Here is our best advice on how to score a "car of the future." Head to eBay and bid on this "Fastlane" car manufactured for a Universal Pictures project by famous film/GM concept car maker Trans FX. Buy it now for $14,999.99—an absolute steal to drive a car that no one will possibly own for at least 50 years. Oh, but there's just this one catch (along with some more pics):

It's not actually a car. OK OK, we know, We're horrible. But it could be! Technically just a shell on casters, this strong composite body complete with laser-cut windows is ready to run after some fabrication onto a stretched Fiero chassis.

OK, another catch, only one proper running Fiero exists and it'll cost you $65,000, but we're pretty sure you could fit another car underneath if you put your mind to it.

DISCUSSION

Looking at the auction, it does not appear that there is even a functional transparent windscreen. I doubt there is any way this could even be made street legal without huge costs involving custom windshield fabrication.

On the other hand, it looks kinda cool, and I would display it if I owned it.
