America's thinnest car?: Maker of super-skinny Tango electric aims to restart production.

At a bit more than three feet wide, the Tango is clearly in contention for bragging rights to claim to be America's skinniest car. Eleven were built and now Rick Woodbury says he's like to create more, so he's taking orders.

Absolutely not... now if I lived in a downtown metropolis type area possbily. Although if I lived in an area like that I'd probably just walk or use public transportation. So I guess back to the absolutely not.

Its top speed is ...150 and it goes zero to 60 mph almost as fast as a Tesla electric sports car and reinforced like an indy car with a roll cage rather than air bags.I have heard it can split lanes or weave in traffic like motorcycles do as well,with the battery weigh within inches of the road but HALF the car for FIVE time the cost makes no sense for the average consumer.

Only if I was a trillionaire with money to waste. Then, it might be cool to have one as a toy.

Walk, you lazy SOBs.

Especially if you are going to go with such and impractical mode of transport that does nothing else but take you a few blocks here or there...

Oh, give me a break!

There are folks that may be able to use a car like this. But, heaven forbid anyone has a different view of things...

Close minded folks call others lazy SOBs because they might have a use for such a car.

I live in a small mountain town and could see some utility in a car like this...

of course a golf cart would do much the same.
