Do you love the C8 Corvette? What about Jet Skis? If you answered yes to both of those questions, then I have some good news for you. At this very moment, you have the chance to buy a combination of both of those things. It's called a JetCar and it's a two-seat boat/Jet Ski hybrid that looks like a Corvette from Wish and is currently up for auction from Boats and Buyers.

This JetCar 'Vette' is made by JetCar USA, the Hollywood, Florida-based manufacturer of these two-seat, supercar lookalike Jet Skis. It's powered by a 1.8-liter four-cylinder Yamaha engine that makes 180 horsepower. That might sound like a far cry from the Corvette's 495 horsepower but the JetCar only weighs around 1,200 pounds.

Like all JetCars, this aquatic Corvette comes equipped with headlights, taillights, a navigation system, windshield wipers, and a six-speaker Bluetooth sound system. It's 15 feet long, its body is made from fiberglass, and it has a giant rear wing.

This specific one is red with black accents, black "wheels," and what seems to be some carbon fiber cabin trim. According to the listing, there are no hours on the engine yet, so it hasn't been used. If you like this idea but don't like Corvettes, JetCar has other supercar lookalike models you can choose from, such as the Bugatti Chiron, a Porsche 911, and a Lamborghini Aventador.

At the time of writing this, the JetCar 'Vette' has a current bid of $6,000 and there are still three days left on the auction. It's hard to say what this aquatic Corvette lookalike will end up eventually selling for, as I'm not sure there's market data on such tings. But if you're interested, slap on your polarized Oakleys, grab your Yeti cooler, put in a winning bid, and hit the water.
