Like the Hummer was developed from the Humvee, an earth rover car should be produced (by NASA and Rover?) as a souped-up Mars Rover replica. At twice the original size, a terra rover would make a trendy two-seater convertible for fun city cruising and parking, or a superior terrain vehicle in the woods
The electric motors at the wheels could be driven by a fuel cell or hybrided with a combustion engine. The Mars Rovers 100 watt power would be increased a thousand times to 134 hp and its speed five hundred times from 5 cm/s to 90 km/h.
With its distinctive flat top and unique suspension and steering, finding signs of life would not be a problem; curious admirers would swarm around the space car.

||With included traffic periscope?

||/\ Heavy lifting! Just drive over/under whatever, and draw that mother up! +
||The disadvantage is that every schmuck will snatch one up and they won't be cool anymore. If they're really expensive, to keep the riffraff from buyin' 'em, I could maybe see it.
||I'll buy that. I mean, really, I'd buy that.
||Mars Rovers already have up to 8 wheels.
