This just came across my desk and it looks so interesting I thought I should take a break from what I was doing to put it out here. It’s a new concept from a Texas based company called TerraCraft. It’s a rear engine, tilting reverse trike with an enclosed body.
It has a tube frame, retractable canopy and, to my eye, one of the better looking designs so far. The team includes some ex NASA folks, courtesy of the downsizing of the space agency and gets design leadership from Foresee Car Design.
The project is still in the early stages, but one thing I like is their realistic price projections, ranging from $40 thousand to $80 thousand, depending on level of trim and option packages. They clearly state they are aiming at a niche market of buyers who have the resources to purchase something like this, no mass market pretensions are in their plans.
Like so many other startups, this one may go nowhere, but if it does, it would certainly look good while doing so. Check it out.
