Skoda has published a teaser on Scala … now it’s a roadster

March 20, 2020 0 By autotimesnews

The press service of the Czech automaker has published images of the Scala hatchback, which has now adopted the roadster body type. The image was created for entertainment purposes by students of the company.

Today, Skoda showed the world what kind of car the students of the vocational school of the company created. It is worth noting that this is the seventh student project. Radically different from last year’s pickup, which was called Mountiaq and was created on the basis of the seven-seat Kodiaq crossover, the new one-time car is based on the Scala hatchback. As you can see from the presented teaser, it has undergone many changes, since the rear doors and seats disappeared, as did the roof. This is because the main idea was to turn the five-door hatchback into a more attractive roadster – the car is now called the Skoda Scala Spider.

 20 students worked on the Scala Spider for several months to “chop off” the roof of the car and upgrade its rear to create a smoother body structure, complete with a pair of humps behind the seats, which are somewhat similar to those in the Porsche 911 Speedster.

You will also notice a centrally mounted hex outlet and two-tone alloy wheels borrowed from the high-performance Octavia RS. Another sketch shows that the interior will be largely transferred from the original hatchback, with a red line on the steering wheel, suggesting that the interior will be borrowed from a high-quality Monte Carlo configuration.

 In June, the open-top version of the Skoda Scala hatchback will be shown. It will be interesting to see if the vocational school students in Mladá Boleslav created a convertible top for a roadster or a one-time project car does not have a roof at all. It is worth noting that students received advice and feedback from the company’s current design department, including from Oliver Stephanie, head of Skoda Design.
