This is fun. Someone has calculated/modelled the perfect S-shaped turn for parking your car.

You'll need to measure a few things first: the width of your car, your turn radius at a paricular rotation of the steering wheel and exactly where your midpoint is between the front and rear wheels.

The author of this 1 page long paper is Dr Rebecca Hoyle
