Callaway Vette Hatch Back.

I think I like it. I like it better than the regular one.

I couldn't decide until I saw the full side view. I'll take one.


Much better than those Eckler monstrosities of the 70's!

I doesn't have enough HP if it doesn't lose traction at 80mph...

I've still got a woody for a Hennessey Caddy CTS-V Sport Wagon.

I guess I am the only one that hates this? Of course the vette never did much for me anyway...

The price seems good too.....

It is an extremely nice job, but I wonder what fits in the rear space. Anyone find an interior shot?

The space provides room for two bottles of tequila, or two kilo's of coke, customers preference.
Depending on the option chosen, a fold down cup holder or mirror and razor are fitted to drop between the seats.

I'd doubt you're the only one. It's a like it or hate it thing.

I'm just a sucker for wagons, or in this case, slightly more utility.

Callaway plans to manufacture the body package providing an openable hatch that would result in a unique style and increased interior space, positioning the Corvette in the elite class of two door shooting brakes.
Yes. Might actually be enough room for a couple golf bags or a couple suitcases rather than just a duffle.

I haven't had any luck finding any interior pics.
