I would settle for a Saturn Sky. Still looks great.
If Gm electrifies a different 2 seater like the Saturn Sky/Pontiac Solstice, then it could mean a less expensive car overall. I forgot about those 2 sweaters. Maybe I should just find a used one and try to electrify it myself.

EV is a public relations football in Europe.

This is the part of Euro BS that disturbs me. They say blah blah blah we want changes but when it comes to putting your money where your mouth is the demand isn't there. Sales of the Volt/Ampera were abysmal and I expect the same will be true of the Bolt/Ampera-E when all is told.

Well, GM did trademark a name for a plug in Vette.

This is what will sell, E or no E:



I'm betting on a hybrid 'ray.

.
American football, what we know as soccer (futbol), or rugby/Australian rules football.

How come everything I want I cannot get? I want a Holden Commodore Wagon with a 6.2L V8 and a stick shift, Chevy insists on giving us the wimpy Malibu V6. I want an electric vette, Gm gives us icers. I want a Voltec Subyukonade or at a minimum a hybrid Suburban or Silverado, and GM discontinued their truck hybrids. I want a Voltec or Boltec AWD Equinox, and we get nada.

The Elextra just might generate some interest...:)

Somehow I don't see the old farts on this forum climbing in and out of that car. I'll give it a shot, but I doubt the wife will approve. No way this becomes her daily driver and I already have a pickup truck in the garage I don't drive very often (2008 with 10K miles).

Wait...... sorry. We were dreaming weren't we? My bad. :rolleyes:

Maybe they'll open like the Porsche Mission E...:)
That's great for a show car prototype. But without some pillar between the front and rear doors, the side impact protection won't be good at all. I do hope they make the mission-e as when growing up a had always wanted a 911 or 928, but now that I've gone electric my dreams for a Porsche have changed. If Porsche doesn't hurry my dream car might be a Tesla, NSX, i8 or something else. All I need is one very do-able banner year for stocks and mutual funds and I'm pulling the trigger.
