Tesla may have been a pioneer as far as zero-emission sports cars are concerned, but it doesn’t mean that there won’t be any up-and-comers determined to give Tesla some much-needed competition.

And if Tesla is looking for a rival, they have found one in Steenstra GCM.
Founded by Cornelis Steenstra, a prominent auto designer and industry consultant, Steenstra is looking to dive in and take a piece out of the pie that Tesla has hogged for itself by releasing its very own zero-emission sports car.

While details surrounding this sports car, but rumors abound that the car is being billed as the first 200-mph sports car to be built in California. As the company continues to build its brand, Steenstra has nevertheless set its sight on bigger fishes than Tesla, namely the Ferraris and McLarens of the world.

Pretty ambitious if you ask us.

Then again, that seems to be how Steenstra is wired. In his press release, he said, "I grew up with a passion for transportation and motor racing, and have always felt that people should and could enjoy driving passionate performance automobiles while still retaining their responsibility toward the environment. These are desires that can very well be enjoyed together".

All things considered, the car is expected to be unveiled at the 2010 Pebble Beach Concourse d’ Elegance and will likewise be primed and ready for the road by 2013.
