Chevrolet SSR with a Porsche complex – Click above for image gallery

If you like Porsche sportscars, may we suggest that you avert your eyes. Ironically, we'd still recommend the same if you aren't a fan of Stuttgart's Cayenne. Because if you thought that Porsche having an SUV was tough to swallow, that ain't nothin' compared to what's been done to this Chevrolet SSR.

Outfitted with the wheels, brakes and what appears to be a number of interior pieces from the Porsche 911 GT3, this particular SSR seems to be suffering from something of an identity crisis. (We dare not ask what the donor Porsche came away looking like). But that's not all: the owner appears to have made some unique modifications to the body as well, including a whale's mouth (ostensibly in, um... "tribute" to the GT3's whale tail spoiler, which rather surprisingly has not been fitted to the Chevy's bed cover) and rather small (presumably high-intensity discharge) headlamps.

If you're wondering when you might happen upon the unique creature, this mod job is far away from U.S. roads in Rügland, Germany, and comes to us via the magic of the internet. You're welcome. However, it can actually be yours for one easy payment of $105,000. No, we're not kidding. But if you're actually contemplating dropping that much cash on something like this, perhaps you might consider letting us steer you towards greener pastures, like, perhaps a genuine Porsche?

      The SSR was an epic fail of a car. Sold poorly. But, this on the other hand is done in poor taste. We lost a good Porsche for this.

        Just to give you guys an idea of the SSR's target demographic:
        This guy at work cashed out $22,000 (he said it was a family emergency) from his 401k to buy an SSR... he still owes 3k on it.

        Honestly, I think they wanted to get a hold of the clinically retarded portion of car buyers. That is the only logical explanation.

        Asking $41,995 for those was pure insanity. That limited its sales right there.

      ahhhh! my eyes! make it stop!

      Unfind it, please.

      Looks like an alien trekkie vehicle. Especially with these Franconian buildings in the background.
      No sir, this thing belongs to the U.S.
      Best would be to disembowel it.

      Come on, at least it's as fast as the GT3 on the Nurburgring (sarcasm intended)

      So what's it's 'Ring time?

        I think the regular SSR is ugly as sin, but this is just horridness.

        @HotRodzNKustoms
        It's atrocious as hell!

        I don't like SSRs but after seeing this, they are a design masterpiece.

      Rolls Royce Phantom? GT3? hmmm wat the heck is that? hmm ugly... its name world ugliest car.
      • 5 Years Ago
      First is is butt ugly.
      Secondly it looks nothing like a GT3 or any Porsche.
      If anything the front end looks like the Maybach Excelero.

      This is awful. Utterly repulsive. All responsible for this abomination should be dragged into the streets and promptly shot.

      The SSR should not exist - it's unapologetically ugly to begin with (offense to SSR fans intended). $105k? Really? How 'bout an actual Porsche?
      • 5 Years Ago
      Who the hell thought that was a good idea? Seriously?
        • 5 Years Ago
        problably the garage owner. Must have made some good money on this...

        but of course, if there is such a thing as pride and honor amongst rice.. I mean, tuners, then he probably comited suicide after this.
