    It will be painful to wait silently for the Elio. In the meantime, I get kind of boored myself so I like to consider what could exist. I'm not sure there are a high percentage of people interested in what is possible for 3wheelers. I'l keep this activity limited to this one thread. But seriously a real build, custom or prototype, which I'm interested in, takes lots of effort, you really need to have an idea of where things could end up. So I've done quite a lot of graphic works. I don't do magazine level illustrations, and not always as original styling, I often try a remix from what exists. I'm just trying to get a clue as to how such a craft could really turn out. So to start a game here, if you want to play, I'll post some morphed or other images of what does not exist. And anyone who wants, please, write what you think about it, good or bad. NOBODY has the same taste. Nobody has the same goals for the result. Please not just yes or no, but how and why, the details please! And if you like, post your own ideas and concepts 'graphically'. This kind of thing is useful to designers.
    So here is my first submission, based on the Delahaye. I did post part of it elsewhere, but I wanted to show the original next to the 'study' images.

    The difference on this last one, is the flat window, big cost savings for a custom build.

    So to show another direction the 2F1R styles can head into, here's a morph of the Fenix.
    Yes, I'm hoping there is way to do this as a 2016 Elio2, yes, total long shot. But then there could be aftermarket body kits. An inexpensive Elio enables all of that. Boutique manufacturing? Anything could happen.

    And here some variables in small format images. Does anyone happen to know what the original vehicle is?

    So how about going into the outlandish extreme sport area, such as the Fioravanti, Cappro or something called the CCD? Seriously, not something I would ever consider for myself, but it is a full section of the automoitve world.

    Here are some body mods more inline with the Elio ethics.
    The first one is not a morph, it's the BugWing, an actual chopped VW bug.

    Then a GeoMetro remix

    A Geo Storm Mod

    Refactoring of the JetCar

    Conversion of the Mathis from sociable into inline seating

    And finally an upgrade for the messherschmitt to freeway readiness.

    And I do like that idea. Racing is a very diverse world, and a great way to engage the public.

    So continuing on , let's take a look at some heavy metal. Just like racing, it's a big area from the point of view of style and personna. It may not seem to apply to elite-efficiency, but this does give some ideas that can be re-purposed to it. For my part, I want as many people to buy an Elio as possible. So I'm glad for the skills EM has to apply automotive art in this area. I saw laying around thier design offices plenty of 'heavy metal' artwork. From my own collection of 'Morphics', this is set 1 of 2?, I can only attach 10 images. These are the names as found on the web;
    Venturi Fetish
