The Dutch company Savage Rivale launched an exciting super sports car in 2011 with the road yacht GTS Corvette-Based presented. The road yacht caused a sensation, in particular, with its four opposing hinged doors that open upwards. However, the project has not really picked up speed since then. Now an electric drive is to bring the breakthrough.
According to Savage Rivale, the GTS is due to make its debut at the Paris Motor Show as GLM G4 at the beginning of October - a purely electric variant whose drive technology comes from the Japanese company GLM. GLM is a constant in the EV market. For some years now, the company in Kyoto has been producing the 225 kW / 305 hp battery-electric sports roadster Tommy Kara ZZ. This is where a comparison with Tesla comes in, because like the Americans once, GLM has ventured into the e-mobility business with a roadster. And like Tesla once, the Japanese now want to add a sporty, luxurious four-seater to their portfolio.
According to Savage Rivale, who wants to drive the development of the conventionally powered road yacht at the same time, the market for purely electric powered super sports cars should offer exciting growth opportunities. By the way, the Dutch are not alone with this idea. A number of other comparable projects have been initiated recently. Whether Faraday Future, NextEV, BAIC or McLaren and Porsche - several new and established players have announced the construction of emission-free cars for the near future. (Mario Hommen / SP-X)
