Yes, it really is that short.
The Mazda RX-500 is bonkers even by concept car standards. It had a 491cc rotary engine revving to 14,000 RPM and made a whopping 247 horsepower. Welcome to Japan in 1970.
Did you know that the first Chevy Spark (then Daewoo Matiz) was originally designed to be a Fiat 500? Here's where it all started in '92, the Lucciola concept by Giugiaro.
You want '80s? You want colors so bright they make your eyeballs bleed? Behold the glory of the Subaru Jo-Car from the 1987 Tokyo Motor Show.
How quickly people forget. New York City leaders have been pretty vocal about the Nissan NV200T being the "Taxi of Tomorrow" when, in fact, it isn't much more different in concept than this fuzzy concept from Italdesign and Alfa Romeo. The Taxi of Tomorrow really dates back to the Ford Administration.
The great French superluxury cars of the 1930s were killed by the Great Depression and World War II, but what would a Delage, Delahaye, or Talbot-Lago look like if those companies had survived into the '80s? Maybe the 1988 Peugeot Oxia concept is close.
