Humor doesn't always translate well from one language to another, especially in subtitles, and maybe even more so in German. However, to Porsche fans and those of us familiar with Porsche's push to "green" technology, the humor should come across loud and clear in the video below (if you're email program isn't showing the video, simply click on the title of the post to watch it on our site).
Humor aside, the creator of this pedal powered Porsche has done a masterful job recreating the look and feel of the real thing. Check out this impressive slide show to see the build process and the attention to detail involved (some email programs may not show the slide show. Again, simply click on the title of this post and you will be able to see it on our site. It's worth it!).
Now, if only they could have added some type of exhaust note recording like these super cool Porsche 550, 356 Carrera Speedster and 904 Electric Scale Models, it would be complete. If you're German is better than mine, you can find more details on the builder's web-site.
