You have to admit this car sure looks awesome. I put a deposit on this yesterday. They e-mailed me and said a top and A/C would be options. I now have deposits on 5 vehicles and none on the way. I better look for a bigger garage! I sure hope 2018 will bear fruit.

The Ampere and Sondors are both to wide for my needs, but sweet styling on both!  Is the Ampere front wheel drive?

My next vehicle is a reservation!

No, it's RWD. The website says it has a Carbon Kevlar Belt Drivetrain.

Yet another vehicle announcement that isn't in 'regular production', but they will happily take your money right away.

It seems like the Solo concept is really catching on!
