Your arguments are spot on. Also, the majority of your objections are predicated on the idea that California is mandating BEVs. They aren’t. They’re mandating zero-emission vehicles.

Prettier than a normal 812? Yep. Prettier than a Viper? I’m not sure. Prettier than some of the middle-generation Vipers, sure. Prettier than the latter day super-aggro Vipers? I can see it. Read more

Yup. #3 for me, since the building I live in has made no effort to make electricity accessible in the garage which holds about 30 cars. And since it’s a rental property tenants don’t want to spring for it themselves. I’d very much consider an electric if my space offered charger access, California needs to incentivize Read more

All great questions. This article should be a thought exercise along the lines of “what would happen if the ban went into effect tomorrow?”

Instead, we have from-the-hip word vomit with absolutely zero critical thought put into it. Like most things Raph and Erik spit out, this take seems to be nothing more than being Read more

I, and legions of other former Saab drivers agree with you. Though modern traction and stability control have certainly made RWD massively easier to deal with given suitable tires. What I don’t want is the added cost (upfront, in repairs, and in gas), weight, and complexity of AWD.

Recharge time will likely be the same, if not slightly faster than current cars. While the battery capacity will likely be higher, the new cells can take a charge faster without generating as much heat - so supercharging will be pretty quick.

This is right in the transition to being a midlife crisis purchase. It was that “attainable dream car” for kids in high school at around the turn of the century. Those “kids” are now creeping up on 40, and $6200 USD is an approachable number for someone looking to pick up that car they “always wanted.” Read more
