it won't be a real car until the Stig can run it on Top Gear!

Will it burst into glorious flames when the electrical system gets wet?

I guess if you start an electric car company it helps if you name it after a scientist.

/NEDRA ftw

I know its a different car, but I was stunned when I moved back home to VT, and saw a Tesla RoasterSport cruising the street. Then I noticed the Iraq Veteran tags on it and realized it was some guardsman squandering his deployment money. Still, there are worse things he could have spent it on.

I though hybrid was the new black for high end sports cars. Isn't Ferrari and Porch working on or about to release one.

Honda, too -- the new NSX will be a hybrid. But they use the electric motors for increased low end torque, not for improved fuel economy.

I really doubt the 200+ top speed. A top speed like that usually takes more power. The electric motors don't count since at that speed they're not going to produce much power and the batteries would go dead quickly.

But, it isn't like ill ever own one so doesn't much matter.

Subby you say it like it was hard to look better than a Prius.

FTFA: "Outwardly, the Kepler Motion follows classic supercar design form"

Yeah, since it stole the front end of a McLaren, the rear of a Ferrari F40, and the sides of a Pagani.

What the hell is a "ground-hugging rear spoiler"???

If your rear spoiler is "hugging" the ground, you've just crashed your car.

Like the other guy said, don't get it wet.

The car? Or Subby?

The engine/exhaust does not have an inviting sound.

Beat me to it. I mean, not that I'd turn one away if someone delivered it to my driveway for free, but that's the most uninspired copypasta car design I've seen in years. It's as if they got the tech parts out of the way, how the engine would work, then used Photoshop to grab bits of other vehicles and slapped them together for their final look.

I get a stiffy from these old designs:

Nice! Also, I prefer my cars British coach-built, Italian designed, with 7.2 litres over 8 cylinders
