I don’t know how close it came to production, but GMC thought hard enough about a second-generation Typhoon that it put this concept together in 1998. The drivetrain details may have been lost to time, but I do know that we’d all be better off if this thing got built, no matter what’s under the hood.
Any good source for this photo? Seen this image float around before, and I still don’t believe it’s a Typhoon concept.
The biggest thing against this being a Typhoon concept is that it says “Jimmy” on the side.
Not to mention:
- Wheels are completely non-OEM looking even for concept cars at the time. Looks like off the shelf mini-truck wheels of a day.
- Headlights are Envoy headlights.
- Brake rotors are cross drilled when even the Corvette didn’t have cross drilled rotors.
Looks more like someone’s project that made it into a truck mag back in the day but I can’t track it down...
