Nice looking older car, but why on earth would anyone restart another carmaker (especially one that's not particularly memorable) from scratch, when the established manufacturers are being plagued with manufacturing overcapacity, mature markets and market shares that only grow at the expense of each other. Unless this is intended to be a highly focused specialty manufacturer, I see this guy doing a like a million of its predecessors: Showing an interesting concept at geneva (a show that is infamous for these type of manufacturers), getting a lot of press and never be heard from again.
