    haha, the u.s. will never see those. ford/gm/chevy will buy the company before we are allowed anything cheap and economical.

    33 hp?

    i've seen faster lawn mowers.

    those things will be too fucking slow to be safe. How the hell can you safely merge onto a highway at 17 mph?

    hey look, someone re-re-reinvented the VW beetle/mini cooper/Geo Metro

    On that platform Hybrid and Solar techonologies could really thrive

    Outside of Yugo, the other Bricklin project, Cheri out of China is supposed to be a sub $7000 car as well.

    The Yugo was a Fiat design that was badly built, and the Chery is a Chevy Spark clone.

    The Dodge Hornet is a Chery.

    I'm willing to bet Chery actually makes the Chevy Spark. Another case of 1990 automotive industry death

    My dad was telling me about some of these cheap cars... If they work out, the Big 3 are done... For $3k, you can buy one, drive it for a year, and throw it away and get a new car. Thats $250/mo for a brand new car every year if you wanted...
