The Valmet Eva Concept: Vroom Vroom!

Valmet Eva conceptSo this is the new concept by Valmet Automotive.  It is called the Eva, and this is actually the very first picture of the car.  You guys can thank me with gifts of cash!

But seriously, Valmet Automotive is a supplier operating out of Finland, and whether you know it or not, you are most likely already familiar with them, seeing as how we all have them to think for the Porsche Cayman models and the Porsche Boxster models we know and love. In fact, the supplier will also be partnering up to both manufacture and engineer the upcoming Fisker Karma.

But enough about the supplier, let’s talk about the concept itself. I am sort of at a loss with the Eva. On the one hand, it looks pretty groovy, pretty edgy, very much a car of the future. On the other hand, it strikes me as … kind of boring.
