Porsche 356? That window near the fuel filler is throwing me off, though.

PS: How typical of you Suhaas

Close? That 1960-61 Carrera GTL assembled by Abarth (who commissioned Zagato to work on those slick aluminum panels their specialty in that era) and allegedly designed by Franco Scaglione (though I cant quite see it) was just a streamlined 356B after all.

Thus, Id say the answer was bang on target, even if it lacked detail.

Was looking for the 'detail'. This is, after all, not a regular 356

You're bang-on target, I'd say.

ID: 930 is a Guangzhou Trumpchi 2.0 by Guangzhou Auto Company of China. Its based on an Alfa Romeo 166 not a Honda Accord. Guangzhou does have rights to build car based on the American Accord, which we also get in India. Guangzhou Auto Company made this car after buying rights from Fiat for Alfa Romeo. It was initially offered with a 2L engine, though now I think its also offered with a smaller 1.8 L engine. This car is featured in Top Gear's latest episode 2 of Season 18. This is what Jeremy drives. The rear end of the car resembles a Hyundai Sonata. Some more pics of the same car:

Right but wrong - its based on the Alfa Romeo 166!!!

I agree, it would look like an Accord's long lost brother

Not seen the latest top gear episode!
