During a special Electric Vehicle Dutch Business Breakfast on June 17 at the Royal Dutch Consulate in downtown San Francisco, Cor Steenstra presented Steenstra GCM, the new American company which aims to produce high-end zero emission sports cars. During the presentation Steenstra also unveiled the latest guise of the Styletto, an electrically powered super sports car squarely aimed at the likes of Ferrari and Lamborghini.
Since first introduced in September 2009, the Styletto underwent extensive engineering and aerodynamic research, which clearly influenced the design to become more homogeneous, sleek and dynamic. The attendees, a distinct selection of representatives for venture capital companies, investors, lawyers and bankers, were clearly impressed by both the design of the Styletto, as well as by Steenstra’s timely concept for this company.
With the current oil disaster in the Gulf Coast, it is ever more apparent that the United States should no longer be as dependent of fossil fuels as it has been, if it wants to retain a livable environment for future generations, a point emphasized by Steenstra in his personal motivation for starting this capital undertaking.
In the video above you will hear Steenstra’s speech accompanying his Powerpoint presentation.
