Robert Emslie March 6, 2015 Mystery Car 19 Comments


It is said that March comes in like a lion and exits like a lamb. I don’t know anything about that as I live in Southern California where our climate makes grilling either lamb or lion a year-round affair. One thing I do know is that no matter how dark the weather it’s always a bright idea to try and solve the weekly Mystery Car. If you think you have a clue as to the identity of the heavily cropped car or truck above, let us know – make and model – in the comments below.

    • I remember back in the mid 90s in Detroit, commuting up the NB Southfield freeway in bumper to bumper rush hour traffic in the midst of heavy snow and coming up on an NSX. Even then, when they were new, i was surprised that someone would daily drive one in those conditions.

    My vote is Noble M400

    • Rob Emslie

      And we have a winnah!

      • roguetoaster

        It could have just as easily been a different Noble or a Rossion. Don’t they all share the same front clamshell?

        can you post the full-size pic?

        • Rob Emslie

          What, like this?

          • Vansquish

            That’s definitely a GTO-3R (it doesn’t have the extended side scoops of the M400).

    AC cobra 289 mk 2

  • Richard Miller

    I believe it is a Cobra.

    Porsche 911… Im guessing 1990?

  • Vansquish

    I’m leaning towards saying that it’s a TVR V8S on 3-piece BBS alloys from a Jaguar.

    That said, I’m also tempted to say that it appears to be a Ginetta G4 or G12.

    I retract that. It looks to be a Noble M12 GTO-3R, with about 95% certainty.

      Well…it did have Sonata taillights…

    A Shelby 289 Cobra with the wrong wheels?
