The wait is almost over guys and gals! We only have one week left before the July 27th release of the Polaris Slingshot! The last video just went live about 10 minutes ago and it offers the best view of the Slingshot that we have had yet!

We get a really good look at the front end of this thing with the photos above, and it looks straight wicked! It looks like we are going to see a quartet of running lights up front. Two in the center and then a pair of lights on the wings of this stingray shaped road ripper. The two that are front and center are placed in such a way that we are led to believe that this thing is having to meet some guidelines that get it through the DOT. Motorcycle classification?

Another peek at those rears that are straight out of TRON.

We get a true sense of how low this thing really sits with these photos. Couple that with that AGGRESSIVE front end, and I think that this thing is going to have some impressive street presence.

Polaris is killing me with these videos! I hate being teased with something that I have been waiting for months and months and months... Ugh!

With the image just above, we can see the body lines in the hood, and boy oh boy, this thing looks aggressive! Some of the initial drawings looked like what a 10 year old boy would have scratched into his book cover while he was sitting, bored, in school. I wondered if those exotic lines would hit the final production model, or be diluted like so many cars and trucks are in their journey from designer's drafting table, to the production line. Polaris delivers with some hood lines that are impressive to say the least.

The front wheel arches look like a set of wings out there that flank you while you "surf that pavement." Those lines plummet towards a center line that carries from front to back that makes it almost look like a jazz riff on a rally stripe. You have angular lines all over the place! Looks like something out of TRON!

If you take a peek into what we can see in the dash, it is preeeeettttyyyy BASIC. The center console is devoid of any sort of electronics, and houses what looks like a map pocket, or a little cubby-like cavity for your gloves. BUUUUT! I will say this... In the other teaser images like the one that we showed you a few weeks ago, there is a little more going on in the red model.

Is it possible that the gray model is a test mule that they used to get these testimonials, or is it possible that they will come to market with a couple of different trim levels!? In their UTV offering, they offer a few different trim levels! The red Slingshot looks like the entire center console is different. Will we have the option for some...

We have another 11 seconds of Slingshot Teaser Video! Not a lot of new information, we were able to grab some screen shots that will help to flesh out the look of this vehicle.

[​IMG]

If you look really closely, you will see that the gauge has an icon for all sorts of awesome driver aids. I see icons for Traction Control, Stability Control, and more importantly, "Traction Control OFF" and "Stability Control OFF!" This little rocket might just be a lot of run to drive. With these two driver aids, I can only assume that the Slingshot will have enough power that it could get you into trouble if you are not on top of your game.

Looking at the height of the seat to the road, this thing is going to have the seat of your pants getting warm from the asphalt passing under you at a high rate of speed.

[​IMG]

The front wheels and tires look to be high quality, road ready tires that leads me to think that this monster is going to mean business and have some serious road-going clout.

The seats don't look exactly comfortable, but I will hold my tongue until I actually get my posterior in the driver's seat. The hoops behind the seats look to be beefy enough to inspire a bit of confidence in the safety of the Slingshot. It reminds me of the hoops...

There are many of us that have been watching this potential project for a really long time. For over a year, we have thought that Polaris has had something up their sleeves, and today is the first day where have sweet sweet validation! The video above proves that Polaris does indeed have something ready for launch on the 27th of July!

From what we can tell, and what has been rumored, the Polaris Slingshot is a street legal machine that has an open top and apparently no doors. The Slingshot, from what we can tell from the Patent Drawings and Spy Shots, is a 3-wheeled car that has two wheels up front and one in the rear. We are not 100% sure if it is a front wheel drive car, or rear just yet.

The details are a little light, but I can tell you from the video and these screen caps is this: Polaris is ALL IN on this new product, and they have abandoned the CVT in favor of a manual shift transmission... I say that they are "All In" due to the fact that you can spy in the video that they will likely have a full line of Slingshot Branded outerwear based on the fact that the driver is wearing gloves. This leads me to believe that the slingshot is, as rumored, open topped with no roof available!

[​IMG]

Also, you see the driver is swapping cogs with his right hand instead of the foot down and go of a CVT transmission in virtually their full line of vehicles. An interesting departure for sure! I for one and excited to think that they have three pedals on the floor and a shifter for your right hand!

[​IMG]

The next video is slated to release on July 7th, and subsequent videos all the way up to the full release on the 27th of July! It might just be a second Independence day for many of us!
