A fiberglass body replica (to keep the weight down) of a 67-68 Mustang Fastback. This is just all theoretical, but what if you could fit 5-8 battery packs under the hood and/or in the trunk space/rear seat area to really extend the battery only range? Maybe slap a mid/high rpm turbo on the prius engine (like I've seen on youtube) to give it slightly more "oomph" when you need it for the freeway, and you'd have a nice prius with some classic style.

Or, if it is sacrilegious to put prius guts in such a classic body, you could use a Mustang II. No one would care that you gutted it. Or try to steal it. Or notice how much better you made the Mustang II. Top Gear would probably try to buy it to destroy it and get that eyesore off the road, lol.
