Carbon Motors had dreams of building the world's first purpose-built police car, but their grand ambitions seem to have collapsed.

Carbon Motors had dreams of building the world's first purpose-built police car, but their grand ambitions seem to have collapsed.

The Indianapolis Business Journal is reporting the company has pulled their equipment from a former Visteon plant they were leasing from the city of Connersville. The company's lease was set to expire and Carbon Motors reportedly didn't seek an extension to continue renting the space. As a result, city workers have removed the "Carbon Motors Drive" street sign and painted over the Carbon Motors logos around the plant.

More interestingly, Carbon Motors' website is currently down and the company appears to have pulled their Facebook, Twitter and YouTube pages.

The bizarre turn of events comes just months after Carbon Motors unveiled their TX7 Multi Mission Vehicle (MMV) which was slated to feature a V8 diesel engine and a six-speed automatic transmission. The TX7 MMV was supposed to go into production later this year, but that isn't looking too promising at this point.
