    Nice. Thinking outside the box like the Delta Wing. Its like a Reliant Robin in reverse.

    Max speed of 107mph

    I'm sure it will catch on with a few people, but I don't think the average American car buyer's view has changed enough for these to sell like hotcakes. Neat idea, and it's great that somebody's doing this, but it will take time to catch on, just like EVs. But the EV can, and I strongly believe will, be solved, unlike this, which is just simply too small to be practical for most. Maybe it will sprout a new market, who knows? I just don't expect high volumes to be sold.

    One thing that's always bothered me about 3-wheelers...if something's in the road, you have less options to avoid hitting it. With a wheel down the middle, you basically have to leave your lane.

    I'll be interested to watch this develop.

    What would be nice is something with a low and wide front end. Turbo charged manual and that'd catch my eye. Keep it low and light increases chances of fast and sporty!

    I built a 3 wheeled solar car while at UNM. I loved how it handled. It had a very low center of gravity and was not even close to street legal. Fun as hell though. If I had the cash I would buy a Morgan.
