Did You know the Porsche W3 Triposto by Wingho Auto?

~Unique ONES~ Most sports cars are made with a composition of 2 seats in the cabin. However, later in its development there were several well-known manufacturers developed a 3-seater sports car with the driver's position in the middle and flanked by 2 passengers on the left and right. In fact, that isn't a new concept in the automotive world, there're many three-seater sports cars have been launched by automakers.

For example, the Ferrari 365 P Berlinetta Speciale 'Tre Posti' is launched in the 1966 though only two units ever made. Furthermore, the British automaker McLaren produced a 3-seater sports car called the McLaren F1 during periods of 1989 to 1996. Later in 2018, the British automaker returned to nostalgia with a three-seater sports car by launching the McLaren Speedtail.

If those three examples above are well-known sports cars that are widely known by the world's automotive public, on the contrary, here is an example of a tre posti sports car that is less well known to the public. Although, not many people know or even see it before, however the Porsche W3 Triposto that's how's the car called was built by Montreal's Wingho Auto based on the 1991 Porsche 911 (type 964) sports car chassis.

Plymouth Prowler, a modern American hot rod style of 1990s

~Unique ONES~ For automotive fans, seeing unique-shaped cars can be fun and excitement. Because in addition all those cars have unusual shapes, usually also got futuristic themes. Although vice versa, Plymouth, one of Chrysler's classic subsdiary brands gave a different look to a car it made called the Plymouth Prowler.
The Plymouth Prowler Concept was first featured at the Detroit Auto Show in 1993, and no one ever imagined it would actually go into production. (Picture from: Carthrottle)
As we all know, Plymouth was more famous and respected as an American muscle car brand for years during 1960s to 1970s, with many its cars especially two flagship models, the Barracuda and Road Runner, both of which were legendary. And in 1990s, Plymouth cameback to make a breakthrough by launching and showing a concept car with an unusual design which was later named the Plymouth Prowler at the Detroit Auto Show 1993.
The Plymouth Prowler Concept was first featured at the Detroit Auto Show in 1993, and no one ever imagined it would actually go into production. (Picture from: Motorious)
As quoted from Motorious, at the time the automotive world seem like strucked by a storm. Because, for too long, the American automaker had pumped out some kind a never-ending array of boxy and quite frankly uninspiring vehicles. Well, it can't be denied anymore, the Prowler have been a complete shock, so the fact it emerged from the halls of Chrysler made it that much more jarring to the industry. 
The Plymouth Prowler Concept was first featured at the Detroit Auto Show in 1993, and no one ever imagined it would actually go into production. (Picture from: Motorious)
It turns out that the style isn't the only unique thing about the Prowler, the recliner is also unique. The body and frame are made using a lot of aluminum. This was unique, in that no other Chrysler product, or many other cars at that, used aluminum in their construction, mainly because of its cost.

Retro before retro was hot, the hotrod generated buzz beyond just gearheads and auto journalists, getting the general public talking. Well, for a moment the public was amazed by the radically designed concept car, at the same time was also made the Chrysler top brasses felt assure, and then concluded that the Prowler was capable of strengthening the company's images.

Seeing such a positive public reaction to the concept, Chrysler then made another controvertial decisions and managed to surprise the automotive world once again when it finally realized the Plymouth Prowler in the production version in 1997 by retaining almost the entire iconic modern intepretation designs inspired by a classic vehicles of 1930s that was previously attached to the concept version.

Unfortunately the sales performance of the production version of the Plymouth Prowler is not as good as it looks. One of the main reasons is also because the performance of the engine is not as expected. Well, its 3.5 liter V6 engine is only able to provide power to the Prowler around 214 hp. Shortly after its launch, this car was discontinued in 2001, with 12,000 units were scooped up by buyers.
Although in the end this weird looking cool car more sought after by car collectors to be used as a display rather than used as ordinary daily rides vehicles. Despite all controversy, at least the world had ever enjoyed one of radical shape cars made by those Chrysler's subsidiary brand, which is then being sold to the public. *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | MOTORIOUS | CARTHROTTLE ]

It's a shame that the unique Porsche Tapiro had to end tragically

~Forgotten ONES~ Of the many concept cars built on car chassis of Porsche, one of the famous German car brands, only a few are unique and interesting. And one of them could be this Porsche Tapiro which is a car made by Italian coachbuilder ItalDesign in the 1970s. Well, the car name originating from the pig-like herbivorous mammal called tapir.
The Porsche Tapiro Concept designed by Giorgetto Giugiaro in 1970s, and built based on the Porsche 914/6 platform. (Picture from: Motor1)
Reportedly, the design of the 1970s dream car was intentionally built to be extreme both in form and mechanics, but the possibility of mass production was still considered. This Porsche Tapiro was designed during 1970s by Giorgetto Giugiaro, a famous Italian designer from ItalDesign. This uniquely shaped car was the Giugiaro made 4th prototype and has become one of his favorite works to date.
The Porsche Tapiro had a windshield profile that was almost the same height as the hood. (Picture from: Motor1)
As quoted from Wikipedia, Tapiro's design most likely took inspiration from the iconic DeTomaso Mangusta which was also the work of Giorgetto Giugiaro while he was working for Ghia. From its appearance, it can be seen that the Tapiro was built in a 'wedge' shape for the first time in that era, and would be used again in many other car models in the following years, thus becoming a design trend during the 1970s.
The Porsche Tapiro is equipped with a gullwing door type as access to the cabin, not only that, the such unique shape of the door is also applied to the engine compartment. (Picture from: Motor1)
The Porsche Tapiro had a windshield profile that was almost the same height as the hood, and was also equipped with very exotic doors and a hood which was considered such a luxury solution although some people considered it eccentric for the time. Did you know that the Tapiro is a source of inspiration from the legendary DMC DeLorean car?
The Porsche Tapiro featured all those great Giugiaro styling flourishes, such as geometric air-ducting a cheese wedge profile and a futuristic cabin surrounded by an acreage of glass. (Picture from: Motor1)
As seen as, this Porsche Tapiro is equipped with a gullwing design door to be used as access to the cabin, not only that, the such unique shape of the door is also applied to the engine room and luggage room. Even more unique, unlike most concept cars which are only made as models from clay plaster, the Porsche Tapiro is a fully functional vehicle, in other words, this car can be run like an ordinary production version car.
The Porsche Tapiro concept is powered by a mid-mounted inline 6-cylinder 2.4-liter Porsche engine. (Picture from: Motor1)
Well, the Porsche Tapiro, which is 4,060 mm long, 1,760 mm wide and 1,110 mm high, is built based on the Porsche 914/6 platform, and is powered by a mid-mounted inline 6-cylinder 2.4-liter Porsche engine. And the machine is capable of producing 220 bhp of power at 7,200 rpm. The concept was engineered with a five-speed manual gearbox and had an official top speed of 245 kph.
Giorgetto Giugiaro and his son Fabrizio look sadly at the Tapiro remains in the front of ItalDesign HQ in Turin. (Picture from: Motor1)
After completion, this Tapiro concept car was shown for the first time in public at the 1970 Turin Motor Show. As quoted of Motor1, the car subsequently made its US debut at the 5th Annual Los Angeles Imported Automobile and Sports Car Show in 1971. After two years of traveling at various major world's auto shows, the Italian coachbuilder then sold the Tapiro to Waldo de los Ríos, an Argentine composer in 1973, after it made an appearance at the Barcelona Motor Show.
Today the burnt shell of the Porsche Tapiro is on display at the Giugiaro Museum's lawn. (Picture from: Autoevolution)
Some rumors say that the Porsche Tapiro had served as Waldo de los Ríos daily rides until it ended miserably at one terrible incident in Madrid, where most of the car was destroyed after it caught fire. As quoted from Wikipedia, most sources say the cause of the fire was a group of labor activists protesting against the labor policies at the time, who planted a bomb under the Tapiro. The bomb exploded, burning the car but not destroying the chassis.
While other sources said the car was involved in an accident somewhere and caught fire at that time. The car remains were later re-purchased by ItalDesign but never rebuilt, and today the burnt shell of the Porsche Tapiro is on display at the Giugiaro Museum's lawn. *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | WIKIPEDIA | MOTOR1 | AUTOEVOLUTION | ADRIANFLUX ]

The 2023 Alfa Romeo supercar teaser appears for the first time

~NEW Supercar~ As we've entered the new year of 2023, Alfa Romeo uploaded a short video highlighting its current products to its official Instagram account. On December 30, 2022, to be precise, the Italian brand introduced the slightly updated Alfa Romeo Giulia and Alfa Romeo Stelvio. And then those two cars are joined with the brand new compact crossover Alfa Romeo Tonale went into the global market.

But who would have thought, at the beginning of 2023 it seems that Alfa Romeo has prepared to present something much more interesting. As we can see at the end of the video, there is a glimpse of the taillight design which is currently not offered on any of those three mentioned car models that being sold by the Italian brand at the moment.
Teaser image of the new Alfa Romeo supercar's taillight taken from a short video uploaded in the Italian company offical Instagram account. (Picture from: idMotor1)
And if you look closely, it looks similar to the round taillights, which instantly reminds us to the Alfa Romeo 4C was discontinued its production several years ago, then had also offered on the Alfa Romeo 8C, which was sold in the late 2000s. What is clear, this new supercar is likely to be placed in between the two.
The 2022 Alfa Romeo Giulia look fantastic, it also offers one of the most satisfying driving experiences in its segment. (Picture from: CarAndDriver)
It is also reported that the new supercar will adopt a six-cylinder engine, which will most likely be a twin-turbo 2.9-liter V6. Indeed, this drivetrain has been used in the Alfa Romeo Giulia GTA which is capable of producing around 540 horsepower and 442 lbs-feet (600 Newton-meters) of torque. So it will be interesting to see if Alfa Romeo's engineers will improve those performance numbers when the such a kind of engine is placed in the new supercar in question.

Well, the supercar shown briefly in the short video here cannot be confused with Alfa Romeo Zagato's one-off creation which was also launched late last year. What we all know is that it's a short wheelbase two-seat coupe model written by the Zagato to mark the 100th anniversary of this Milan-based coachbuilder's collaboration with Alfa Romeo.
Here's the Alfa Romeo's first compact SUV named Alfa Romeo Tonale looks great but struggles to deliver thrills or performance. (Picture from: id.Motor1)
As the Alfa Romeo CEO Jean-Philippe Imparato suggested the official launch of the new Alfa Romeo supercar would take place in March 2023, where he also hinted that this special supercar would be produced in limited numbers and come with a high price tag.

As quoted from Motor1, this mysterious supercar model, temporarily known as the Alfa Romeo 6C, which is said emerged to remedy the wounds and disappointments that arose when the Italian brand had announced the revival of the GTV and 8C but were later cancelled. This will also likely to be the last petrol engined car product launch from the brand under the Stellantis auspices. 
Imparato further also suggested the supercar would be a real Alfa Romeo model, meaning it would not be a rebranded Maserati MC20. Just for your info, Alfa Romeo will transform into a pure electric vehicle brand by the end of the decade, in which the next-generation Alfa Romeo Giulia and Stelvio have been confirmed as EVs, that's a kind of sign for the ending of the ICE models of Alfa Romeo fastly approaching. *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | ALFA ROMEO | ID.MOTOR1 | TOPGEAR | ED OVENS | AUTOEVOLUTION ]

Here's 5 scarce models of the Fiat 2300 Speciale by Pininfarina

~Scarce ONES~ After searching for quite a long time in the virtual world, we finally found several references related to the beautiful car made by Pininfarina in the early 1960s which was built based on the Fiat 2300, and Fiat 2300 S. As we all knew, the car is a six-cylinder executive car which was produced by Italian automotive manufacturer Fiat during 1961 to 1969. 
The first prototype of 1962 Fiat 2300 Coupé Speciale by Pininfarina. (Picture from: Pinterest)
So at that time many famous Italian coachbuilders were customizing this model, such as Abarth, Ghia and Pininfarina. Of the many modified cars made by coachbuilder at that time, (in our opinion) it turned out that Pininfarina's works had the most attractive and very unique appearance.
Fiat presented the "sporty" variants of its flagship 2300 during 1961 to 1969, as classy granturismos that did not disfigure in the presence of the more noble coupés of the time. (Picture from: Autofun)
This is not surprising because these Pininfarina created cars was built based on a design from an American auto designer, Tom Tjaarda when he worked at those Turin-based coachbuider. And most of the design appears very striking in contrast to the futuristic lines that tend to be rounded like bullets, which later became the inspiration for many designers in creating beautiful cars in the 1960s to 1970s.

Well then the modification works based on the Fiat 2300, and Fiat 2300 S by the famous Turin-based coachbuilder is known carried out on 5 (five) concept cars with their own characteristics that might you've never knew before. Here they are as follows:

1. 1962 Fiat 2300 Coupé Speciale
The first unit was the car built based on the Fiat’s 6-cylinder flagship of the 1960s. This 2-seater classic car is built only one unit, and was characterized by a unique roof panel that could be extended in height, and presented for the first time at the Turin Auto Show 1962.

Furthermore, when viewed from the exterior design of this model it looks similar to the ones built by Ghia, which its front fascia appears with sharp angular, sleek design lines, coupled with a typical shield-shaped grille flanked by four large rounded headlights.

2. 1963 Fiat 2300 Cabriolet Speciale
The 2-seater classic car is also built only one unit, and featured with a targa roof version of Coupé Speciale. Unlike the model made in the previous year, this Cabriolet model has a front fascia that has applied a rounded, and sleek design line with a square grille flanked by four compact-sized headlights. Its bumper also looks unique which can be seen right under the headlights.

It also featured with the distinctive reverse-sloped c-pillars plus large wraparound fastback rear window and was crisply executed and provided ample interior space for four plus luggage. This car is presented for the first time at the Geneva Motor Show 1963.

3. 1963 Fiat 2300 S Lausanne
This third model was built by a Turin-based coachbuilder with a coupe design that is made almost similar to the Cabriolet model above and the absence of a central pillar. As quoted from Story-Cars, given that Battista and Sergio Pininfarina have often formally marked their attachment to Switzerland and the Geneva Motor Show.
The third prototype of 1963 Fiat 2300 S Lausanne by Pininfarina. (Picture from: AllCarIndex)
On the occasion of the National Exhibition in Lausanne, the Pininfarina built a special car based on a Fiat 2300 S chassis, as the Italian coachbuilder’s homage to the Swiss Confederation and named "Lausanne". This unique copy, powered by a Fiat's 6-cylinder in-line engine, was exhibited at the 1964 Lausenne's National Exhibition.

4. 1964 Fiat 2300 S Coupé Speciale
This fourth model presented by Pininfarina at the 1964 Turin Motor Show consists of this 2-seater Coupé Speciale based on a Fiat 2300 S chassis. The car model has a front fascia that has applied a rounded, and sleek design line resembled the shark-shapes with two rounded large-sized headlights inside plastic-houses with a thin bumper underneat.

Besides that at the front also designed to obtain excellent wind penetration, descends towards the front with a gentle curve. At the side has a totally smooth section (and without chrome plating), while its interior is particularly refined. The rear part ends in a truncated tail in which the optical groups are housed.

5. 1965 Fiat 2300 S Coupé Speciale
This last or fifth model looks similar in design to the fourth model, but with different front and rear fascias. In the front, there's four headlights with rounded reflectors are installed together and flank a unique grille in a square shape which is also equipped with a thin bumper.

Then on the back it is also seen applying a slightly boxed sharp-angled shape with the taillight cluster narrowing downwards. While the rear bumper is no less unique, which is mounted like hanging on the back.
That's 5 (five) scarce concept cars built based on the Fiat 2300, and Fiat 2300 S by Pininfarina during 1962 to 1965, it is believed all of these concept cars are still around today and may still be driven through.
