The Revenge of the Two Seaters

The Frankfurt Auto Show had a couple of interesting surprises this year, both of them coming in petite sizes. The two cars above, the Nissan Land Glider and the Volkswagen L1, are both two seater concept cars. I definitely feel like smaller cars are the future of driving, and seeing ideas like these really get me excited.

Of the two I’m definitely more in love with Nissan concept, the Land Glider. The design reminds me of an enclosed motorcycle, especially when you take corners and the vehicle leans up to 17 degrees to improve stability. When it leans there are front and rear panels that move along with it and they totally remind me of shoulder blades, which to me is a really neat idea.

You can check out videos of both of these vehicles under the cut.
