What car is this?
« on: August 10, 2020, 11:53:49 am »
It’s so familiar, I just can’t place it, and it’s driving me crazy. Sorry for the photo of a television. I know I’ve seen those headlights before.



The red car is the one I’m interested in, though if you want to ID the one behind it, that’s fine too.

Tesla Roadster?

No, that looks different. More like an Elise. I think this might even pre-date the Tesla Roadster; this episode aired in 2007, so it was probably filmed in 2006.

Wait, is it an NSX with a convertible conversion?

Yes! That’s exactly what it is.

No wonder I couldn’t place it. The convertible conversion threw me off.
