French coachbuilder PGO makes two limited-edition "neo-retro" roadsters that are clearly inspired by early Porsches. Beautifully crafted, both the Speedster II and the Cevennes are powered by mid/transverse-mounted 2-liter four-cylinder engines, with four valves per cylinder and a modest output of 138 hp. That's good enough to power the PGOs from 0-100 kph in about 7 seconds.

PGO was established in 1998, and displayed a prototype of the Speedster at the Paris Motor Show in 2000, with the Cevennes model rolling out in 2005. For the French-literate out there, check out the PGO website - the rest of us can enjoy John Neff's photo gallery and PGO's studio shots after the jump.

Oh, in case you're wondering, the glittering Cevennes shown above is actually covered with Swarovski crystals...

      sorry my mistake in the previous post, this used to be the case but they seem to have gone back to the 138hp version for some reason

      I like the black one with the tan upholstery. I'll take 2. Where do I send the check?

      the cevenne has a 180hp version of the PSA 2.0 liter and the speedster II has the 138hp version.

      wonderful car, pitty they couldn't use something for the myriad of more competent 4 bangers out there, ie the toyota engine used by lotus.. or toyota :), or the vw 2.0 fsi, or 1.8 (ie the YES). I thought we reached the point where independent coach builders realized and could afford to provide their cars with significant motivation in the form of many powerful engines on the market, oh well...

      and yes there is more to a car then just speed, but given all the other independent coach builders have no issue sourcing 180+ hp 4 bangers, why should these people be the unique snowflakes in their use of anemic power plants?
