If I had the money I'd buy one. I just read that it can do 0-60 in 1.9 seconds. That's F'ing crazy.I would never buy one, but damn, that's some acceleration.
Correct me if my assumption is wrong, but I take that you don't like Tesla since you'd rather have 2 Demons?If that was the case, I'd buy another Demon.
I'll love the innovation when I can afford it.Correct me if my assumption is wrong, but I take that you don't like Tesla since you'd rather have 2 Demons?
How can you not love their innovation and how much they're pushing the technological boundaries? All of this is being done without using gasoline as well. It's honestly amazing!
Unfortunately we'll eventually lose the V8 engine, but there's a lot more overall to gain from their innovations. For example, imagine if the Telsa battery could be mated to a Demon. You could switch the car to "commuter" mode to drive in the city on the battery and switch to"Demon" mode for track days and run it on gas...the possibilities are endless.

Yup. We are only 10-15 years out from near 0 new internal combustion cars being made imo. Only exception I can see to this is if the elements needed for all those batteries becomes a huge bottle neck. But seems like engineers are pretty damn smart at finding a way around raw element limitations. New battery tech and such.Electric will be the next brute force . Your grand kids (and maybe your kids) will look at our muscle cars as if they were horse and buggy.
When I drove the slower Tesla (2 years ago).. I knew then that the internal combustion engine days are numbered. It seemed having all power ready at 1 mph was how a car should be. It seemed so natural.
Look at the video the OP posted. The acceleration looked like the video was played at 3x speed when he floored it. Crazy.
Hah! Maybe so.I think you guys have been drinking the Electric Kool-Aid.
All of that is highly debatable, particularly the looks department.Hah! Maybe so.
All I know is that 100% my next commuter level car will be electric... maybe a bolt or a volt. They cost less to run, less maintenance, and look decent now days.
Because I don't want to or can't own two cars. Regular people will find them too expensive compared to gas cars.So why wouldn't you for a commuter?
Electrically assisted, maybe, but otherwise this statement is false.And now all the highest performance cars for the rich guys to play with are moving toward electric, not because it's environmentally friendly, but because they are faster.
Europe is irrelevant to the US car market.Add to this that entire European nations have laws in effect which will ban internal combustion within the next 20 years, and China is talking about doing the same, and the writing is on the wall.
