    The styling is reminiscent of the original Honda Insight. This is a really exciting car. I wonder if real people will ever be able to afford to drive one???

    • would be cool if they decided to try to bring the costs down and produce more. though, reportedly, only 250 to be produced even though there’s greater demand than that for the car.

  • i love this car, but some things don’t come across well in photos/videos. this thing is *tiny* 😀 and definitely catches the eye, even sitting next to a Porsche.
