It's been a good long while since we visited the Whiskey Tango Foxtrot spy photography department. Our favorite snappers at CarPix were busily watching over a supplier test facility when the curiosity you see above inched its way out of hiding to perform one quick lap of the snow-covered track before retreating back from whence it came. The sign on the door clearly marks the vehicle as electric (well, "clearly" if you speak German), though details beyond that are conspicuously scarce. From the looks of things, the car has a significantly wider track up front than it does out back, though it's difficult to say exactly what that means.

Which manufacturer is behind this machine? What kind of drivetrain does it boast? Is it actually headed for production? Is it from a major automaker or a niche proposition? The short answer is we haven't the faintest idea. Place your bets in Comments.

        Take away the obvious non-stock headlamps, you have a Porsche-like nose. But the lines don't flow. The roofline is too tall. The driver is in a subcompact vehicle. The shoulder line (more clearly visible on the inside of the left door) is steeply raked. Together, this smacks of Smart. No link to source, and no time to Google it, so I'd be interested to learn exactly where they were.

      The first thing that came to mind was a modern Citro├źn 2CV... Now, that's all I see when inspecting the photograph...

      I feel like it's a Smart car of some sort.

      I see a lot of bad guesses with the exception of Gordon Murray. My way out there guess would be BMW Isetta. Makes a load more sense than VW or Smart.

      Lots of speculation over a yellow placard.
