This was the only Porsche I saw. I suspect that they have more at one of their 10 other stores.

I honestly can't see how you'd have anything uglier than this.

Jorj- Congrats. We should put a show together, maybe a race. How about @ the Bonneville 100? What speed class would these qualify for?

bigs- blur = poor cameraman. I took the picture on my driveway so that all the neighborhood hotties could peep my ride!
