Some news we're happier to report than others, but the July announcement of Artega's bankruptcy left us particularly sad. In the Artega GT, the small German upstart had a fantastic-looking sportscar on its hands that seemed to blend the best elements from an Aston Martin
and a Porsche Cayman
. Unfortunately it wasn't meant to be, though. Whether with reason or without, we were optimistic that Artega might find new investors to jumpstart production again.
