The Transporter Portable Computer -- April Fool's Day, 1985
Byte magazine featured a new portable computer, available from the Honda Corporation, called the "Transporter":
The first truly transportable computer. With a few simple twists, you can transform the Transporter from a portable computer (with full keyboard, 24-line by 80-column display, and two microfloppy-disk drives) into a single-passenger automobile... The Transporter is 100 percent compatible with the popular Toyota Corolla and runs on most operating roads.

Byte later received a call from a USA Today reporter inquiring about the Transporter.
