When we first covered the Stella solar racer you see here, we talked about its designers’ goal to build a solar-powered car that had some real-world practicality.

Back in 2011, it seemed like Green GT’s open-topped race car would be fielded in the 2012 24 hour race at LeMans as part of the Garage 56 program for innovative new technology. It wasn’t to be.
