Renault’s future performance models
There’s not a secret anymore that Renault is working on a future sports car in an attempt to bring back the "Renaultsport" name. The company will show the production version of the Laguna Coupe Concept this summer, and that will be at Paris along with the new Megane hatchback.
Eventually there will be a four-wheel steer version of the Coupe, but a Renaultsport version is unlikely, says Pelata. Why? Because to built it you will need a "400bhp and that’s not Renault. "
Renaultsport will unveil several cars, but not before 2010 or 2011. They will be based on three key criteria. ‘They should not be expensive or exclusive, they should be a lot of fun and not cars that swallow a lot of gas.’
