PSHDan944tPete please 🤫🤫🤫🤫🤫🤫🤫🤫🤫🤫🤫🤫🤫🤫🤫🤫dont mention electric ⚡️ cars.........It gives me nightmares!!! 😩😩😩oh, I don't know?, if money was no object, I could go for the new Tesla roadster, 0-60 in 1.9 secs, IIRC a standing 1/4 of 8 secs, top speed of over 250mph and a range of approx 650 miles...Pete
marojojoemFellow petrolheads, even I can see the future and for better or worse its electric because sooner or later we have to stop taking carbon from the ground
PSH but why have everything electric when it shortens the range so much? Pete
blade7marojojoemFellow petrolheads, even I can see the future and for better or worse its electric because sooner or later we have to stop taking carbon from the ground You and Greta should spread your message to places like India, China and Russia. They haven't realised yet that massively subsidised electricity production means a few get rich while the masses pay twice for their energy.

You and Donald would surely get on, not sure about me and Greta though. Would she approve of a 944 Turbo?
Paul 290TIf your countrie's electricity generation is largely fossil fuel powered (UK, Germany, US, to name but a few) then electric cars produce more CO2 than equivalent sized diesel cars over an 8 year life cycle, IF you consider the CO2 released as a result of manufacturing the vehicles as well as running. Which if you care about the environment you should take into account. That is not my unsubstantiated opinion. Several studies have been done that show this. The most notable, a Tesla vs an E Class diesel ran for 8 years in Germany. The Telsa produced 30% more CO2 than the E Class. 8 years was chosen as it's the anticipated life of the Tesla battery pack. By the time the UK runs its national grid on predominantly none fossil fuels, decades away, any electric car currently purchased will have been scrapped off anyway. So right now, nobody in the UK should be buying electric cars, if truly caring for the environment is their agenda. And whilst on the subject of the national grid, who will pay/when is it going to be upgraded so that it has enough power carrying capacity to charge everyone electric car at 6pm when they get home? A larger capacity national grid is a huge undertaking, makes HS2 seem like a backyard project. Paul
