All that glisters is Porsche

The town of Pforzheim in south-west Germany is home to the first Gold-plated Porsche. The steering wheel, door knobs to the car, body and alloy rims, are all gold plated.

Nine more Porsche Models will be transformed into jewelry through the same process.

I might hold out for the diamond Porsche ... but that gold one is very pretty.

Update: while I wait for my diamond Porsche I can make do with a $US1.3M diamond encrusted mobile phone. So, so pretty.


  1. Zoom zoom bling. How decadent.

  2. The car would kind of stick out in my neighborhood.

  3. Sure Drunka, but think of Billy Bob, tongue hanging out, hair blowing in the wind ... aaaahh, I can see it now.

  4. Yuck. Looks ugly.

    Porsche makes car that are good at going quick on those nice mountain roads. Leave the ridiculous posing to Mexicans and Puerto Ricans in pimped-up Cadillacs.
    ...or people from Toorak in the current model Range Rover that never goes offroad. Just as bad.
