The prototype had a solid folding roof. It looked stunning with the roof open or closed, but you had zero trunk space with the top open, which is pretty typical for this type of drop top. I think I literally drooled a little when he pulled the cover off the car.

I am not a betting person, but if I were, I would bet that they had no more than 20 real firm orders. KA claims something close to 100, but I think many of those are insiders and refundable deposits.

I definitely did. Here are some shots I took at the initial unveiling at the Detroit Auto Show in 2009. It was the hit of the show and everybody wanted one! Notice the Tesla booth in the background of the third shot. All they were showing then was the original roadster.

That inferno red sunset still makes my wife weak at the knees when she sees pics of it!

Always loved the grill and wheels. I did discuss the Sunset with a KA rep and he said at the time they were looking to bring it to production, but with a soft top. I immediately said "dont do it" - I told him it was a bad idea when you look at all the hardtops like SL, California, BMWs, Volvo, etc...but he noted that trunk space was an issue and top down utility was a major discussion.

Posawatz sent that red sunset to VL during the "dark" days it is now repainted a different shade of red.

From 2009 video of the retractable hardtop opening closing

Is the red sunset the same? Beside the painting, the one you showed has a black interior

Yes Katzkin (a company that Lutz is an advisor to) did the interior. Same Sunset (there were only two built the black and red)
