Almost all cars drive with only one wheel. Think about it this way- if both wheels are turning at the same speed and you turn a corner, the one on the outside of the curve travels a longer distance than the other, so the inside one would have to spin. Some higher performance cars are set up so that under load both wheels spin, or deff's can be modified like that. eg burnouts. Have a look at this http://www.howstuffworks.com/differential.htm

Open differential. Power goes to the wheel with the least traction - like 90% of the other cars on the road.
