Well i had to refer to my pops for this one. Told me it was "A british pos". When i pried him for a real answer he said it was a Gordon-something and that he had seen it in a magazine because it had a Chevy engine in it despite being british.

The Cookie "HINT" gave it away!  It is a Gordon-Keeble made in 1963 - 1967.

1963-1967 Gordon-Keeble
What Makes it Awesome: It's an English car designed by Giugraro, built by Bertone, and fitted with the 5.4-liter V-8 from a Corvette. It looks as sexy as any European GT from the day (in profile, at least) and was just as fast. It also had a turtle for a logo, which is kind of awesome.P

What Makes it Obscure: The Gordon-Keeble had a lot going for it, but a too-high price and supplier issues doomed the car to just 100 examples. You may never have heard of it, but now that you've seen it, you probably won't forget it.

It does look like a Porsche logo, but it is a british sports car from what I can tell from it being right hand drive and that grill looks very Austin esque.

I have a car to add to obscure car history challenge (when this challenge is complete or we give up on guessing) and do not mean to change the challenge just thought of this one.



I can give hints if needed
