I like it. Those are the best angles. From the front it could be mistaken for an Audi.

Bonus: My favorite unfinished cathedral.

From an Ecommoder perspective, the same body with 10th the horsepower and 10th 1/50th the price would be preferable.

Not exactly an unusual car at first glance (just a G1 Insight with some aero work), but his has 550HP @ 10,500rpm. He's working on a 950HP version now, trying to set land speed records.

I you haven't seen this,when you do,you'll know why they insist on roll-cages and all the other safety paraphernalia.

Saw this one up close and personal, and watched it do loops around a parking lot, yesterday at the Simeone Museum.

The new improved Aptera is certainly very interesting:

That new Aptera looks like it might have a lower drag when it was sailing on a crosswind. The wind tunnel data could be extra interesting if well analysed. The last time I crossed Kansas, I'd rather have had a landsailer. It would have done highway speed.

I wonder if those wheel spats 'n' stuff invalidate the premise of the low-drag form?
