Also take it easy on electric motors, they are more or less fantastic. Instead point the finger at batteries and electrical storage devices. They are terrible and are the main hinderance to electric or hybrid performance cars.

If cars could have extension cords, all the top models would be electric.
They pull this off with bumper cars, why not real cars?

Brilliant.

We could have pantographs for highway cruising that charge while you drive, and only use battery power when you leave a main thoroughfare.

This sounds just like the Jun Supra. This is not a positive or negative comment, just an observation. Just wished it sounded more like an F355 with an exhaust (closest car I've heard next to an LFA for sounding like a Formula 1 car).

While I'm sure that's a reason, they very specifically state they designed the electric motor and power control system for filling in the gaps in the torque curve left by the turbo powerplant (i.e. lag compensation/throttle response improvement).

I don't think anybody should be allowed to complain about WRX side mirrors anymore... these ones are comical!
