News from the Copy Shop

Post  Valentin K on Fri Apr 08, 2011 12:47 pm

As some of you might know, there is a certain set of automobile manufacturers trying desperately at copying the cars of other manufacturers. However, it appears that copying is getting more popular around the globe.

Original


Fake


Yup, they did it. Opel copied almost the entire rear half of the Renault Megane Coupe to create the Astra GTC. Seriously, have they run out of ideas?

If I have a look at the back of the actual Porsche Cayenne I have to ask too: Have they run out of ideas?

This thing looks like a copy of a South Korean or a Chinese car.

I agree with you Tuk. Porsche should concentrate on doing what they're better at anyway...

Everything about the Porsche Cayenne is abhorrent.
