Sports cars have not played much of a role in Peugeot's history at all. This rear-wheel drive throwback 2-seat sports coupe probably wouldn't change that.
C H O P — This little 2 seat fastback sports car could add some much-needed street cred for the French brand if they were to ever return to the US domestic market. I tried to give it the feeling of the late, and lamented, Triumph GT6+, the MGB/GT and other small sports cars with tin tops, with the cabin set as far back as possible, literally hunching over the rear wheels.
When I was growing up, there were only two car dealers in my town, a Chevy/Pontiac dealer and a Peugeot dealer. There were more Peugeots driving around my area than any other imported car, 403s, 404s, 504s, 505s, even the occasional small 304 and large 604 towards the end. The 404 wagon was THE car to have in the tony sections of town. I would love to see the French come back to the states with Citröen, Renault and Peugeot models.
