It has four wheels. The two in front a closer together than the ones in back. It is like the Isetta with its two wheels in back being close together. Some variants of the Isetta were three wheels.


I also thought it reminded me of the Trimuter.

It has three wheels. I think the reverse trike configuration is more stable.

In addition to stability problems, it's very hard to miss large potholes and items in the road when the track of the vehicle has a tire every 18 inches across the vehicles width.

assuming a 3-wheeled vehicle is automatically unstable would be foolish. It's is all in the design. There is no reason a 3-wheeled vehicle cannot be designed to handle very well and many have a long and illustrious racing history -- Morgan comes to mind! I'm currently building a Buckland B3 -- another 3-wheeler with a racing pedigree!
