I have some more pictures that I will load up on a different thread. I don't beleive it was a soft top GT. Unfortunately I dont have any pictures of that car.

I understand some car makers exploit various mkts, like the run of the Mill Fords, Nissan , VW etc. etc.
but I don't understand why specialist sports car makers want to enter the field of HGV's, busses and trucks like Porsche did with the ridiculous Cayen, and now it looks like Alfa are into the HGV/tractor mkt also with those two school run trucks. I just think it loses their credibility in the sports car mkt.
Maybe Scammel could produce a sleek sports car?

"Scammell Lorries Limited was a British manufacturer of trucks, particularly specialist and military off-highway vehicles, from 1921 to 1988."
Spot the tense. Scammel did not move with the times by producing what the market wanted. What percentage of the market for cars is for "sports cars"?

It was back in Sept 2010. A birthday treat from my very understanding wife! I have been meaning to post pictures but never seem to have the time.

They were tucked away in a 'restricted' area which had a unlocked door! . Well it would have been rude not to.......

The Cayenne is Porsche's most profitable car by a sizeable distance - nerve mind credibility without the contribution it makes Porsche would not have had the funds to develop their sports car range as they have.

It's also a really rather good car too.

Wasn't the Proteo the concept car the 916 GTV came from?

Earlier than that - the GTV was on sale in '95.

Interestingly, there's another Pininfarina concept from 1981 which seems to have passed on some of its DNA to the Proteo and 916 ... the Audi Quartz.

Indeed it is. On both scores.

The problem with Alfa is that, technically, it's likely to produce something rather compromised which won't match up to the promise if they can actually manage to style the thing reasonably. The Kamal concepts look a little dated, but still rather pretty,
