2016 Thai sports car teased anew with new rendering

Following the release of a teaser image of an upcoming sports car from Thailand, Aeterno Motors, the company that will soon be unveiling it next year, released a new teaser image of their project to prove that they are indeed serious about it.

Called the Condico (to settle a discussion or argument in Latin), the sports car has a radical exterior design that appears to have a short wheelbase construction and a mid-engine layout. Exact details about the car's design and powertrain remain scarce though in review, the Aeterno Condico was designed by Jennarong Muengtaweepongsa, a 15-year old digital artist and the co-founder of Aeterno Motors.

Slated to be launched and to go on sale next year, the 'mid-engined premium sports car' will reportedly rival the Porsche 911 in terms of performance.

Aeterno Motors aims to change the view of upstart companies that are able to produce outrageous cars but fail to stay afloat.

“You hear about new startup car companies on the news daily, most become vaporware, or if they come true, they're usually never really impressive, bring nothing new to the table, occupy a segment with no market, or no one knows about it, but most are just plain badly designed or made. Well we’re here to change that,” said Aeterno.
