Covin Porsche 911 Replica 12

Beginning in the early eighties, Covin built a Porsche 911 Turbo replica (both in this style and as a flatnose). Normally built around VW components and a fiberglass body, Luke’s example is running a 2 litre twin cam Vauxhall engine, currently for sale on eBay UK (#180254304436, located in Somerset). While it’s true that you can now buy a genuine Porsche 911 for not much more than a Covin replica, the truth is that the Covin is a far rarer vehicle, as well as costing less to maintain and insure… If you’re interested in more info, check out Covin Technical.

    So it’s rarer than a 911? Do you think there might be a reason for that? A car that looks like a 911, but has an asthmatic 4 cyl engine? Ooooh, yummy!

    You can easily update to later models by simply changing the front and rear panel and lights, still a substantial amount cheaper than the real 911 turbo, mine is powered by Subaru turbo which gives enough g forces to place you firmly in your seat.

    Covin owners are sad, wifeless, gay orientated wankers that have absolutely no class. Driving a fake porsche. COME ON MAN, GET A FUCKING LIFE. Everybody knows your porsche is fake and THAT’s why you get laughed at behind your back. touting your replica goods around if they’re real is SOO FUCKING SAD!

    I am working on a 77 911S and the wheels began to turn (pun) when I saw Factory Five’s new 818 kit…
    I want a Covin body to put on a tube frame so I can put whatever engine I want and try some of my ideas without messing up a real Porsche. Anybody know where I could find a Covin? I have a 944 with a bunch of extra parts that I will gladly trade.
