A Chevrolet Beat prototype was recently photographed on the grounds of New York's Rochester Institute of Technology. It was heavily camoflaged -- but that didn't fool the folks at AutoBlog. The Chevy Beat was one of a trio of concepts Chevy showed at the 2007 New York Auto Show. According to Bob Lutz, the Beat will go into production in 2009. The Beat won't be coming to the U.S. until it meets federal crash-test standards, so we won't see it until at least 2012.
The Beat was first shown in MINUTIA, Issue 16, Number 1 (2007).
