  2. As yet I am not sold on the electric / hybrid motors though I reckon its only a matter of time before we see many of them on the roads. I remember when truck companies laughed at LPG diesel hybrids now you see a fair few of them.
  3. Quite the Trabant.

    Revisit them if/when the Tesla sedan ever rolls off the production line

  7. Oh yeah I will keep a weather eye on this type of car especially when its mostly local mileage I am putting on the clock most of the time these days.

    Whatever happened to that "two moving parts" engine (cam, valves and pistons all built into a central rotating shaft)? It was supposed to revolutionize internal combustion engines... Can't recall the name...

    Wankel rotary that was used in the masda? They couldn't get the economy out of it. There is another one called the Sterling engine but I don't recall the problems with it.
