Car Design Inspired By...Cooters?

Turtles, to you city folks:

3D printing has been used to make everything from toys and plaster casts to parts for jet engines.

And now one German automotive company has unveiled a revolutionary conceptual car body that it claims will only be made possible by using what is termed as 'additive manufacturing' or large-scale 3D printing.

The internal structure is inspired by the shape of a turtle skeleton and is designed so that it will provide incredible protection and cushioning, just like the animal’s shell.


They can call it the Porsche Cooter! Cooter Cars! Volkswagen can make one, they can call it the Cooter Pooper!
