The Polestar O2—the second concept car from Polestar after the company's 2020 Precept—is a 100-percent electric sports car that's a hard-top convertible. Included with the "concept" is a Polestar-designed autonomous drone hidden in the trunk that appears and launches with a button push from the sportster's cockpit touchscreen.


The Polestar Precept ended up being put into actual production for release in 2024, so it's anyone's bet whether the O2 will be a real car or a dream.
