or this:
take a standard car, and take out the wheels, wells, suspension and steering systems.
Place in magnets tuned just right so that the wheels are separated from the car body by about 10cm.
the car floats on top of the wheels this way (or straddles or is slinged under) and is completely electrically driven.
OR:
put the magnets in to the corners of the car, and replace the wheels with spheres. parallel parking would be a breeze, especially with a joystick instead of a steering wheel.
i remember seeing a prototype car with sphere wheels and a joystick controller in the late 90's or possibly 2000.

Hummer has been discontinued. the Chinese government refused to allow the deal, and there are no other takers. GM promises to still maintain older hummers, but for how long?
