Concept in Fashion: Saab Fashionista
While there's no guarantee that this car will ever go into production, the composite renderings have us hoping we'll see this baby on the showroom floor someday soon. The Saab Fashionista is a concept car designed by French car design student, Mayeul Walser. Based on the designs of high fashion designers Karl Lagerfield and Chanel mixed with futuristic sci-fi tech, the 2-door, 4-seater sports coupe is definitely a looker. The While the sleek, futuristic exterior is definitely intriguing, what's under the hood isn't too shabby either.
Based on the designs of the Chevrolet Volt, the Fashionista is nearly identical in dimensions. The could have the same extended range electric powertrain, but Walser intends for his concept to be equipped with a hybrid powertrain with a 6-cylinder engine.
While it remains to be seen if this concept will become more than frenzied imaginings of a talented design student, the Fashionista is an interesting glimpse into the future of automobile may hold.
