If you could fill any car with Prius guts, which would you choose? :)
 
It seems like vehicle size and weight have almost kept up with the advances in automotive technology; what could an old Civic HX, for example, achieve with modern hybrid components?

Just curious! :)

I'd do an MR2. Just for the hell of it. The Prius powerplant should be enough to get a first-gen non-turbo down to around the 7-8 seconds to 60 mph range...

Would also fit nicely in a second-gen. Sexy body, great handling, Prius economy...

Guess what one of the 1930s Stromlinien cars like the Schlörwagen would do !

A Chevy Volt ! kidding
a Ford ranger. I owned a 05 3L Ranger that got 21 mpg, other wise a nice lil truck.

Nothing lol I'd rather make the prius all electric, with the Fusion or Sonata electronics, the Fusion body, a diesel power plant for recharge, rear wheel drive, and modify aero a bit.
