The problem with 4 wheels is on a commercial scale you are building a car and then have to go through all the high safety and emissions requirements. This explosion of 3 wheel concepts is because they are motorcycles and avoid most of the issues. My fear is that loophole will be short lived. Basically get them while they are hot (and legal). Not that they can't be made to car requirements, just that they won't be any less expensive or better performing in any category. I wish we would go the other way any allow the "unsafe" Indian cars in. You should be given the choice as to what level of safety you want. I can check my tire pressure with a $2 Guage and look in a mirror before backing up thank you very much.
