An imaginary classic-styled microcar from Fallout 4

Over the past few days we have discussed some of the microcars that were ever existed but may have been forgotten today (here). Now, we are back with a microcar that only exists in Bethesda's Fallout game. The first time we saw this cute microcar shape while surfing the internet, we were immediately interested in discussing it.

Yes, at that time we were on the Pinterest site, we saw this microcar unique figure appeared in the 'teardrop' classic design style on an short-article published on IGCD.net. This unique imaginary microcar is one of the non-playable items in a multi-platform game (PC, PS4, and XBox) titled Fallout 4 made by Bethesda Game Studios, which was released in 2015.

On the page, this imaginary tadpole-shaped microcar is referred to as the Iso Isetta, perhaps because it bears a resemblance to the microcar made by Iso in the 1950s. We're not sure, do you see any similarities of boths? After reading the comments of the article on the IGCD.net page where they on average mention that this microcar is estimated to be almost the same size as the 1953 Iso Isetta and 1955 BMW Isetta 250.

Actually in this game this cute microcar is called 'Blue Zip' or 'Zip'. As you can see, the microcar is painted in blue while on the billboard somewhere in the Fallout's wasteland, maybe that's why it's called Blue Zip while the wrecked ones are red, maybe that's called Zip only.

From the pictures in the internet, physically it can be described as a small, three-wheeled, single-seated vehicle with two large glass doors on each side for easy access. The steering wheel, left and right shift sticks were removable to allow the driver more room when stepping into the small car. It had a large windshield and no real back window or side mirrors. 
Which is the Zip's imaginary microcar more like? Here's 1953 Iso Isetta is built by Iso and also the forerunner of the BMW Isetta models. (Picture from: https://bit.ly/3gAd5gy)
There are two large headlights along with a small one on top of the car and two running lights on the lower sides, with no visible brake lights. This three-wheeled microcar adopts the typical jet-age style that was booming in the 1950s (so it looks more like a 'tiny space-shuttle capsule' than a car), it is possible that this shape was deliberately made to fit the Fallout 4 game story plots.

There is a quite striking difference when saw from the access to the cabin, as we already know that the 1953 Iso Isetta and 1955 BMW Isetta 250 microcars have access to the cabin via the front. However, there is little resemblance to the 1953 Iso Isetta when viewed from the placement of the headlamps in a lower position and the large side windows.
Which is the Zip's imaginary microcar more like? Here's 1956 Heinkel Kabine 175 Type 153 was a microcar produced by Heinkel Flugzeugwerke ranging from 1956 to 1958. (Picture from: https://binged.it/33Yhk0g)
The tadpole-shaped Zip microcar has a hinge on the roof to open the door up like a gullwing door. So it's clear that access to the cabin is through the sides like an ordinary car. Besides being based on some very obscure models / concepts, it is most likely a mix of many designs.
Which is the Zip's imaginary microcar more like? Here's 1953 Gaitán Auto-Tri, an egg-shaped microcar by a Seville-based manufacturer named Construcciones Gaitán, SL. (Picture from: https://bit.ly/3kAYZgn)
If we look at the design of the tadpole-shaped microcar, it is very similar to the Gaitán Auto-Tri microcar concept, which is designed like an egg made by a Seville-based manufacturer, called Construcciones Gaitán, SL. in 1953. Maybe because not many people know this Spanish microcar, so the Zip is said to be similar to the Iso Isetta and BMW Isetta 250 or even Heinkel Kabine 175 Type 153. Then what do you think about its powertrain? Do You have any ideas about a suitable engine for this Zip microcar?

Although the Zip microcar is only an imaginary vehicle, and it doesn't exist in the real world. Of course, this does not necessarily preclude the possibility of being manifested in the real world. Yes, if someone is interested and has the capability to do that, why not? Are you interested in bringing the unique-shaped microcar to the world? *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | IGDC.NET | BING ]
