New beginning

Hello, everyone.  It’s been a while. This is my long-absent blog post. Starting this month, I would like to tell you about the making story of my new super car which is from my own ideas in this blog.

When I first thought about making a supercar, I was in my mid-teens. Before that, I liked radical things such as a jet fighter, a submarine, a warship, a tank and so on. One day when I was in elementary school, my mother took me to the hospital as I caught a cold.  She praised me for my patience because I did not cry when I was injected and then she asked me what I wanted for the reward. So I asked her to get a specialized magazine for aerophile called “Koku-jouhou”, at the bookstore.  I was absorbed in reading that book, not a picture book nor a cartoon in spite of the elementary school boy.  As for a car at that time, sports cars are very few like Porche.  I felt the design was like a toy and it was not enough for me.  I was often asked as an adult, if I had liked cars since my childhood.  Actually, cars were not enough to satisfy me when I was a child.  I rather liked a jet flighter.

Such a child opened his eyes when he met artistic car designs of “Giugiaro” and “Gandini”. I was inspired by them and then I was going to devote myself to creating my new design form.

Since then, for more than half a century, I have been continuously aiming at making ultimate sports car design until now.  Though I tried some other things because of various environmental changes or offers, basically I have continuously creating innovative car design.  When I look back now, I am impressed by having kept my motivation these half-century.

Looking ahead to coming 20 years, I have been thinking and designing more powerful and more beautiful electric super car powered by clean energy these several years. In the future post, I would like to show you the related draft sketch. I would be happy if you enjoy those pictures.
