That is so weird.

With the talk of doubloons, this version of the ad is back into hoax territory. But these ads were NOT published April 1st, even if the video was.

I am convinced this is a scam and that as long as it is documented here, it will likely fail.

1. I think it's fake
But 2. That olive green car is Porsche's version of the Kubelwagen. It's called the Typ 597 Jagdwagen.
And 3. Porsche did make a version of the Vanagon called the B32. It had an air-cooled 911 flat six out of a 911 3.2 Carrera AND it had VW badging. So there's a slight chance this is legit, but I doubt it.

They even posted the video on April 1st just in case the law gets involved in their scam. They will try to claim this was a hoax.

What an insane scam.


If they sell their hoax for any excessive price, April 1 won't help them. But insane scam indeed!

Haha! Hoax indeed (not the 597 Jagdwagen but the 181 Porsche)! The german speaking lady starts with: 'They asked me to speak some German, I know nothing of Porsche'. Very Happy
