Normally a Fauxrrari is made from the bones of some other car, usually a Fiero, and it elicits jeers from around the Intertubes. In the case of this 1967 Ferrari P4 replica for sale on Hemmings.com, however, the bones come from a 1979 Ferrari 308 GT4. It was apparently a formula that builder Jim Carpenter appeared to have mined to some success during the Ferrari boom of the late 1980s and early 1990s, and this example is being sold as the first of that series. From the seller’s description:
This is the first car which was modified with “67 P4″ style bodywork by Jim Carpenter and his Ferrari restoration and High Performance shop in Scottsdale in the early 90′s. This car features the stock 308 engine longitudinally placed in front of a 915 ZF 5 speed box. The 308 stock brakes are placed inboard in the rear. The suspension has Boxer knockoff hubs and Boxer 7.5″ and 9″ wheels. The 308 carb motor is in mild tune with single distributor delivering 250hp. The car has just undergone a mild refurbishment with fresh paint and a front-to-back check and service of any needed components. The cooling system was checked and serviced, new clutch, carbs adjusted and many, many more items to the tune of $26K.
