Scott, it makes no sense to me either but keep in mind, Singer sells 1960's look Porsche 911's for $500,000 and they are sold out for the next four years! There are lots of wealthy people around who want something different and don't mind paying dearly for nostalgia.
Yep, I was thinking the same thing then read your post. I guess a variable is that Porsche has had a continuously and largely flourishing business enterprise vs DeTomaso. Time tends to fade greatness and memories.(just ask Alfa Romeo.)
Far as the authenticity and legitimacy, if this is to be seen as credible, the marketing professionals should step in and position it in a way befitting a $300k+ car.
In addition, someone should disconnect the son's ability to do any more PR, and perhaps have him quit snorting bug spray.
