Where we're going, we don't need roads

Squba_lCan your car swim? This amphibious vehicle, the Rinspeed sQuba (dubbed “Scubacar” over on Defamer), was unveiled at the 2008 Geneva Auto Show, and while the thought of riding in it makes me queasy — on the water, I have no seasickness problems, but underwater seatbelted into a submerged convertible? No thanks! — I like to look at it, and would love to see it action. Taking inspiration from the sportscar-turned-submarine in 1977’s The Spy Who Loved Me (the infamous Lotus Esprit), I think we PopWatchers should craft a film or TV plot worthy of “Scubacar.” Should she join the newest gadgets in the Daniel Craig-era 007 arsenal? Save lives on a revamped Baywatch? Become a love interest for Knight Rider‘s KITT? Dive in and tell us what kind of adventure you envision for the car that swims.
