I Want This

Designed in 1962, the Ford Ghia Selene concept car pretty obviously never even made it close to an assembly line. Instead, Ford went on to inflict Pintos, Aerostars and Crown Victorias on a credulous and insufficiently flame resistant buying public, leaving the Selene's space-age design and presumptive tendency not to explode to the Jetsons. Even though some of the paleofuturistic qualities can be found in the almost-for-real plug-in electric Aptera 2e, I'd still rather be driving the Selene to my gig at Spacely Sprockets each morning.
