Any help would be great. Release the hounds!

Interesting. And a short development time.

All that electrickery takes up a lot of space. No spare? No thanks.
Be a long time before batteries match the energy density of petrol.

I wonder what sound it makes as it drives. A neighbour has an electric shopping trolley, almost ran me over twice in the lane, crept up on me. I hear the EU has mandated that they make a noise as of next year.

Suppose this is a shape of things to come. Well, better an electric TR6 than no TR6.

Yeah but the torque these can put out off the line can apparently put a V8 to shame, plus maintainance would be minimal. would miss the sound though. Cheers
