Voiture Minimum



I see by the dates on these, I uploaded them almost two years ago, with the intention of creating this thread. √ It's a $50 book, so I got it through inter-library loan.

The scanner hadn't stopped working at all yet, so the scans are bad. Here're some drawings:




The whole point of getting it, was to learn about Le Corbusier's car compared to Porsche's VW Beetle:



Here they are superimposed. Coincidence, or the heavy hand of Count Ferdinand von Zepplin? In typical prima dona architect style, as a slave to geometry, he created a Beetle sized car that only carried three passengers. ???



Note the book included one modern 3D model of the car. I'm kinda in favor of G. Broulhiet.
