AVANTI

AVANTI

The only production car ever designed in Palm Springs, CA, the Studebaker Avanti. Industrial designer Raymond Loewy was hired by Studebaker to come up with something (over a three week time period) which would save the car-maker, and while the car didn't accomplish that mission, it's still with us today, having outlived its parent company by many decades.
