LA Auto Show: A French Tatra called Faurecia

Cars like this make me stop and think. I mean, either Jalopnik is sending out strange vibrations, or there are other people in the world who think the only thing better than a Czech-built Tatra is a French-built one. Well, here's the rub — it's not actually a production vehicle. The Faurecia is a design study. And here's the odd part, and it's going to upset you, but only at first. The engine ain't in the trunk no more. I know, I know, sacrilege. However, there is method to this seeming madness. The rear seats fold down and the trunk extends out. Super Franco-Czech storage possibilities! More later on the tres-nifty interior, but this blasphemous sucker is one of the very best looking cars at the show. OK, we're off to cover the new FWD Ferrari minivan. Au revoir!
