The "guess-what-car" game 2

Nein, also that had more different bodies. The car you need to guess was never anything other than a 5-door hatchback specifically, and no, other bodies under different names didn’t exist either.

Citroen BX?

Hint the Third: prototype, never entered production (neither did anything derived from it)

Triumph SD2 concept?

No, but that sounds interesting, thanks for mentioning it

Also, hint 4ever: from a country whose car industry isn’t widely known around the world (so it’s not French, German, American, Japanese etc.)

FSO WARS?

Hah, I knew that the country hint will make it much easier :smile: Congrats, that’s it - FSO’s hope for the future, for which they had no money. It could be something like the Škoda Favorit, but I guess FSO would be doomed anyway. Oh, and I hope they’d come up with a different name for export - “Wars” (read “vars”) is the legendary founder of Warsaw (in the most popular, I think, version of the legend, together with Sawa).


That bottom car is obviously not Wars, but that’s just the best picture of a blue one I’ve found (red and white examples are far more known).

Why the Mazda picture, was this vehicle related to the 323 in any way?

Not at all, just looks similar I guess.

BTW, now I’ve realised… the photos of both the Wars and the 323 are part of the same picture, that I just didn’t bother to cut for posting here :smile: I’ve found it like that, didn’t find a separate photo of the blue Wars (or rather a shell of the blue Wars).
