The 918 has more ground clearance, so things like wedged manhole covers won't complicate things.

But seriously, about that color—a warm gray pearl over a silver base, right?

This was pretty sweet on Top Gear. I like the P1 better, though.

You may look at this and see a Porsche, I see a Meyers Manx Kickout SS on a swing-axle pan with the 36hp pea shooters at the center of that diffuser. With the flat Black and shiny red scallops, it needs Moon disks. I'd prefer Molten Metal in Plastidip.



It definitely needs the exhaust tips in the headrests and 'in-hub' style electric motors inboard on either side of the transaxle. Ya gotta have a dream.

Edit: OK, the 36hp engine is really light—just move it back 1 1/2" and sandwich in a 72hp Protean Electric motor (when they ship product).

That sounds like what killed my Prelude.

Except Mom convinced me to take it to our mechanic, who said that his wife has done worse.

"It just needs new crossmembers!"
"'Kay, fixed that, but I happened to see that it needs [...], but after that it will be good to go!"

Totaling $2,400 on a car that cost $2,500 four years and 72,000 miles previous, which then dropped the transmission.

If only I had known you guys ten years ago! I could have done some of that myself!

The project is interesting at all, but I'd like to see some real-world mileage figures.
