Alice's Porsche and Stunt Double on Set in Italy

Oooh, nice ride! I gotta get me one of those. Maybe Santa Clause will be extra kind this year, maybe not. Bummer...
This news comes from Twilighters Italia!
"Today our forum mods were in Montepulciano and look what they've found: Alice's Yellow Porsche! At the beginning our loved racing car was covered by a grey robe, but our indefatigable facilitator/ moderator, suspicious of the dimensions and by the chromed wheels, have began questioning people around. Mauro Pellegrini the owner of the tow truck, had orders by the production not to uncover the car, but after explaining him who they were to his boss, our heroines have even been invited to remain till the end of the shooting!!
The big man you can see in some pictures is one of the stuntmen. He had an Alice wig, a bandana, a couple of elbow high red gloves, and seemingly from far he actually looked like our loved little vampire/pixie Mauro secretly told us that there are two yellow porsche in Montepulciano, placed in different places of the town. As they were not exactly identical, one had yellow brake pad cover and another had them red, Production was willing to spend to the incredible amount of €5800 PER PIECE to have them all red!!! Luckily they found out a way to paint them, but this episode says a lot on how high is this movie's budget!!! The helicopter we told you about ealier, has kept low-flying whole day long filming aerial of the main square.. The fountain is not finished yet, so probably this was a rehearsal or shooting for the DVD's extra-contents . It also flown over where the porsche was, so probably we'll see some Twilighters on the big screen : our Marghe's car has been filmed by Alice's car!! We are honoured!!"
See all the pictures and a video here.
Thanks Twilight Treasury for the heads up!

Hoho. Alice’s famous Porsche! I gotta admit -- it was Alice’s fault why most of my dream cars are yellow. Yellow Lamb, yellow Dodge, and of course, yellow Porsche! And another thing why she loved this Turbo 911 is because it’s super fast (probably runs as fast as her haha!).

A yellow Porsche! Alice really made the right choice. She got that 911 Turbo so Bella can go to the Volturi’s headquarters in time. Orayt. Enough of Twilight! :p But, that car scene was really awesome!
