That's not a photoshop pic, that's an actual prototype spy pic taken by Rob (he works next door to Nissan's UK Research Centre).

If somebody out there can/would....

The "overflow" of Lawrence-Cabrios made me think... What would it look like if Rometsch decided to go with a trend in the car design-market... and actually build a Rometsch Lawrence Hatchback-type body variant??

You know....sort of 911, Buick Riviera, T3 Fastback...or many types of cars from this era... Just keeping the whole body and maybe windshield exactly as original....but just s totally different roof-line and door glass and engine lid... I think it would look great and very modern for 1957/58... Done in sort of the spirit of Der Wiger Coupe... all original and period correct.

1957 Rometsch Lawrence Hatchback Sport Coupe

Could anybody do such a photoshop?...just a straight sideview?

Re my post above..

I could really find any good pre-1960 inspirational cars... but here are some not-so-good "theme cars" for what I am after... It needs to be a sporty looking one...to take off some the the "kindness" the original Lawrence expresses...

How could I forget... Rometsch did build hatchbacks.. Although these are a little "pre-1955" in style... we need to be 1957/58-style for the "Lawrence Rometsch Hatchback Sport Coupe"...






Anybody up for the photoshop-challenge?

Quick one. This what you had in mind? This is perhaps more like what might have come out in 1961 or so.

That looks pretty cool! Would be a shame to modify a real Rometsch, but if you could make the whole thing...

Holey smokes!!! Fast and good....and free! I love pre67vw!

That looks great JD - very much what I had in mind... Could you try a version where the back corner of the rear side window curves the other way around as well? Like on the Hotschkins-car i posted a picture of?

Very cool! I realize it is very Volvo P1800-like also...which is not bad. I like it.

And how about some sort of air intake behind the rear side windows?

Thanks!

Here you go. I had a little more time on it this time, (not just my lunch break) so i fixed up the photo a little bit better. Rather than a big scoop, I added a chrome cover behind the side windows, in the style of the B pillar cover on the Lawrence Coupes. You could maybe angle the side windows in a little to open up the air flow, its more subtle than sticking a scoop on the outside.

Hi Rob,

Is that what you wanted to do with the car?
In that case I will reconsider if you can buy the car. Smile

Well...funny you should list this rear-end-damaged car as a possible donor. This rear-damage car is exactly the one that triggered my thought for such a project.

The picture of the damaged car shows #558 about 15 years ago when it came to Guido in Holland from Gabriel in California..

This picture shows #558 in the "sales ad" from Patrick today:

Glad you like it. I think it looks almost Italian style. It would be amazing if it got built.

Say, is 558 a smooth sided car, or does it have the Rometsch "tick"? Can´t really tell from those photos!

The 558 is a curved style car. My 561 is smooth style.
It would be nice to heck it, Al least than I can save all the NOS bodypanels that came with it:
