Cruising Instagram...











I saw a few things I never knew existed this week on Instagram.
Like:

- A wagon version of the amasing Aston Martin Lagonda. (probably a one off model)
- A 1958 Michelotti design for a new BMW.
- Early design probosal for the amazing Toyota Sera from 1990.
- Designs for a coupe version of the Renault 30. The 30 was popular in Europe and gave birth to the cheaper 20 model. (4 cylinder instead of V6 in the 30). But a coupe was never produced.
- A fantastic looking 1963 Studebecker Sceptre, by Brooks Stevens. Which makes you wonder if it would have been able to save the brand if produced...
- And a poor old US specs Renault 12 wagon. Which has to be one of the rarest car you could find in the US these days.

Did Micheloti sell that design to VW after BMW rejected it? Because that looks a lot like the mid-1960s Type 4 Karmann Ghia.

There's a good reason for that.
