    Unless it performs like a McLaren P1 …nope

  2. crazy how everyone kind of poopoos on the NSX at the time, now your seeing a hybrid corvette being worked on.I really was expecting GM to go this way much later on with the corvette, like next gen possibly. They sure are moving quick, as if mid engine wasnt a big enough leap.

  3. Yes Corvette electric SUV!

    I’m finally getting my new drive battery for my Bolt EV

  5. I have gone for a few years to the Car Shows at the Henry Ford in Dearborn. Seeing such a vast array of classic cars I have hard time they are going away. Which is great

    Looking forward to my Corvette electric SUV. !!

  7. To Keith Barry point about a fun sports car that challenges us a bit but not overkill; how about a Mazda Miata or Toyota GR86/Subaru BRZ? Higher up the food chain would be a slightly older Porsche Carrera 2S – 997 with manual shifter.

  8. Great episode. When asked “Which of today’s vehicles will be future classics?,” Jen said none (if I recall correctly) because the electronics will not be available. We see this happening with the Tesla Roadster. Autonomous vehicles will become even more of an appliance. Nobody will remember the last pod they rode in.

  9. What could possibly go wrong? 🙂
