It's amazing what you can accomplish if you systematically ignore international copyright law.

I'll remember this if I am even trying to a Mustang in China... and I can't trust my own lying eyes.

It's amazing that companies use international copyright law to prevent people from making identical devices at a fraction of the cost.

I bet a replacement front bumper for that doesn't cost $1000

It's almost like ripping shiat off saves you hundreds of millions of dollars investing in design and testing costs, allowing you to sell someone else's idea and effort at a fraction of the price because you didn't have to pay for any of the development...

Yes, it's exactly like that.

Identical to what? It looks like an Audi on the outside, a Subaru on the inside and has mechanicals from an old Austin. That just screams fit-and-finish problems. It's not worth whatever they are asking for it. You're not getting a one-off here, your getting a claptrap piece of crap with pieces of a bunch of different unrelated cars combined together.

If you are going to go for a Chinese knock off, may as well go for big style

"If you happen to care about the specs of this Mustang F16, it supposedly has an 80 horsepower electric motor with a top speed of 68 mph and a range of 162 miles.

Makes the V-6 Mustang suddenly seem quite macho, doesn't it? "

My Mustang outperforms that (88 LX w/ 2.3L Pinto, I've done 80MPH in it)!

I've crushed cans on my forehead that fared better than that car.

The flying guillotine windshield at the end was my favorite part.

//maybe regs aren't so bad after all.

It looks like an Audi. A crappy Audi. But I repeat myself.

I would happily drive such a vehicle, if not for the death-trap aspects.

Austin Maestro mechanicals?

Mind you, Japanese cars were mocked in the 60s and 70s....

Yeah but they weren't cobbled together from other manufacturer's leftovers, some of which are seriously questionable in this case, and they weren't pieces of crap. Japanese cars from the 60's and 70's almost always started when you turned the key, with moderate maintenance they ran for years.

To me this looks top heavy like the 1990s Ford Aspire:

A lot of the early ones were. Nissan started out by building Austin 7 copies in the 30s, and they and Toyota used/copied American tech and designs.

Well America managed to industrialise itself by systamtically ignoring European copyrights.


But the artical is a fail. the Austin Maestro wasn't made in the 80's. It was thrown together in a shed in Birmingham in the 80's when the workers wern't on strike using steel that Fiat rejected for being rubbish.

Nothing is obscure about the "Dodge/Plymouth Conquest" (See: Mitsubishi Starion/Original 3000GT-VR-6).

The origin went something like this in Japan: "Ford is making a better 4-cylinder twin-turbo vehicle than we are, on our own turf, what do we do to fix this?"

"...Copy it while ignoring any of the really advanced suspension technology?"

"GENIUS!"

Looks like a bunch showed up on Aliexpress, and they even offer free shipping.

Sure it's easy to make fun of Chinese cars now...

Deedly deedly deedly (it's now 10 years in the future)

"Oh look everyone's driving Chinese cars now."

looks more like a subaru station wagon
 
2012-12-13 02:27:54 PM
I don't see what's so funny - the car looks fine to me, though you can tell it's a bit on the cheap side. Still, not the worst thing I've seen on the road and an electric motor with a 162 mile range is pretty good.

Another 'original' car. How innovative China.

Or in other words still better than a GM inside. And my new charger is nice, smooth, powerful, and handles well for the money.
