Last Call: Model X inspiration edition

Some say that Tesla revolutionized the automotive market. Some say that Tesla designs are unique and extremely original. And yet, here we are.

I don’t know the true source of image. I couldn’t find any other information on it. If anyone does, lease let us know.

Last Call indicates the end of Hooniverse’s broadcast day. It’s meant to be an open forum for anyone and anything. Thread jacking is not only accepted, it’s encouraged.

  1. Behold the push-me-pull-you ravenous crabarachnid snow eater of Moscow! (And if you’re anywhere between Winnipeg and Pittsburgh, STAY WARM!)

  2. Looks like a commercial vehicle conversion judging by the flat rear floor, you could imagine that layout being quite handy for morning bakery deliveries and the like. Given that using a Carrozzeria (or however you spell the fancypants Italian word for coachbuilder) after WW2 was still very cheap, you see lots of these one off type things based on fiats.

    1. This would be a good floral delivery vehicle in a crowded city. Too bad my wife insists on using Grand Caravans for that purpose.

      1. It looks like they posted a little bit more on their Facebook page – if the translation is correct, it was a prototype study for gardeners?

        1. The Giardiniera was the wagon version of the 500, with the engine laid on its side so there could be a rear door possible. Perhaps this prototype proved that was necessary.

          Not sure what Tesla’s excuse is?

  3. I don’t know about the doors, but I still think the Tesla Model X looks like what the 3rd generation Pontiac Aztek would have been.
