Oszkár Beke’s Isetta 236cc 1957

Oszkár Beke built this car after he saw a Isetta. Beke was Hungarian born but lived in Oredea, Rumania. At least this photos were taken in Oredea.

The 2013 solar car developed by Cambridge students has a more aerodynamic design, thanks to tracking solar panels at the back, which prevent any compromise on its shape.

Two minutes apart? I was looking for something else and I found this:


Future Transportation - X-Frame All-Electric Vehicle Folds Up Vertically For Storage

A boxed out Morelli body reverse tricycle with the fronts pushed out so they are in a positive pressure gradient without interference drag and a spherical rear wheel pant because why not.

Several 1930's aerodynamic inspired automobiles in this link, I'm posting the one that actually succeeds (I think).

Streamliner Car Design and the Evolution of Fastbacks
Posted by Dennis Adler on Monday, November 24, 2014
https://heacockclassic.com/articles/...-of-fastbacks/



Quote:
The rear view of the Dubonnet is the most striking, looking almost like a rocket ship. André Dubonnet and Jacques Saoutchik believed the aerodynamic contours would allow the Xenia Coupé to break a land speed record. Unfortunately the start of World War II prevented Dubonnet from attempting this feat in 1939.

This looks slippery, and it's a race car.

Alfa Romeo or Panhard ?

NE EXPERIENCE TROP BREVE

Fin 1964, en effet, conséquence d'un règlement impératif, commença l'étude d'un prototype de 1600 cm3 à moteur central arrière de marque Alfa-Roméo qui devait être réalisé en collaboration avec GRAC, le célèbre constructeur de la région de Valence dans la Drome.

Le règlement de 1965 pour les 24 Heures du Mans touchait de plein fouet Charles DEUTSCH et son équipe.
I've only seen that pretty blue Panhard before, the one with the giant wings/fins.

This looks fun.

The Panhard Monopole (1956-1958) in the link above will not Hotlink, it's the other blue Panhard with the gull-wing doors, check it out.

I have a new favorite ...again. This one has a good pedigree:


A perforated plate at the stagnation point. A Morelli-friendly tail truncation. The signature Colani round windshield. I'm guessing since it doesn't have the three-bladed wiper the whole windshield spins at ~100rpm.

Ingress/egress?
