I'm not sure how many people remember this but back at the 2015 Tokyo Auto Show, Yamaha revealed a sports car called the Sports Ride Concept. It was designed and developed by Gordon Murray based on the iStream process. Despite its amazing design, Yamaha confirmed that all their car projects were dead in 2019. However, it seems that the Sports Ride moved past the concept stage between 2015 and 2019.

The EU IP office published a car design filed by Yamaha in 2018 that looks like a refined version of the Sports Ride. What makes this even more interesting is that the design doesn't show any sort of an exhaust system. Maybe it was going to be all-electric? Maybe it would've been Yamaha's response to the Tesla Roadster.

Who knows what could've been if Yamaha actually went through with this.

Here's what the Sports Ride looked like in 2015:

I don't remember this car at all. I'm surprised because this thing look sweet, I can't believe Yamaha convinced Gordon Murray to do this.
