I totally agree that Electric will be the way forward but........ I'm a cynical old fart...... the Petrochemical manufacturers and governments will do whats best for them not the climate. Hybrid tech will be the next big thing now that the big diesel scam has run its course. Electric won't take over from combustion just yet IMHO

I can run a £110k Porsche for <£300 per month car tax (hybrid - my Mrs could run it for <£180/mth), no real benefit in me getting a tesla especially when I do 40k miles pa the government is already up to its old tricks lol Its supposed to get >100MPG Floor The fact I will probably never actually plug it in has nothing to do with it Bandit


It will be an interesting next 5 years!! Confused
You get the same problems with EV's.
The 30Kwh Nissan leaf is supposed to do 150 miles per charge, but 110 is the true range, driving very steadily!! Very Happy
Twas ever thus!!!
The big change now is that governments and oil companies are investing in Electric power, wind power and Solar power!!
All manufacturers are now suddenly seeing the change and not fighting it.
There are some lovely cars in the pipeline!! Not an oil pipeline!! nooo

Hi Henry,
I saw your car today and you will be VERY happy with it. It is a superb refurb job and I think you will have a lot of fun with it. Let me know if you ever want to sell it and I'll trade in the wife!

Keep in touch once you have taken delivery, I want to know how you are getting on.

Went out in the Beetle today and boy that thing moves along.

Once a Rally driver, always a Rally driver!!

This hurts my head! I don't want to like it but I love it!

I mean its a beautiful car, no doubt. My heart would miss the noise and smells of an engine, but I really admire the engineering.

Excellent work, and so much better than a Tesla.

Thanks for posting Thumb

Yeah Beats a Tesla hands down in the appeal department and I understand the rationale, just not sure I'm ready to loose the flat six symphony yet. Putting the propulsion issue to one side, from a purely visual perspective it's a highly desirable object. Hat's off to you for even thinking of going down this route worship
