A 2014 Porsche Boxster starts at $50,400. Don”t have that kind of scratch? If you have some spare tubing, cardboard and creativity, you might be able to make the next best thing. An incredibly creative Austrian by the name of Johannes Langeder wanted a Porsche… so he found a way. He decided to make his dream car when he realized he couldn”t buy one. It took six months and 1,000 hours in total work time to complete this project. The labor of love was so worth it.

The “car” is street legal, too. Since it”s powered by cycling, it”s considered a bicycle (even though to passers by it seems like a high-powered luxury vehicle). Hopefully Johannes stays off the road, though, because a collision with this car wouldn”t end well. To see it in action, watch the video below: (H/T Elite Daily) Faking it until you make it is a legitimate strategy… at least if you can built a nearly perfect Porsche out of cardboard. Share Johannes awesome creation, it”s too cool not to.
