While Polestar is still busy teasing us with parts of a photo showing the rear end of its upcoming model, a fresh render provides us with what Volvo’s standalone performance brand should be bringing out on October 17.
Polestar has still to confirm what type of car it will be, with a two-door coupe being the most probable answer.
Vvmasterdrfan put together the available puzzle pieces and filled in the blanks, with his render showing a very S90-like rear end, complete with the trademark boomerang lights, dual exhausts and wide hips.
It almost looks exactly the same with the Volvo Concept Coupe that debuted back in 2013 and gained universal appraisal for its sexy looks. We wouldn’t kick it out of bed, that’s for sure.
The latest reports talk about a hybrid coupe with around 600hp, based on the upcoming S60 which is due next year. The hybrid powertrain will have a turbocharged and supercharged 2.0-liter petrol inline-four at its heart, much like the powertrain found in the Volvo XC90 T8. Power will be transmitted to all four wheels via an automatic transmission which should make the new Swedish coupe a monster off the line.
Only one week is left until Polestar lifts the veil off their first model, so stay tuned.
