I always treat every Green traffic light as a Give Way. Mind you, we have Red, Red and Amber, then Green, so anyone coming through on their Red has well run the lights (like didn't see it!). My car has no side airbags, so if I get T-Boned I am well dead.

Here ya' go:


Published on Aug 4, 2016 — The D-type Jaguar from RCR. The XKE was a D-type with clothes on. I could dig one of these or the XKSS. Jaguar built 25 more of those ones but they sold out at US$2.5million each.

RCR use respectable fabrication techniques and would surely undercut the price. An EV conversion with the Wolftronics 2-speed planetary gearbox and a pouch-cell battery would be sweet.

Would've been great if VW had made the Type 3 engine standard, clearing some space in the engine bay to eventually fit the battery there for example. When it comes to turning the Beetle into a hatchback, I guess the Brasília was the closest approach to that proposal. Well, it would clearly benefit from the Type 3 engine, since it would allow some useful load space.

Jaguar's electric E-type is going into production!

https://electrek.co/2018/08/23/jagua...ev-conversion/



Apparently they'll use many I-Pace components.
Whatever, as long as they stay true to the lines of the Zero Concept:


__________________
2011 Honda Insight + HID, LEDs, tiny PV panel, extra brake pad return springs, neutral wheel alignment, 44/42 PSI (air), PHEV light (inop), tightened wheel nut.
lifetime FE over 0.17 Gmeter or 0.1 Mmile.
