Commuter Cars is a Spokane, Washington based company founded by Rick Woodbury and his son Bryan. They are beginning production of the first of their line of ultra-narrow electric sports cars, the Tango T600. The first production car is owned by actor George Clooney who took delivery on August 9, 2005.
The T600 costs $108,000 and is delivered virtually fully assembled, requiring the owner to complete the car in about eight hours.
The company has submitted a Letter of Intent to compete for the Progressive Insurance Automotive X Prize. Whether this involves the Tango T600 or one of their concepts, the Tango T100 and T200, or some other car is unknown.
Famous quotes containing the word cars:
“The reason American cars dont sell anymore is that they have forgotten how to design the American Dream. What does it matter if you buy a car today or six months from now, because cars are not beautiful. Thats why the American auto industry is in trouble: no design, no desire.”
—Karl Lagerfeld (b. 1938)
