Speedster Replicas

My buddy Ecce noticed this bunch of Speedster replicas on his trip to Redmond, Washington. Speedster replicas, car replicas and kit cars, are something I've never understod. These replicas look like professionally built, yet it is obvious even from this distance that they're not real deal and they can cost around the same as steelbodied 356 coupes do.

Having said that replicas can be quite cool when built to the max without the intention to look like fake Porsche. Like the Swedish one above from last year's Bug Run which is sort of an exception that confirms the rule :-)
