Possible future Pioneer projects?
Check out these photos from the Pioneer Models web site. These are said to be creations from Pioneer USA (apparently Pioneer’s US distribution arm) that might (or might not) lead to future production models.
This one is described as a “phantom” current-model Camaro GT1 car that could possibly be built on the same chassis platform as one of the Pioneer tube-frame TransAm cars that are due out sometime next year.
This one is a “widebody” Chevy Lumina TransAm/IMSA GTO car that fits a Pioneer Mustang/Camaro chassis (and therefore would also fit a Scalextric TA Camaro chassis). This car is also a “phantom” but it could easily morph into an Oldsmobile Cutlass, which was raced extensively in TransAm/IMSA and was essentially the same car. It looks as though a lot of unorthodox thinking is being explored by Pioneer Models, and the results, no doubt, will be interesting.
