Mystery Car

Kamil Kaluski September 21, 2018 Mystery Car 12 Comments

In school, teachers would tell me “come to me with questions”. At first it was a bit challenging but then I learned what and how to ask. All that changed when I got a real job. My bosses would say “don’t come to with questions, come to me with solutions”. Effing upper management, they just want you to do their job for them. 

But this, my dear readers, is where my disappointment in you comes. Last week you people did not try very hard. You didn’t ask many questions. And you sure as hell did not come to me with many solutions. And that’s sad because the pictured vehicle, especially in its performance SVR trim, is rather common in areas where the children of the really affluent study. No, the pricey carbonfiber trim does not add any lightness to this 5000-pound vehicle. 

In my disappointment with you people, I have decided to give you something super easy today. To make it even easier I am including two pictures of the damn mystery car. Please try. Ask some question. Offer me some solutions. Provide the make and model and you’ll win everyone’s admiration. 

I took some pictures of this white Range Rover Sport SVR at a local press event but for the life of me I can’t find them. Cool rig, this Range Rover Sport SVR. The exhaust sounds great, has some nifty interior bits, but the exterior carbonfiber trim is a bit much. But then again, a Range Rover was never about being understated. It’s a great performance rig but it has two problems: awful infotainment system and the fact that the Grand Cherokee Trackhawk exists.

    Ah, that explains it. I teach at a public university.

      I think it is a good sign that we didn’t think of a performance SUV. Like not getting a riff from a Celine Dion song or something.

      Is this week’s an Italian car?

    first thought was “hmm, neo-retro, but I’v never seen a Nissan Figaro in anything but that icy green color.

    Fiat 500?

      Scratch that. No panel joints.

    A first generation Mazda MX-5 ?

    NA Miata. i have the same speaker grille-on-tan in my ’94, so i’ll say it’s a 1.8.

    • Mr.Roadrage

      Is a Miata not the same thing as an MX-5?

  • HuntRhymesWith

    I’m late to the party, but I’m going to say 1.6L NA Miata (so, 1989-1993). The left picture is the front driver’s side turn signal and the right picture is the door speaker, looks aftermarket though. If it’s the tweeter on the upper part of the door panel, it’s probably a 1.6 because all the 1.8s I’ve seen and owned have the upper dash and tops of the door cards in black (exception: 1994 BRG). Another point for it being an earlier car is that they were originally only offered in red, white and blue, later expanding to more colors.

        That doesn’t look like a 4.0 Cherokee.
