    Go on, admit it!

    I think an electric car would be brilliant in city driving, especially one as quick as that. But that doesn't mean it ticks all the boxes a V8 does not does it mean it can do everything a V8 can do

    Did anyone perhaps see the TFL Youtube clip where they had the Tesla on the rollers? Pretty interesting result.

    that thing running is amazing...

    but back to the topic, swapping electric motors into older model cars is something to look forward to...
    Imagine a 400nm motor in something like a SJ, or a Nissan 1400

    I have to admit...even though it is still horribly expensive, on my bucket list is to convert my 59 Beetle to electric one day. No need for major power, the same or slightly more than it has now will work for me.

    production car parts will be expensive for a while still....

    maybe an old electric forklift setup is more obtainable

    "Luckily" I am pretty broke at the moment anyway.

    But yeah, for what I am envisaging I don't need massively powerful motor.

    Oh well...nice to dream.
