Savor 

October 29, 2009 — A very short span cantilevered high wing, extra-wide cabin with tandem seating, welded steel tube fuselage inside a fiberglass faring with a metal wing filled as smooth as any composite wing—appearing like so many tricycle-geared European S-LSA entrants—until you look in the cooling inlets and see an 0-320! What could this possibly be? The name inscribed on the vertical stab reads “Savor the Experience” and the EXPERIMENTAL decal displayed in two-inch letters on the door still didn’t help solve the puzzle posed on the showplane ramp at the Copperstate Regional Fly-in last week. Only when owner/designer/builder, 29-year-old Chris Christiansen appeared and answered questions did it all come together…the one-of-a-kind Savor. Click here for the full story ...

Interesting project.  I like the unobstructed cantilever wing and the performance numbers are good.  A spinner will improve the looks.  A taildragger version would look even better, might need a bigger rudder for that.

Ditto on the taildragger suggestion -- that would be interesting. A beautiful airplane -- can't wait to see in person!

Thx for additional photos.  Sweet airplane.   With a spinner, gear fairings and wheelpants this will look very hot.
