This image was included with factory sales literature for NSU motorcycles.  Not sure but, it looks like it could be a race bike made to sell to the general public.

Cartercar company 1905-1915.

Cartercar had 3 homes before its demise in 1915.  The first location was in Jackson Michigan, the second was in Detroit and the final location was Pontiac (pictured).  The company was bought by GM in 1909 and the Cartercar was discontinued in 1915.  GM used the Pontiac factory to build Oaklands which were deemed a more desirable product.
