We think there would be considerably more car-themed furniture in the world were it not for the institution of marriage. While we would have no problem flopping the tail section of a 2005 Porsche 911 in the living room in place of an entertainment center and TV stand, something tells us that would be a hard sell to our significant others. While Porsche Design does make some beautiful pieces that we're sure our better halves wouldn't mind owning, we can't see them cottoning on to the efforts of one enterprising individual, who has taken to manufacturing custom TV stands from the rear haunches of certain Porsche models. The entertainment centers apparently use genuine parts from the German manufacturer, right down to the wheels and brake calipers on the rear wheels.

Buyers can order up any color they so please, and the display will accommodate up to a 42-inch flat-screen television that rises from the cars innards at the push of a button. Would we have one if money were no object? Probably not, but there's a chance we'd happily park our posteriors on a '59 Cadillac couch. Hit the jump to check out the Porsche display stand after the jump.

      As much as I love Porsche, that's just a waste of space in the living room..

        '57 Chevy sofa is nicer if you want car furniture.

      This looks like someone accidentally shifted into drive when they tried to reverse, and the car plowed into the house. No thanks.

      I guess I have to be the first one to say that's a '99 to '04 996, not a 2005 997....

        Actually, the 996 was still produced for the '05 MY as the C4S, Turbo, and GT3. But seeing as in how this car is definitely a narrow body, it can't be a Turbos or C4S. And the chances of it being a GT3 w/ standard 911 bumper/bonnet and pre '01 taillights are virtually nil. As for the setup itselt, it's horrendous. And that's coming from a diehard Porsche fan.

      I would have used a 993 but the place it is cut is soo random - the most beautiful part of the car, and they just wack it. I think it would be better if the car was cut horizontally - just above the bumper, then mount that on the wall - then you could see more of the "hips" and the screen would not have to go in and out, it could just be where the glass is. The whole deal could be wall mounted. the way it is - just sucks on many levels....

      Isn't the point of having a flatscreen is to save space? Might as well get one of the DLP tv's. Unless you have a complete Porsche theme going, this just looks so tacky and out of place.

      Sad that this probably costs more than a 2005 911.

      I'd rather have a glass wall between the living room and the garage and a real live, running Porsche 911 sitting in it. I really hate when function doesn't follow form and it just doesn't get more functionless than this monstrosity. What a waste of perfectly good Porsche parts.

      Since Porsche charges ridiculous prices for "options" that should be standard, does the remote for this monstrosity cost an extra $1200?

      You open the engine bay and there is all the other electronics or a fully stocked bar. I think it would be better if the whole rear window flipped to reveal the TV.
