Covin Porsche 911 Replica8 Comment

Covin, eBay, For Sale, Porsche 911 | Mon, 16 Jun 2008 Posted by :

Beginning in the early eighties, Covin built a Porsche 911 Turbo replica (both in this style and as a flatnose). Normally built around VW components and a fiberglass body, Luke’s example is running a 2 litre twin cam Vauxhall engine, currently for sale on eBay UK (#180254304436, located in Somerset). While it’s true that you can now buy a genuine Porsche 911 for not much more than a Covin replica, the truth is that the Covin is a far rarer vehicle, as well as costing less to maintain and insure… If you’re interested in more info, check out Covin Technical.

  1. I am working on a 77 911S and the wheels began to turn (pun) when I saw Factory Five’s new 818 kit…
    I want a Covin body to put on a tube frame so I can put whatever engine I want and try some of my ideas without messing up a real Porsche. Anybody know where I could find a Covin? I have a 944 with a bunch of extra parts that I will gladly trade.

    I want a Covin 911 Replica ASAP preferably tax exempt, a finished project with a turbo charged engine Subaru Turbo will do nicely. My contact is vincentkh40@hotmail.com cash waiting.

    Covin owners are sad, wifeless, gay orientated wankers that have absolutely no class. Driving a fake porsche. COME ON MAN, GET A FUCKING LIFE. Everybody knows your porsche is fake and THAT’s why you get laughed at behind your back. touting your replica goods around if they’re real is SOO FUCKING SAD!

      Sounds like someone is upset that they got the same toy for a fraction of the price ooch. They look the same to me, good one guys.

    You can easily update to later models by simply changing the front and rear panel and lights, still a substantial amount cheaper than the real 911 turbo, mine is powered by Subaru turbo which gives enough g forces to place you firmly in your seat.

    Its not that bad, I didnt get to see the asking price, with so many kit cars having VW engines is this 2000cc that bad?

    So it’s rarer than a 911? Do you think there might be a reason for that? A car that looks like a 911, but has an asthmatic 4 cyl engine? Ooooh, yummy!
