Polestar Concept BST has a wild wing and serious potential

The front profile is unmistakably Polestar, thanks to those angular LED lights, but if you were to describe it to a sports car fanatic, imagine creating a hybrid baby of a Ferrari Purosangue and a Porsche Taycan. The standout feature is the wide wing, which sits high and bears the Polestar branding – one of the most brazen we’ve seen from a car brand to date. And to think it’s an electric roadster, well – it seems Polestar also wanted to dispel the myth that battery-powered cars don’t look cutting-edge enough. Frameless doors expose sharply angled glass, and it’s one of the few aspects of the Polestar Concept BST’s side profile that doesn’t look formulaic.

The top view, front fascia and rear styling are distinctly aggressive and refreshingly unique, though. Polestar is clearly aiming for a look that will appeal to the car enthusiast, the CEO who prefers fast cars but won’t dare to go for something as extravagant as a Pagani or a Koenigsegg speed demon.

Polestar isn’t revealing whether the Concept BST will ever go on sale or boasting about its performance numbers, but if ongoing trade tensions don’t hurt Polestar’s import-based business model in the U.S. and Europe, we could be looking at one of the most promising electric sports cars of the near future.
