An artist in Austria has built a replica of a Porsche sports car. It's not only the world's cleanest and lightest, but the artist proudly bills his creation as the world's slowest Porsche. He built it out of tinfoil, tape and two bicycles. It's currently on display at a museum.

Here's why: He built it out of tinfoil and tape and two bicycles. It's currently on display at a museum. You can also see the artist pedaling his Porsche around a track on YouTube.

That's the business news for MORNING EDITION, from NPR News. I'm Mary Louise Kelly.
