If you’re experiencing a little bit of déjà vu after looking at these photos, no need to worry because chances are you remember our post on the red Tong Jian S11 coupefrom the 2009 Shanghai Auto Show.
The news coming in from several automotive websites in China is that Jianghuai Automobile, more commonly known as JAC Motors, will present the S11 under its own nameplate at this month’s 2012 Auto China Show in Beijing.
The same sources show a set of allegedly scoop photos of the S11 in a yellow exterior finish that they claim to be the JAC model, even though the car does not sport any of the brand’s badges.
If true, then JAC Motors, which recently made headlines in the States for cloning the Ford F-150 pickup truck, may have come sealed some sort of deal with Tong Jian to build the coupe – that or it just “borrowed” the design…
The original Tong Jian S11 as well as the yellow example seen here, is a styling mash up of Ferrari, Lamborghini and Audi R8 design cues. The S11 is said to have been powered by an unspecified gasoline-electric hybrid powerplant.
