Here's the first car to come out of my own "company" (L.C), the Khamsin electric sport's car:

Nice..it reminds me of the Inca from the 1980s.
The what? :confused:


It looks a lot like that Hybrid sports car that was just in Motor Trend last month. The one that was based on the Manta or something from the '60s or '70s.

The Inca was a remarkable concept car, by Giugaro I believe, that got heavily modified into a gorgeous sleek one box sedan that ALMOST went into production as an Oldsmobile....to this day I have a big photo of it on my office wall. It was incredibly ahead of its time and would look awesome on the road now. I will Google it and see if there are pictures to be seen.

He's right, it was from Italdesign, Guigiaro's frim. Where he's wrong is that it's actually NOT gorgeous ;-)

Well, I'm not a fan anyway, but I do like your concept Ahmad, especially the nose and lights.

As I suspected, the ones I was thinking ofcame from Italdesign as well. OK, here's the one I was talking about...

The new one called Quaranta







The Origianal Manta Concept



And I couldn't find much on the Inca, but I found some...




The front end somewhat reminds me of that '90s Jaguar Super Car.

wow that is really close. Maybe youve seen it maybe not, there is a such thing as coincidence. Ive had it happen to me before in designs. Either way i like it, very sleek, not much room for us tall people except reclining the seats way back

Yeah, it must be coinidence. I was trying to produce a car that looked really futuristic and aerodynamic. It also had to be electric because of the electric car craze right now.

Thanks for reminding me about the Quaranta....love it! The big pic I have of the Inca on my office wall is a pure profile shot showing an ultra sleek, low nose/high butt, almost one-box configuration.....hard to believe it came out so long ago.

thats what i figured, i mean thats not a very popular car i never even knew it existed. but it fits your design idea too by being your own company/own style, i couldnt really see this fitting into any current companys styling unless it was a radical new design to change the face of the company
