There’s a bit of first-gen Civic in the Rinkai Every. With its affordablity and lively road manners, it would have been the perfect set of wheels for the everyman during the dark age of motoring.
With looks like that and performance to match, the Jiko would have been a shoo-in for Gran Turismo 2 - especially the GT500 version, which would either have been listed as a Special Model in the dealership or made available as a prize.
On top of that, its light weight and tunability would have made it a firm favorite among members of the infamous Midnight Club, and given it a strong chance of dominating the street racing scene.
The minimalistic designs of the Gran Paradiso and Matterhorn would have been quite futuristic at the time of their respective debuts, but they would have been more easily accepted by the public in later years.
That would have made the Tenet more expensive to build than rivals - combined with the fact that it was out of character for the company, it would have been a guaranteed loss-maker in the day! Today, however, it would be seen as a curious, intriguing choice for those wanting a modern classic people mover.
