In all seriousness though, we should be producing these with licensed bodies, we could do a Suburban or a Bronco or an X5 or a Range Rover, Kia, Cayenne, UniMog.
Perhaps one of the automobile manufacturers who would like to promote maneuverability and control of their SUV would be interested in an iPhone controlled 2 inch length model R/C car. They must sell lots of R/C cars on the Porsche website - they actually have a fairly nice selection. I can see them calling Plantraco about our ZenWheels iPhone controlled R/C Cars and making a special branded and licensed model.
We intentionally designed the ZenWhels cars with larger, oversized, out of scale wheels that would allow the car to overcome small obstacles.
There is some leeway for doing a scale top cover - the main tweaks that have to be done are usually to pull out the fenders wider up front for the steering arc. It would be great. I normally focus on the mechanicals and the performance and interface and less on the cosmetics. But yeah a licensed scale model would make us do it for sure.
