Weismann is gearing up for expansion. The German niche sportscar maker is preparing to enter the US market by the end of the decade, increasing production threefold and possibly adding additional engine options.

Featuring curvaceous retro styling reminiscent of classic British sportscars, the Weismann Roadster and Weismann GT employ BMW-sourced engines coupled with lightweight chassis to offer exceptional performance. The 2600-pound Roadster is available with a choice of Bavarian in-line six engines, at either 231 hp from 3 liters or the previous-generation M3's 3.2-liter unit pumping out 343 horses, while the larger GT is motivated by BMW's 4.8-liter 367-hp V8. Weismann insists that their cars are designed to accommodate the entire range of Beemer powerplants, including the M5's V10, a V12 or even a diesel.

Weismann also hopes to cut down on customer waiting times, as orders for the Roadster currently take six months to fill, or 18 months for the GT.

Given the beauty and performance offered by the small German firm, we think they'll find many eager American customers willing to pony up for their unique creations.

      "4. Those are very good looking cars, even if they do look a little bit like a man's... err well you get the idea.

      I'd like to see some Car And Driver numbers"

      Weismann's cars are reminiscent of the classic BMWs of the 1930s and '50s. I wish that BMW pursued this styling trend instead of the stale one it has stuck with since the 1960s. The Weismann cars harken back to the days of old, while offering enough of a modernized touch to prevent it from being too retro. I like these cars much more than the British Morgans.

      Absolutely fantastic cars. The GT is one of my favorite car designs of all time.

      This is exactly what the new Jaguar XK should have looked liked.

      Come on... if that car (GT or Roadster - take your pick) is not the perfect combination of classic looks and engineering, I just don't know what is... if you cover the headlights with glass, I bet you get a call from Jag's lawyers... it's an XK150 C-Type with German electronics... how you gonna beat that?

      CRANK THIS...

      I don't care for the fender flares, looks like an afterthought. The body would be just as beautiful without them. More so.

      I would think this is extra cool too. If I was 15. Penis envy. And the driver will too look like a dick.
