    "We did not produce that concept. It was rendered by a freelance designer as a creative/visionary exercise. I don’t have a lot of details on the how’s and why’s of its creation….it just sort of appeared. We’re pleased that our Art & Science design was inspirational…..but outside of that, we don’t really have a view on it."

    Purported to be GM's response according to someone's blog.

    With that car you'll have plenty of fuel to get you back and forth to your oncology appointments.
