Built in Germany by Funke and Will AG, the hand built Yes! Roadster is something of a mini-supercar. Introduced at the 2003 Frankfurt show, the Roadster shows off its 2006 mechanical systems upgrades at this year's Leipzig auto show.

Weighing it at less than 2,200 lb, the Yes! Roadster is bound to provide sparkling performance regardless of the powerplant, but the second-generation model takes no chances, sporting Audi's 3.2-liter V6 in either normally-aspirated or turbo versions. The turbo pumps out 355 hp and about 360 lb-ft of torque, good for 0-62 mph in 3.69 seconds. For the truly power hungry, Yes! plans an option kit for the turbo model to boost output by an additional 30 hp. The mid-engine Yes! Roadster drives the rear wheels through a six-speed box. Prices start at about $72,000.

Looking a bit like a cross between Toyota's last version of the MR2 and Audi's TT, the styling of Germany's answer to the Lotus lightweight performance theme may not appeal to everyone, but for a small sports car, performance always comes first, and the Yes! pocket rocket looks like it will certainly deliver.

More pics after the jump!

      Normally I dislike roadsters but this is GORGEOUS.

      Breath of fresh air and very appealing would love to hear from any owners of the New 3.2 Turbo.

      Nice looking, but did anyone else notice the rear wing on the California? plated car? Also the skycam shot. Photos are from two different cars.

      Looks cool, agree that I dont usually like little roadsters but this looks very cool. Better then the Elise.

      Are those triangular exhaust ports on the back (front?).

      Yeah, funky's the word. From the top, it reminded me of a new Beetle. But I won't be shelling out 72 grand for it.

      That back looks extremely similar to the front. Annoyingly so.
        • 7 Years Ago
        are you blind, have you ever seen a combination of headlights and front air intake grills at the rear of a car, to say they look similar is an insult to the famous designer of this car, in real life I can assure you there is no mistaking, only thing if you are behind one of these they certainly have a habit of disappearing into the distance fast.

      Yep, two cars. The Cali car (it's a bicentennial CA plate, by the bottom text,) has different rims, as well. I like those, though both fit well enough. I'm rather curious at the tail shot...one red brake light, one clear. Perhaps just a prototpe detail.
      Judging by the website, this may also have the now bordering-on-cliche suicide doors which used to make the likes of Lambos unique. Hard not to say it's got Japanese styling, too...that butt screams "I'm an Eclipse!" Overall reminds me a bit of the Sky, at a glance, more than the MR2. Ah well, they can't all be perfect, unique and cheap all together. They could do far worse with the design.

      Of course Heinrich just panned the Nissan Z, from which this car was heavily influenced, in a previous post.

      Gunnar - you're an automotive quack!
        • 7 Years Ago
        I agree, yeh Gunnar, where is your eye for style (leave it somewhere did you?) I would like to see you design and make a car, or have you already and won't show it!
      • 8 Years Ago
      Yes! Looks Funk-E. Those A-pillars look wobbly thin. There's a bit of Mitsubishi, Nissan Z, and BMW Z4 all wrapped up into that strange car.

        The A-Pillars are thicker than any other pillars I have ever seen on a roadster. I have to say that when this car is seen in real life it looks very unique, nothing like a 350Z or Z4, the YES! Turbo has a much more agressive stance
        suggesting it is more serious (which it is), especially when you drive one of these (I am a fan)
      • 8 Years Ago
      This will get into wrecks because other drivers won't be able to tell whether they're looking at the front or back.
        • 7 Years Ago
        Get Real Patrick, the headlights are always at the front on cars, you should know this, there is nothing to suggest that the front is actually the rear, I respect yopur opinion, but only after you can justify it, please do.
      • 8 Years Ago
      Oh yeah, and nice roadster.

      So the question is, this or a Boxter?
