Cars you didn't know existed until very recently.

I can't decide if I like it. 

I love 205s, and they have incorporated the little grey grill element from the 3 door at the base of the window. 

Some earlier prototypes were simpler.

But I think they are a bit bland.

I also found a prototype 309 break, which I like. 8080825105_554e22a77a_o.jpg.b64bae7ab87a4385fafc39b118e2ebcc.jpg

Imagine that in gunmetal grey and Gti spec. 

Or more likely for us, with a mismatched door, painted steels and belching chip scented smoke out the back.

Thanks, I never knew that. 

I only found out myself recently, can't remember if it was on here or elsewhere.  Quite a clever bit of cost saving design really, the 309 looks a lot bigger than the 205 and yet the doors don't look too small.

What was not cost saving was the warranty claims on leaking boot on the mk1 309 due to bonding the metal sill onto the frameless glass, argument was Porsche can do it.

No, neither did I. But now I do I don't think I'll forget. That's the sort of useless information that sticks in my mind whilst the stuff I actually need just falls straight back out again.

Toyota FJ Cruiser, in the unlikely event anyone is interested.

Funnily enough I saw one today in Brighton and I'm not sure if I put it in this thread a couple of years ago when I saw one at Ardingly antiques fair. Anyway I think they look great in a strange way!
