Seems like I've stirred up quite a bit of interest. Well,
I stuck my business card on his/her windshield (I'm pretty
sure he/she doesn't work at Pixar, but then we've had quite
a few new hires recently) with a note mentioning The List :-),
prefaced with "Gorgeous car!".
More about the car. It's fire-engine, arrest-me red. Didn't
notice any Porsche/Brembo red calipers. Aftermarket steering
wheel with no airbag and "Veloce" (?) printed on it. 16"
five-spoked alloys -- the kind which has lots of bolt-heads
(fake?) visible. Front headlight washers (two for each side).
So .. lack of airbag suggests 1990 or earlier. My guess
agrees with the majority: wannabe who got lucky with the
badges (which look *very* authentic, by the way).
Some of you folks guessed the RS2 Avant. I know about that
one (and this obviously isn't it). In fact, it was the
only one I knew about with the RS2 label. I thought the
only hot-rod coupe was the S2.
Will keep the list posted if something transpires!
