If you could design a car would it look like this?
The important thing to remember about the Yamaha Sports Ride concept unveiled at the 2015 Tokyo Motor Show is that it’s just that: a concept. Yamaha, YAMCF, +0.21% maker of really nice pianos, really nice saxophones and really nice motorcycles, isn’t likely to get into the car business, sports or otherwise, soon.
But as far as concepts go, the Sports Ride is more interesting that most — and it might just be able to save us from the super-lame transportation pods threatening our future. That’s because the Sports Ride is hiding a dirty secret under its swoopy, scaled-down hypercar curves: It is a super-lame transportation pod car. Sort of.
