A few months back at the Paris Motor Show, French automaker PGO was set to unveil its Hemera sportscar, though our scribes at the event came away empty handed. We're unclear as to whether or not the Hemera did indeed make its debut in The City of Lights, but it matters little now, as all the official details on the new car have finally surfaced. Powered by a 2.0-liter four cylinder engine from fellow French automaker Peugeot that's been tuned to run on compressed natural gas, the Hemera is reportedly capable of reaching the sprint to sixty in under 7 seconds thanks to its ultra light weight of just 980 kilograms (2,160 pounds). A total of 140 horsepower from the mid-mounted engine is funneled through a five-speed manual transmission, allowing for a top speed of 200 kilometers per hour (124 mph). We like the looks too, which seem to be an shooting-brake-style evolution of the classic Porsche Speedster that the automaker mimicked with its Cevennes roadster.
