Here's a little trivia for you:
What are ALL the cars (make and model), available in the U.S., that are still in production in 2010, that...

1. comes in yellow paint, and black stripe(s) (factory option, not after-market)

2. offers suede as an interior upholstery option

3. is a convertible

4. has been in production (even if by another name) since 1987

Pretty sure the 200 can't be had with yellow paint and black stripes... at least I hope not!

I think they are definitely an exotic, or near exotic like a Porsche.

Let's work on requirement 1 first, then we'll eliminate using requirement 2...

Comes in yellow paint (not sure about factory black stripes on these)...
Ford Mustang (no name change since 1987)
Chevy Camaro (no name change since 1987)
Chevy Corvette (no name change since 1987)
Dodge Challenger (no name change since 1987)
Dodge Charger (no name change since 1987)
Porsche 911 (yellow paint with black stripe only offered in GT2/3?)
Ferrari 612 (predecessors being, in reverse chronological order up to 1987: 456M, 456, 412)
Ferrari 456 Italia (predecessors being, in reverse chronological order up to 1987: 360, 348, 328)
Ferarri F430 (predecessors being, in reverse chronological order up to 1987: F355, GTB/GTS Turbo)
Lamborghini Gallardo (predecessors being, in reverse chronological order up to 1987: Jalpa)
Lamborghini Murcielago (predecessors being, in reverse chronological order up to 1987: Diablo, Countach)

Anything else to add?

Are we talking about a Jeep Wrangler? Cause they changed the name to Wrangler in 1987, its continious production, its a convertible, and four door models are known as the Wrangler Unlimited. So that kind of fills that vague part of question 4 with it being produced under a "different" name.

Although I don't think that's it because I tried to spec out a yellow one with black stripes on the Jeep site. Maybe yellow was available in 2010 and discontinued for 2011??? Also doubt you can get a Jeep with stainable suede upholstery.


Offically voting for Lambo Countach/Diablo/Murcelagio. I know all of them were avaliable as a targa/convertible or a hardtop. Current model does have suede upholstery and is avaliable with yellow paint/black stripes.

Different name is fine... As long as it's in the same line of production. But I'm 100% sure Wranglers don't offer suede upholstery.

Also, If I am understanding correctly, it's not necessarily just one vehicle, but it's possible there are MORE than one than meet these criteria? (Since you said "ALL the cars...").

To be exact, you mean 'synthetic suede'. I dont know of any brand that still offers suede. Its interesting that synthetic suede has become so popular, but synthetic leather is still considered 'sub-par'.
