Seen at Concours on the Avenue in Carmel on Tuesday
Alloy replica with option 1 engine. Very detailed. No quotes but not inexpensive.

Their advertising sheet says alloy body and various engines including air cooled 4-cam available. No pricing.

I saw it at the Porsche Werks Reunion on Friday the 18th of Aug. Very nice down to every detail, only thing I didn't like was the white paint. I think they start at around $250k for the model with the 356 engine.

Alloy Cars. Advertiser in ReinCarNation mag (formerly Kit Car Builder). Definitely a cut above, for only 5-6 times the price of a Beck or Vintage.

I am intrigued by the inner clamshell panel, which appears unique to the (replica) marque. It looks like it would work better and be stronger than the original design, but it's also an instant "tell" to the kinds of folks who would care to tell the difference between the Alloy car and an original.

I believe the Spyder Factory guys (New Hampshire) try to hew to the original drawings to within a few tenths of a millimeter, and charge about the same. Guessing the difference might be in the wait time, which I believe is several years for the Spyder Factory.
