I find it easier to be active when the goal isn’t simply to do something that’s active. Taking a mountain bike out on the trails and learning how to make the machine move smoothly and playfully or learning martial arts are more meaningful ways to be active because you at least acquire reusable skills while you burn Read more

He said batteries, not electrict motors. Porsche has not had batteries like this, on this scale, for the same amount of time as Tesla. Tesla has not only been using batteries like this, but actively developing them.

It isn’t the outward visibility; previous gen had same problem and outsold even the Mustang. The problem is that it’s simply hideous looking, full-stop. That is fatal to sales of emotional vehicles like sports cars.

As a millennial, I associate HR-Vs, Pilots, RAV-4s, 4Runners, and their ilk as the “I give up on driving anything neat” parent cars. A Chrysler Pacifica is cooler.
