^ It's a Puma GTE, Brazilian made sports car with a VW flat four air cooled engine. The one pictured is a pre-77 car with the split bumpers. In 1977 the bumpers were integrated into the fiberglass.

My uncle worked for the factory back in the 70s, and they even had a prototype with a Puma-made flat six engine, which was done by fabricating engine halves from VW molds, and fabricating a new crankshaft. The flat 6 went like stink, but had problems with the cases cracking. Never made it to production.

Very interesting, thanks. Would never have guessed.

Obviously rear-engined and the front end looked somewhat Dino-ish, so I figured it was Italian, but nothing came up in my searches.

Also assuming the production numbers on Wikipedia are correct, that is one very rare car.

É por que nunca venderam Saab no Brasil... um amigo meu que mora no Rio é vidrado por VW me perguntou como é um Saab. Eu disse "como Volkswagen, mas melhor!"

Sou nascido e criado no Rio, moro nos EUA desde 1993. Sou soldado Americano desde 98, e agora estou no exército, morando na Alemanha. Dirijo Saab desde 2010.
