    okay, now that i figured out how to attach pictures (under file attachments... imagine that! hahaha&#33, i've been sitting on this one for a while. i knew another fiero couldn't be front-engined, so i had my way with the kappa platform. couldn't decently remove the front engine, so pretend it's not there! either that or the car is an abbreviated I8!

    that would wreak hell on ones pocket book it you wanted to do mods though, not to mention the complexity...and reliability issues, if it's a fiero people will be looking for reliability stuff and two engines will have twice as many things to go wrong....nice idea just not as a fiero

    hmm... just had a thought that was inspired by this idea. Maybe I shouldn't have had it but.... a Reatta based on the Kappa?

    lol thanks for the confirmation. I guess it popped in my head when I saw one over in the grocery store lot near me. I remember that it was originally an acclaimed car, but I didn't follow it through its life. What happened down the road?

    i think they priced it too high, and didn't have the power the looks suggested. i thought it was a great step in the right direction... a few more reatta-like buicks woulda headed off the likes of lexus and infiniti. i still think the reatta is a gorgeous looking car. shows its age for sure, but the coupe has some beautiful, simple lines. the wrap-around of the rear window is especially well-executed.
