It's cute. It runs on batteries. It does 0-60 in 4 seconds, and the quarter mile at 120. It tops out at around 130. It's got a roll cage, A/C and tandem bucket seats with four-part safety harnesses. It will get you to work really goddamned fast for really goddamned cheap. Unholy union of Nissan and Matchbox
It's the Tango, and it's looking pretty good to lots of people for a lot of good reasons. Could be the next big thing, in fact.
This is all well and good, but what about the main reason for the existence of cars in the first place? I mean, aren't these crackpots really missing the point of an automobile? As I'm sure you must know, I'm talking about the ability to get laid without the inconvenience of going home first. Yes, size does matter. Until they can make this thing with enough interior room for 2 adult-sized adults to get their freak on, I just can't work up an interest in it. I ask you, what's the point of some new thing that does a whole lot towards saving the environment, ending traffic jams and parking problems, saving lots and lots of people's lives, and generally making the civilized world a better place for everyone in it, if you can't use the damned thing to get laid? Jeeze! What were these numbskulls thinking?
