The Homer In episode 15 of the second season of The Simpsons, Homer designed a car for his half-brother Herb and comically described it as “powerful, like a gorilla, yet soft like a nerf ball.” Well two decades later, Homer’s cartoon car finally became a reality! The amateur racing team over at PorcuBimmer Motors converted a 1987 BMW E30 into a fully functional replica of The Homer. The car features an oversized spoiler, a dome in the rear for the children, a ridiculously massive horn on the roof, and exterior cup holders. It may seem like a completely absurd vehicle, but it was actually a fully functional racecar! It had been outfitted with a racing seat and safety harness, a racing steering wheel, and a full roll cage complete with a fire extinguisher mount in case of crashes and fires. It even participated in the 24 Hours of LeMons race; a sort of parody endurance race known for its outlandish cars. Sadly, as of March 2015 The Homer has been out of commission after sustaining significant damage during a crash at the Sonoma Raceway in California. There have been few updates on the car since the accident, but the owners do hope to rebuild and resurrect their prized Homer. 9. Lumeneo Smera In 2003, the French company began drafting early ideas for an environmentally friendly daily driver car; the Smera. However, it was not officially developed until 2006. This tiny 2-seater was primarily marketed as a sleek, modern, and green alternative to a conventional car. It was powered by a 144-volt rechargeable lithium ion battery. It had a top speed of nearly 70 mph and was able to go from 0 to 60 mph in about 8 seconds. The car was also designed to lean up to 25 degrees into turns, like a motorcycle, for better control. The Smera was sold in its original 2-seater model, but was also available in a 4-seater model referred to as the Neoma. Production began in 2012 with a starting price of $30,000. If you are wondering how this car went into production without you ever hearing about it, that would be because it was considered a massive flop. An estimated 10 vehicles were sold out of Lumeneo’s initial sales goal of 500. The Smera went out of production shortly after and Lumeneo later filed for bankruptcy in 2013. 8. FVT Alé On the opposite end of the success spectrum comes the Alé designed by Fuel Vapor Technologies. Alé has a very noticeably strange exterior, but that is not by accident! It is specifically designed to be as aerodynamic as possible in order to reduce wind drag and overall fuel consumption. This is partly why it is considered one of the most fuel efficient sports cars ever produced! The car also features only 3 wheels, a hollow tube frame, and a fiberglass composite body to keep it lightweight. It runs on regular gasoline, but the real key behind its fuel economy and lower emissions is the fuel vapor system developed by FVT. The system works by heating the gasoline to vaporize it better and mix it with air, before reaching the combustion chamber. Through this method, the Alé is allegedly able to increase fuel efficiency by 10 to 20% while reducing emissions by 30% when applied to a normal car engine. The Alé is so well designed to reduce emissions that it releases 75% less CO2 than most hybrid cars today! And it is still able to go from 0 to 60 in just 5 seconds! That makes it one odd-looking, but impressive car. 7. Honda Wander Stand During the 2015 Tokyo Motor Show, Honda debuted the Wander Stand as part of their “Wander” series of small personal vehicles. It is four-wheeled with lots of vertical space, allowing the user to stand while driving. The Wander Stand was designed to be small enough to fit through Japan’s train station turnstiles so they can be driven onto the train, but is still large enough to fit two standing adults. Ha! It has a top speed of 3.7 mph, so it is just a bit faster than walking. Although not very fast, it’s not meant to be a road-worthy vehicle, but rather a device to replace walking, similar to Segways. However, it is much more technologically advanced than any Segway. The Wander Stand incorporates augmented reality systems to project information on the screen while being driven with a joystick rather than a steering wheel to control it. Plus, the Honda Omni Traction System allows the driver to move forward, backward, diagonally, and sideways.
