Sometimes you just have to drive…..

October 18, 2008

I would love an electric car. Technology isn’t quite there yet, so they’re not practical for long journeys. My grand tourer of choice would be a Porsche 911, one of the most iconic cars in my view, although out of my league and a tad too thirsty to e driven without guilt.

However, there are electric cars that are starting to cut the mustard. Even some that are faster than a 911.

Have a look at the Treehugger post linked to above, and make up your own mind. They might be faster, but boy have they been hit with the ugly stick. The Shelby actually looks OK, but the much lauded Tesla and the Tango are fugly!

Trundl, but trundl in style I say. We need a balance, an equilibrium of technology and form (and economy!). When these arrive, I’ll be ready with my cheque book.
