Attached is the original Turbo prototype ROM from Coleco. I apologize for not posting this sooner, I completely forgot about it. Thanks to Rom Hunter for reminding me about it.

I am now able to make more copies of the reproduction Turbo sold in the AtariAge Store, which includes a slightly tweaked version of the attached prototype, and a significantly enhanced version, selectable with a pretty cool steering wheel screen. I wasn't able to produce copies for a good period of time as one of the components we used on the original board shot up immensely in price once it was discontinued. I now have a new Coleco board design that I used for the run of Lady Bug Collector's Edition, and I'm able to use it for Turbo as well.

Hmmm, I'm not sure anyone ha found the easter egg in the cartridge version of Turbo yet.. :ponder:

That's not what we had discussed back then. But I am not 100% sure what got into the final release.

The intent was always to release that ROM. I had just forgotten about it.
