It would be faster backwards.

That one's interesting because last Friday I was talking to someone about the last 3-wheeler out of Eugene, OR. It was a red, topless version of the Defiant with a VW rear engine.

It ran one year in the Eugene Celebration parade. The VW club tried to get a tour of the shop, but the owner was too secretive to allow it, and then it faded away.

The time frame seems about right, I'll see if I can pin down the year and name.

@003? Here's an electric Morgan concept for Goodwood, that is slated for production:

Faster and lighter than the gas powered version.
