The battery looks to be in front of the engine, and the "reservoir" could be gasoline, but could also be for "oil" if it's a two-stroke. If true, then where is the gas tank, up front?

EDIT:

réservoir d'essence does translate to Fuel Tank.

I am unable to decipher what #5 is, tried battery and Electrical.

condensateur is capacitor, and there is an Ecomodder thread on using capacitors (small/light weight) in lieu of traditional battery.

Giorgetto Giugiaro, founder of the Turin design house Italdesign and, as of this writing, 80 years old, could safely be called one of the most successful and prolific auto designers of all time. Giugiaro was impressed and intrigued enough with Le Corbusier’s Voiture Minimum that in 1987 he commissioned a full-scale studio model. After more than half a century of existence only on paper, Le Corbusier’s dream car had finally taken solid, three-dimensional form.

The book, which I got on an interlibrary loan, said that the reason he didn't do better in the competition was that the design brief said four passengers and his only carried three, but No. 63, for instance, looks more like a two-passenger.

Looks like 4-seats to me, but unrealistic 3-row seating up front.

He bent to rules a little too much?

Sideways seating in the rear, just a Porsche 911.

Would have been better off proposing a rumble seat instead with a removable cloth top?

Just have their heads pop up out of the peel back roof.

I knew about a roll-back sunroof, but never a roll-up trunk lid.

That's NOT a Citroen 2CV, it's one of 250 TPV's made before WWII, all destroyed by the French so the Nazi's would not get a hold of them, but Porsche got a hold of one anyway. A few hidden away in attics and the like, one so well hidden it was not discovered until 1994.

I only know this because I read the article.

Who said it was?


https://dailyarchives.org/index.php/...-a-design-icon

The pre-production Beetles included a sedan, a convertible and a roll-back sunroof; although it stopped above the rear window.

Besides increasing the passenger capacity, that would also improve legroom considerably. Well, a removable cloth top could be shaped in a way that could not harm the aerodynamics so badly.

Right, you did not say 2CV, but neither was it clarified as an exclusive TPV comment.

Consider my comments as a clarification for future reference and for people that not yet read the article in the link.
