From the 'what ever happened to that idea' dept.

the VW Scooter concept car. circa 1988.
I clipped the above photo from a car magazine back in the days when my dream car was a Porsche 944. I'm not sure what ever became of the idea of a VW Scooter. It wasn't really much of a scooter. It had 2 seats, 3 wheels, and a briefcase in the dash that doubled as the glove compartment. It's the perfect 'drive to BART ' car. I would have to date the photo around 1987 or 1988. Google hasn't been helpful on finding more information. Does anyone know if these ever made it into production outside the US? If so, did they make them in colors other than mint green?


  1. The scooter is what wrong with small fuel efficient car designs. There's also a smart? car floating around today that really needs to be taken off the roads. Designs should be long and narrow not short and fat.
