Can anyone name this car?

Me and my mate came across this and he quite likes it but doesn't know what it is (haha he is doing transport design and all)

i think it's an American car from the 70's or 80's.

But agree with H - Susan is about as close to naming it as i'm going to get.

Looks like a Ferrari Dino or a kit car copy thereof. Probably the latter. Maybe a Karma.

Looks like a Karma to me, iirc based on a VW beetle chassis, just look at the front wheel offset in comparison with the real thing in Bones615's post.

Yep, all the other VWs in the picture are probably a bit of a clue ;)
