I so want one of these...

VC-12 Tournatrain

And it's electric powered, so pop a few solar panels on that sucker and you have free transportation👍😉

That's an odd duck isn't it? Looks like something we'd see on Mars.

Good thing you have free transportation because you'll never find a place to park that monster.

It could never exist on Mars. It is diesel-electric. Mars is 96% carbon dioxide. Worse, an attempt to extract oxygen results in carbon monoxide. And even deadlier gas.

Solar panels could only create enough electricity to move tires and stall.

One remains parked and abandoned in Alaska. Plenty of parking spaces.
