Steenstra Styletto: the new zero emission supercar

Article by Christian A., on August 29, 2010

These are the first images of the zero emission super sports car called STYLETTO, brought to us by renowned international car designer Cornelis Steenstra.

Recognized to be the first American zero-emission super car, it offers a low slung, extremely aerodynamic body, gull-wing type doors and ample seating to properly accommodate 2 occupants in a space not normally found in these types of exotics.

Steenstra had designed for Volvo, Mercedes-Benz, and Mazda's European Studios. Before starting his independent consultancy Foresee Car Design, Inc., in California, he was Strategic Design Manager Europe for Hyundai/Kia in Germany.

Aside from his normal consultancy work for Porsche in Germany, Steenstra also executed numerous projects for OEM companies like Nissan, Hyundai/Kia, MG-Rover, Peugeot and Fisker. He was also involved with several start-up companies, including several "clean vehicle technology" companies.

Armed with this experience, Steenstra teamed up with a group of very experienced automotive industry professionals, and set out to develop a new range of vehicles that would represent the best in American automotive engineering and technology.

This range of vehicles, of which the STYLETTO is the first, is taking on the exclusive sports car market currently dominated by Ferrari, Lamborghini and Porsche, with passionate offerings that excel in design, engineering, build quality and are environmentally responsible, producing zero emissions.

Steenstra and his team are in negotiations with several investment firms for this venture. They are aiming to have drivable prototypes of the STYLETTO ready in time for the 2010 Pebble Beach Concourse d' Elegance. Limited series production of this first offering is scheduled to start in March 2013.
