Who doesn't remember Vector Supercars and the original aerospace-inspired Vector domestic supercar? What about the W2, the W8, WX-3 and the swan song of the M12? Besides the Corvette, the Vector at most times during the '80s and early '90s was the only exotic car on the world market that was born and bred in the good old U.S. of A. Hardly any were ever sold and they remain rare pieces of our domestic auto history, but rumor that original Vector founder Gerald Wiegert is working on a new supercar have been hanging around the past few years. Whether or not that's true, we found these concept renderings of a Vector V8 Biturbo concept on a Romanian auto site and just had to share. They show off the angularity of the original Vectors in a thoroughly modern form, complete with scissor doors that feature the Vector's trademark below-the-beltline ancillary side windows. Who knows how much power this twin-turbo V8 makes or any other details about the rendered concept, but the fact these frames were even produced should tell Wiegert that there's definitely pent up interest for a Vector revival. If any one knows the artist who produced these renderings, drop us a line in the comments as we'd love to give credit where credit's due.

      Gorgeous piece of machinery. Looks like it's straight out of a sci-fi movie. It needs to be made.

      I doubt we'll ever see another Vector but if we did it would be awesome. I remember be in love with the original.

      Very nice. It'll be the day when Vectors' are re-released though. Personally I dont see it happening for another 60+ years when I'm to friggin old an blind to even dream of owning one though. They were WAAAAAYYYYY ahead of they're time in the 80's, dont expect them to NOT be ahead of they're time again this century.

      Rumors of a new Vector are not rumors! I met Mr. Wiegert in Long Beach in 2003. He admittedly stated that marketing is not his forte. I met with him about investing in other projects he was working on and had the priviledge of previewing a work in progress of the new Vector. The body was having the final touches of shaping done at the time. If anyone is interested in bringing back an American masterpiece....Get in touch!
