The Lotus Esprit was much the same. Awesome 0-60 but topped at 130 or so. Electric is cool but still out of reach. This thread was geared more for the Muscle cars of our era until now. Super Duties, Hemi's, Rats and so forth. The things in life that are not the most efficient and environment friendly. I would have to put a current Vette against the electric and re gear to run 130 topped out. The GN had a cutoff I believe at around 125 but could be easily re-geared for much less than the $85,000 orice difference! Post some guzzlers WTRSKIFREEK!

It does cost 100k, so it won't ever pay for itself in effeciency, but this is a "dream world" thread.
