Neil,

I've been following your build on both the Ecomoddder and the Aptera sites. The Aptera site is giving me error messages. Have they shut down?

Stan

Aptera is indeed out of business.

On December 2, 2011, Aptera went into chapter 7 liquidation.

It's been taken over by the Chinese though ...

Isn't it now called "Zaptera," or is that the "Aptera USA" part?

I guess the name makes some sense, considering the company owns Zap cars. I prefer Aptera, though.

I have no idea why, but the Aptera Forum server seems to be MIA/crashed. If anybody knows how to contact the administrator of the Forum, please do so!

A couple of years ago, someone reported that the sponsor of Aptera Forum seemed to have abandoned it. I wonder if a financial influx is required? I hope it can be brought back up.
