I don’t see it ever getting a manual especially after looking at the cutaway and how little space there is a for a pedal assembly and hydraulics. That’s on top of the fact that they would have to figure out how to connect a shifter and where to fit a gearbox.

Thanks! I think that going hybrid is the right move as it opens up a lot more performance options for the car.

The ones with the plugs sticking out near the frunk area are not hybrids according to what I’ve heard. Those plugs are actually used so that they can quickly plug a jump starter into the car for the standard 12v battery.

I’m sure that there are some design ideas they noticed from others but there are only so many ways to do a mid engine vehicle design.

Didn’t think about that but it will definitely make it easier for adjustable upper mounts to be made although the factory camber adjustment on the control arms with the shims is pretty solid on its own.

Thanks! I’m all over the place but I always try to pitch stuff here when I can.

There is lots of space for charge air coolers from what I saw but my bet is on turbos instead of a supercharger.

There is a much bigger market for a car like this than one that is full EV.

Have not heard of any plug and I wouldn’t expect one. This is likely going to be all regen.

I don’t think that we’ll see that stack in any of their production cars. Likely to end up as a crate option for drag racing builds if it gets released.

They’ve been taking it to various events and shows. Maybe it will be at Daytona for the Rolex 24?
