Kougar Cars was founded in 1979 by Rick Stevens with the first prototype being built in 1976.
The first (approximately 30) cars were marketed by a company called Storcourt Wells Ltd.
Rick still maintains an active interest in the Kougar Owners Club as its President.
The sports car design was not directly inspired by any particular vehicle, but Rick admits to having a certain fondness for the Fraser Nash TT replica and the Healey Silverstone. The first car was sold to an American in 1977, and a batch of 5 cars was exported to Australia.
Production of the “Sports” model has been continuous with about 200 cars being sold over the years.
In 1990 Kougar Cars was sold to Trent Engineering in Somerset, however after about 18 months this company went into receivership and was taken over by John Killick in 1992, whose interest in the car dates back to 1982, when he built a Sports model of his own.
The Sports model has a robust space frame chassis and a bonded on glass fibre body. The whole car weighed less than 1,000kg. the chassis was designed to accept the XJ6 Series 1,2 and 3 or, with some modifications V12 components.
