Chinese traffic jams are great equalizers: They slow down all cars (except black A6 with flashing lights and a police escort.) Our reader and commenter Daveinchina spotted this car with an odd paintjob on the Hukun Expressway in Songjiang, on the outskirts of Shanghai.
Dave thinks it’s a “new Chevy.” A few email later, he says “I think it’s a Chevy but I really don’t know what it is.” I don’t blame him.
With, for instance, SAIC’s Roewe 950 built on the platform of the Buick Lacrosse, which is rooted in the Opel Insignia, it takes a DNA test to know what is what these days.
Reader Macha says the car is a QOROS, the mystery car company that is a 50:50 joint venture between Chery and Israel Corporation (formerly Quantum LLC) and that has a very German management.
See a prototype? Shoot it. Send it.
