China is hailed as the world’s factory for producing majority of the goods in the market. That’s why it’s not surprising that some enterprising Chinese company will take advantage of the opportunity to make cheaper products based on the available technology and information of luxury brands. After all, counterfeit China-made goods uncannily look like the real thing, save for few misspelling errors and sub-par quality. And for this one girl, she discovered too late that her boyfriend actually drove a good Porsche dupe that completely fooled her.
The hilarious story of one gold digger began when she met the man in a party. According to her, the man seemed reserved, but upon discovering that they live near each other, he offered to give her a lift home.
She was visibly impressed when she saw that he owns a Porsche, nonetheless. Known to be an expensive car brand, the young woman hopped inside for a sweet ride. Because the man acted modest despite his car, she thought highly of him and decided to go out with him on few dates.
After a couple of dinner dates and movies, the lady began to have an intimate relationship with him, asserting that she already developed feelings for him. Lucky to have snagged such a boyfriend, the girl wanted to brag about her catch. She took pictures of her partner’s high-priced car and sent these to her friends.
One of her pals was good enough to point out that the car was, in fact, made by Zoyte, a notorious Porsche knock-off brand. But the girl defended her man, saying that the car had logos that really looked like the real thing. Upon closer inspection, the words read “Zhongtai” and surprise, surprise, not Porsche.
To save face, the girl reportedly dumped the guy because he fooled her into thinking his Porsche was the real deal. However, a quick Google search will reveal that Zoyte is known for producing a clone of Porsche Macan and not Cayenne. Called the SR9, the sports utility vehicle reportedly retails for USD16,115 to USD23,900, equivalent to Php819,000 – Php1.2 million in today’s exchange rate. According to Forbes, this is significantly cheaper than the Macan that sells for about USD83,000 – USD149,000, approximately Php4.2 million to Php7.6 million.
Is there any moral to the story? Well, China does make great clones – good enough to fool someone to bed.
