The wheelarch, engine cover slope, and door height.

And before you guys say anything, I know the existence of Photoshop :| But surely the wheelarch is a bit too uncanny? ;)

79-85 Cadillac Eldorado. I'd say the one they used in the pic was an 85, as that was the only year for those specific wheels with the black center cap.

Everything you never wanted to know about the 85 Eldo: http://www.100megsfree4.com/cadillac/cad1980/cad85e.htm

- - - Updated - - -

To save you the trouble - the Eldo's wheelbase is 110" and the Porsche's is 107".

Amusingly, the Porsche is 3000lbs curb weight, which is only 800lbs less than the land barge.

Go away....look at something else...
and there is a lot of Photoshop going on the wheel arches. I used the said program to make this -



I aligned new CGT image on the windscreen and the humps behind the seats. By doing that the wheel arch placements go out of whack. The line that goes from the side air intake to the rear wheel arch is completely different on the Samsungs version.

The revised version makes the Carrera GT look really big compared to the Eldorado though.
