Peugeot has issued a triple whammy of teaser images for a forthcoming concept - but Autocar sources say the car in question won't make it to the Paris motor show at the end of the month.

The shadowy images reveal little about the shape of the car - referred to by the firm as '1009' - although the side profile image does indicate that it may lack a windscreen, and sport a large rear wing.

The name means the concept is likely to be small, and our sources have suggested that it is "experimental"; that almost certainly means an all-electric or hybrid powertrain instead of a regular combustion engine.

Peugeot's teaser campaign indicates that the vehicle will be revealed on 21 September. That's less than 10 days before the press day for the Paris motor show, but insiders suggest that the 1009 won't be present on the firm's stand.

A replacement for the 1007 maybe . Why not call it 1008 do instead off using 9 already like . Peugeot whats that about . 1009 is hardly a catchy name like for a coupe or sports car now is it .

They need to pay their photographers a bit more, so they can afford some better lighting.

Pretty meaningless, really.
