Hi,

This show is at least 6 months old, and I wish they included the Aptera. I love Car Talk, but this show was a little thin on innovations.

Nova

As my neighbor Bob would say,"It's way out ahead of nothin'". It is one of the few auto-related programs to even mention aerodynamics,and its coverage of Rocky Mountain Institute's "Hypercar" with Cd0.16 and windtunnel (CFD) image may be some viewers first ever introduction to aero related issues.So yeah,we'd all have done different with it,but I've got to give them credit for the "distance" they did cover in the short period of time allotted.
