|>>The light sports-car with style and perfomance<<|
Backstory: (the prequel here)
Walter Winthorpe is the wealthy owner of a successful car manufacturer, Winthorpe Motors, and the Whaler(V8 pony car) was an enormous success which set the standard for that market segment.
However, the oil crisis has taken a big dent on the sales for the segments Winthorpe Motors are normally used to. And to add insult to injury, there are these people who mock the big, loud and slow on the race track, cars that are associated with the Winthorpe brand. This new generation with their 911’s, Esprit’s, Miura’s, RX-7’s and even one by the name of Fairlady(who names a sports car Fairlady?!) outperforming and outstyling the Winthorpe’s.
“We need that market too, without its prestige(and revenue), our company’s future will not be as bright as now” said Mr.Winthorpe during the lastest board meeting. “Do something about this, quick!” he added and the meeting was over.
One of the more senior managers, remebered still how the company fortunes changed in 1970, when the Whaler was released. The same needed to happen now…
