torquemada, THANKS for posting that video...
It proves my point exactly.
What gets your arm hair on end when you see that video is the sound of that spectacularly tuned engine. It makes you want to drive and let the revs climb and sing.

At no time did I ever think to say, wow that electric motor supplemental system sure sounds great.

taking that to the n'th degree that e11ys wants, and say all cars will be pure electric down the road. The day the sound of an electric motor can stir the emotions like the sound of that 800 HP Ferrari engine at 8000+ rpm will be the day hell freezes over.

Or does the sound of Ferrari engine at full song just irritate you?

There is plenty of reasons not to like a transition to EV, but that is another thread. The sounds of a sports car are at least half of what make it a joy to drive.
