When Porsche's design studio decides to go after a marketplace, it rarely fails to impress. Such was the case when it released the FS Evolution mountain bike. The bike pictured here is the 2001 model, mainly because we think it looks better than the 2002 model. The carbon fibre frame has retained its natural carbon fibre finish. The disc brakes are Megura and the suspension is adjustable both front and rear. Indeed, the forks are upside-down design, delivering a staggering 140mm of wheel travel. The price tag weighs in at $10,612 which makes the 2002 model FS just under $1,000 a kilogram for its 11.5 kg weight.
