1989 Innocenti DeTomaso Mini Turbo
Indeed, this thoroughly-Eighties-looking hatch is ultimately based on a classic Mini bodyshell, though nearly everything else has been changed.

It looks like so much fun. It appears to be in nearly perfect condition, too, so occasional commuting in dry weather might be acceptable.
It’s on eBay in Virginia with reserve not yet met.
