Sure, it's missing it's VIN. And motor. And batteries. And the roof seems to have been chopped off the chassis...

... but I bet, knowing GM, that this car is deadass 50% Saturn underpinnings.

If someone wanted to make a serious run at winning lemons with an electric drivetrain, this seems like the place to start for maximum help from the judges...

Someone needs to make a Fiero out of that.

Calling that a shell feels generous, since they seem to have lopped most of the chassis off - think it will fit over some Miata subframes?

There's actually 10 bids on this thing, with someone willing to spend about $1200.

Interesting you mention that, there used to (mebbe still is?) a thread on Pennocks that highlighted the similarities betwixt the Fiero spaceframe and the EV1 spaceframe.

GM is known to recycle ideas/parts/engineering. Is this the follow-on to the 2nd Gen Fiero we never got?

Use a Bolt drivetrain and battery pack to keep it "all in the family"? Or piss everyone off and use a Tesla drivetrain? devil

Whelp, the Model 3's Synchronous AC motor is the most efficient...
