I agree with your observations, but it still has a wow factor, for me anyway.

A simple compliance with let's say headlight regulations (height) would ruin this design concept, and like you said this is more of a 918 warm over.

I saw the most interesting house today, hot red/pink with two kinds of vibrant green accents and white trim - it looked great in full sun.

Not colors I would have chosen but they pulled it off.

I could not get the Cut-A-Way diagram to post but left a link, it is adorable. Too bad it was all those brave Poles had to go up against German and Russian tanks with. It was more like a mobile machine gun nest although later ones had cannon or mortar.

General Motors' Firebird II was described as having an "electronic brain" that allowed it to move into a lane with a metal conductor and follow it along.
