Describing any minivan as revolutionary seems like a stretch these days. Back in the early 70s however, that’s exactly what Curt Brubaker’s “Brubaker Box” was. Originally designed as a kind of kit car that would drop onto the chassis of a VW Beetle, the Brubaker Box was eventually shelved when the company went bankrupt after making only three examples of the legendary vehicle. Multiple attempts to revive the design have happened over the decades, but the closest anyone has come to mainstream success is the Tesla Cybertruck that sites the Brubaker Box as inspiration. Designer Samir Sadikhov has rendered his own version that perfectly tows the line between paying homage to the original while being just out there enough to be a great concept. Sweeping exterior lines that connect wooden bumper to wooden bumper and accent the enormous side windows and sunroofs. A spacious interior complete with TV, wood flooring, stylish couch and built-ins that exude futuristic atelier, not minivan. If modern minivans looked like this, people would happily put their names on waiting lists to buy one.
