Reverse the color scheme and give me some sort of protection from rocks and water in the door and I could have a little fun in one of these.

Yes, there is no rollover protection of any sort and I'm not sure what the cockpit divider would do to your sides in the case of a shunt, but I'd look very cool tooling down the street in this.

It's interesting to watch the prototyping process.

That looks straight out of a Speed Racer cartoon, and I mean that as a compliment

I think it's cool that they'd just make a car for fun.

Oh, I'm sure there are many commercial aspects to it, but they probably could have done some boring engineering exercise to showcase those, this shows the company has a little fun in it's corporate soul.

Im watching the news and I tried for the heck off it to click on your video. I kept clicking looking for parts where they show the car, I tried several points and then just gave up

The entire video shows the car, unless you mean the finished product which is shown in the last 30 seconds.
