In the chop from sedan to svelte pillarless coupe, my Prius proves once again that my chops have not been, nor ever will be recalled. Click pic to safely enlarge : )
C H O P — On a day with yet another runaway Prius story in the news, this Prius is what I refer to as a classic sedan-to-coupe chop. Starting off with the 2010 Prius, I lowered the roof, made it a 2 door with pillarless body construction. The roof is blacked out with a carbon-fiber/sunroof package, lowering the center of gravity somewhat. The quad exhausts utilize a new ActiveSound option for city/pedestrian situations. This allows the driver to select from several exhaust tones to bolster the external sound during electric-only operation, alerting sight-impaired pedestrians . I also added the dark argent rocker panel treatment, in an effort to lessen the height of the tall Prius sedan.
