The tail is quite nice and was hoping to search out a photo of the front. I buy your suggestion that it is an Alfa - this was an Alfa club day?

my dream car
'93/'94 Porsche 911 Turbo 3.6 (964)

(same one that was Will Smith's car in Bad Boys)
One of the last before the Porsche's started losing their truly distinctive body style.

My dream is an early model nine eleven. Silver. Red hides. Pie plate wheel covers.

Gray works too.

I had one of these pull up next to me on the road. Looked sweet in black. First time I have seen one on the road. There is no local Tesla dealer, or according to the website 'coming soon' to Orlando.
Tried to maneuver for it to be next to me at the light so could take a pic, but it turned off.

I swear I see at least 3 of those every day... Which I don't mind because they are good looking. I'd like to get behind the wheel of one.

Squashed the Bug, did they? The new Bugs have gotten huge- they look like they've visited McDonald's too many times.
