Here's an interesting aerodynamic car - for something that you cannot easily see on the outside.



Here's the hidden interesting feature:

I've also vacationed in Stillwater, MN oddly enough....... did you come all the way out here just for CCS?

Lucky you!

Yes, I did travel to Detroit just for CCS. It was closer than Art Center in Pasadena. I walked by that EV1 every day for four years. It did seem sad- as if no one really wanted it there so they just stuck it in a corner with no description or anything. There are some posters by it now but most students regard it as "ugly". They don't get it. Some aren't into the whole intellectual design thing- they just want it flashy. The EV1 takes some percolation to appreciate.

The car's new home is in the Argonaut building (I refuse to call it their new name, the A. Alfred Taubman Center for Design Education).

Anyway, Stillwater's nice too but it doesn't have the urbex.

Too bad it's a Photoshop. Saab actually made a GT750 based on the 93, but it definitely did not have that bodywork. The "Sonett" engine they refer to must be that used in the extremely rare (5 built) 94, aka Sonett I.

Regardless, and actual GT750. (Or so says Flickr- they're hard to tell apart from 93's)

That Saab is so cool.

See my car's mod & maintenance thread and my electric bicycle's thread for ongoing projects. I will rebuild Black and Green over decades as parts die, until it becomes a different car of roughly the same shape and color. My minimum fuel economy goal is 55 mpg while averaging posted speed limits. I generally top 60 mpg. See also my Honda manual transmission specs thread.
