The Targa Evo concept is a creation of Macedonian designer Dejan Hristov, who studied at the School of Arts in Skopje. The concept was developed using Adobe Photoshop and a lot of skill.

The Targa Evo concept was designed as a replacement for the Pontiac Solstice, because Hristov thought, quite rightly, that although Pontiac took the Solstice with it to the grave, that doesn't mean GM shouldn't have another lightweight two-seat roadster for the US market.

The styling of the 'Pontiac' Targa Evo was inspired by the neat, sharp lines of most contemporary vehicles, and also by the athletic shapes of predatory animals. The front grille for example is designed to somewhat emulate the shape of a lion's mouth, with the contours of the hood representing the nostrils. The taught, sinewy lines connecting the front and rear wheel arches give the car a purposeful, muscular appearance.

The Targa Evo concept features an electrically-operated retracting roof panel which slides neatly behind the seats when in the down position. To reduce weight and keep the center of gravity lower, the roof panel would be made of carbon-fiber.

Hristov's Targa Evo concept is slightly longer than the Solstice at 175 inches (4.45m). That means it has the extra room for larger engine options. The proposed engine range could include the V6 and V8s from the Camaro.

Sadly, despite the Targa Evo's good looks and clever design, it's not an official GM concept, that means the chance of seeing it out on the roads is zero.
