Re: Tesla / Electric Vehicles

Top speed has indeed become irrelevant, or at least, less relevant. I read an interview a while back of Stephan Winkelmann, then boss of Lamborghini, who said that top speed was becoming less important as it really couldn't be used, and the company focus was moving to prioritising handling, accelera...

Re: Tesla / Electric Vehicles

Aye. And though £130,000 is a lot of money, it's a bargain for a thousand horses. Though I'm sure that a new Bentley will never be a bargain - quite rightly so of course - they're well known for packing a refined heavyweight knockout punch to all would be imposters. And Bentley have of course announ...

Re: Tesla / Electric Vehicles

Exciting isn't it! I see the 7 seater Model X has 1,020bhp. At the infancy of the EV thing, we're already at practical family cars and SUVs with over a thousand horsepower! Those are words that yesterday just wouldn't have been in the same sentence ... where will we be in say 5 years time? The arms ...

Re: Tesla / Electric Vehicles

Thrilled though I am with the Model 3, I'm gonna have to put in some overtime! Look at the stats for the refreshed Model S: 1,100bhp!!! Acceleration from 0-60 mph: <1.99 s Quarter mile: <9.0 s Quickest 0-60 mph and quarter mile acceleration of any production car ever. Unusable top speed aside, those...

Good luck Stuart.
Trying to plan 6 months ahead when it's impossible to know what 6 days ahead looks like is no enviable task.

Re: International Weekend 2021

I've somehow missed this post... but having just skimmed through the latest club mag that has arrived today, I noted that the international was at Wroughton and came on here to ask about dates...

And there it is in big and bold :D :D

Here's hoping to make up for lost time.

Re: Running out of electricity in your EV

How has that happened in what appears to be a busy city??
I can only guess that the driver forgot their cable cos electricity in a city tends to be readily available...

Re: Is Harry teasing us?

I like his vids too. Nothing too flashy and nicely balanced. These resto mod cars puzzle me a bit. I understand the modern reliability aspect, but that only lasts for so long. In say 10 years time, such cars are neither classic nor modern; I'm not sure to whom they will then appeal. I say, take an a...

This TVR wedge looks a lot sharper in real life than it does in this grainy zoomed in dash cam image.

Re: Electric v Petrol/Diesel inc. Classic - Great Video

I wouldn't be as pessimistic as that. In a sense, little will change. The costs of EVs will continue to fall as will their charging times. Charging availability will continue to increase as will range. But any govt of any colour is gonna need the ££. In general terms road pricing, if that's what hap...

Re: Electric v Petrol/Diesel inc. Classic - Great Video

I think you're quite right there Kevin. And far from addressing the elephant in the room of increasing populations, some countries, such as Japan, are offering tax invectives to actually increase theirs... But to get back to EVs...I'm sure running costs will no doubt balance out in future due to roa...

Re: Electric v Petrol/Diesel inc. Classic - Great Video

I'd love to go electric as I could charge for free having solar on the roof but honestly, just can't afford too I guess the first thing to consider is whether or not a new car, however its fueled, is wanted. Then much depends on how much is spent on fuel. If it's say £50 a week, then free leccy wou...

Re: Electric v Petrol/Diesel inc. Classic - Great Video

I was able to watch the video earlier.
Good viewing and I'm quite reassured really that it largely chimes with my previous posts.

There must be others on this forum with ev experience to contribute here...?
