Way back when on the Bit-Tech forum, we used to play a game - identifying a car from a super cropped image. No cheating with reverse image searching, just figuring them out by the design cues.

The correct guesser each round gets to post the next car image, and the cycle repeats!

If a car isn't guessed after a few days, the poster can give hints or expand the cropped image as needed to keep the ball rolling.

I'll start first;

A few tips to playing;
Rename your image file to something else to ensure folks don't get the car from the image name
If your image is guessed correctly, post the original image and @mention the correct guesser

The headlight should be something Korean or Japanese, highly unlikely European or American.

Dude this is impossible
Considering back in the Bit-Tech days we had folks finding the answer from just the corner of an indicator... a headlight, grille and badge should be doable!

I do know the answer, but that would be cheating (insider trading lol). I'm all for that kind of guess-game though :D
Given you are from France, I now suspect it is an European made car. The logo in the front grille does look a bit like the Lancia logo.
I am not a car nut as you can tell.

I'm still over here going insane trying to identify the logo of the vehicle. Like, the logo is literally right there and I don't know what it is lol.

Hint: this car manufacturer liked to have different front badges per car model / dealership chain

Guess I made it too hard!

-The car has the Toyota 1ZZ or 2AZ engine
-It's a Toyota...
-It's based on the Camry (narrowbody) platform
-production run was 5 years, with one minor facelift in the middle. The model was canned due to poor sales
-I own one after I totalled my Toyota Auris -_-

@Solo You got it! Your turn!

I see quite a few of these every day, so I though they'd be a little more common around - maybe not in the USA, but I see a lot of forum posts in Europe and Africa with them
