    Giant continental car manufacturers like Posh, BMW, Mercs often get copied some of their masterpiece by those China cars manufacturers. But what came across my eyes from some random searching was even our beloved national car that may not stand a chance to shine it's name worldwide, but still it was a target to some pro-clone China car manufacturer and it was called the "Lotus L3 1.6L" originated from Proton Persona.

    Behold the images below.... Too bad no pics from the engine bay:banghead:

    Because they don't know how to pronounce Perusahaan Otomobil National in China?
    For example if people ask them what does Proton stands for, they can't speak our languange :thefinger:

    As China got so many states, is not strange dat these cars only for sale there(remind yourself of China population) so low profile dat we might not "discover" them so directly.
