Latest Prototype 453

23 Sep 2013

Posted by Mike T in Front Page News
The new fortwo has been revealed in its more or less definitive form, but it's still somewhat disguised. Note the four wheel bolts!

These are the first spy pics depicting the production variant of next year’s Smart ForTwo.
Up until now we only saw test mules of the second-gen ForTwo but now we get the chance to take a look at the rear-wheel drive city car in production form which is scheduled to come out sometime in 2014. The ForTwo will be available strictly as a two-door model but a ForFour revival with two additional doors is also in the pipeline with a stretched wheelbase to accommodate two rear passengers.
The Smart duo will share platform with the next-gen Renault Twingo which will be offered exclusively as a five-door model. Reports are indicating Smart is planning an electric version of the ForTwo powered by an 87 bhp (65 kW) electric motor. Regular versions will be available with several three-cylinder gasoline and diesel versions, including a turbocharged gasoline motor developing 84 bhp (63 kW) and 104 bhp (77 kW).

@  spider : (20 August 2014 - 05:41 AM) Hi guys, just wodering where you get all your custom parts for your smart car like exhaust, cold air intake, spacers for wheels, rims and tires. I've seen them on ebay, but was wondering if there are cheaper places.
@  smartdriver : (18 August 2014 - 07:14 PM) I PROMISE THAT I WILL NEVER POST A TITLE ALL IN CAPS!
@  FlossyTheSmart : (18 August 2014 - 07:13 PM) XYZ jokingly de-capitalized of course :)
@  FlossyTheSmart : (18 August 2014 - 07:13 PM) More annoying than bad. Helps prevent things post titles like "HELP ME I DON'T KNOW HOW TO XYZ" when it doesn't need to be in caps, and could just be "Help, I don't know how to Xyz"
@  smartdriver : (18 August 2014 - 07:11 PM) Why are all caps titles bad?
@  smartdriver : (18 August 2014 - 07:04 PM) Thanks. On numerous occasions in the past I tried editing my post to correct the capitalization problem without success.
@  FlossyTheSmart : (18 August 2014 - 07:03 PM) Turned it off. If we start getting all-caps titles (That aren't intended to be), I'll turn it back on though.
@  FlossyTheSmart : (18 August 2014 - 07:02 PM) It's an "shouting" preventer. I can turn it on and off. Maybe we can try it off for a while
@  FlossyTheSmart : (18 August 2014 - 07:01 PM) Sort of. That same issue was there before too though.
@  smartdriver : (18 August 2014 - 07:00 PM) For example SAM comes out as Sam
@  smartdriver : (18 August 2014 - 06:59 PM) Is it possible to fix the capitalization problem in the headings which exists when posting?
@  FlossyTheSmart : (18 August 2014 - 06:14 PM) New wiki feels nicer to edit and make articles to me
@  FlossyTheSmart : (18 August 2014 - 06:13 PM) Lol
@  Francesco : (18 August 2014 - 06:13 PM) But yeah, maybe
@  Francesco : (18 August 2014 - 06:12 PM) It's hard to tell until Mike T gets back! :icon_wink: :icon_smile:
@  FlossyTheSmart : (18 August 2014 - 06:07 PM) Less activity after moving the shoutbox to the bottom? :(
@  Francesco : (17 August 2014 - 10:48 PM) Lol
@  jwight : (17 August 2014 - 06:12 PM) Hey, where's the shout bar??? :D
@  Francesco : (17 August 2014 - 01:50 PM) Hey that's awesome
@  FlossyTheSmart : (17 August 2014 - 11:06 AM) Moved to the bottom, easy peasy
