The Forecar was a body style used by many British and European manufacturers of light cars and motorcycles in the Edwardian era.

In this type of body the passenger seat was placed in front of the engine usually above the front axle leaving the occupants extremely vulnerable in the case of a collision. The driver's seat was behind and usually higher than that for the passengers. Weather protection was rarely provided. Both three and four wheeled forecars were made.
