I think it is easy to understand. It is ugly.
I think you are missing the whole point which is they are a non-profit company on a shoestring budget that have achieved better results than major manufacturers. I have already said my piece on that in previous posts.
They are a licensed manufacturer which I have listened to videos talking about the hoops they have gone through. To poo poo a company because they have yet to sacrifice several cars in actual crash tests is ignoring the realities of start-ups such as these. In fact, they have achieved better speeds and milage however you can't watch the videos ATM. When you can you should go to their youtube channel. They have achieved so much with so little yet major manufacturers think we should jump for joy if a car gets over 40MPG on the highway.
I would definitely consider it as well.
When these guys start offering kits for 10K I may buy a new toy. After watching how they are designed and thought out it looks far simpler than replacing the trainey on my 4X4 truck.
Now, a question:
would you buy a 2-seater car, having 69 HP output, not even reaching 100 mph top speed, for 100 to 150k $?
As an automotive engineer, I can tell you that if I could develop a car that would cost 20k $ maximum, run on a V10 600HP and doing 500mpg, capable of reaching 400km/h, with leather seats, AC, super looks, weighing 500 kgs, well I would waste no time in designing it.
