BTW, that is a sexy body shell. I can't wait to hear from someone that has tried it out when they are delivered.

This thing looks great and I am really excited for it.  I just hope I actually see one of these driving down the street in California some day.

Don't they have a real one built that they can take a picture of instead of using a computer rendering?

How about an omni-fuel, external combustion engine?

They have the little video showing a running prototype:

But, it looks like they haven't made a real body yet, just the plug to make a mold for the body.

I have heard of these external cumbustion engines before but they are not within typical consumer reach just yet. Another interesting technology around the corner is micro-turbine powerplant.


But in the mean time, I'd would rather just love to drive around listening to a big turbo spool maybe even with this decal over the fuel cell/door.

I wonder what producers of hemp fuel do with all the waste product (everything but seeds)... SR?

Only the seed is used to make the fuel, then the leftovers goes to feed pigs, etc.

Similar to how cannabis plants are bred for lots of cannabinoids, hemp plants are bred for attributes suitable to industrial purposes, and have very little cannabinoids. You won't be getting high at all (or at least very much) off of hemp.

Unless you're making fuel from the seeds of cannabionoid varieties. But we stray from the topic.

Except most high cannabanoid varieties have few to no seeds since their production uses the same resources as the drug production.

Industrial hemp will only give you a headache.

Did I miss something about the odometer or is it just the fact that its modular and could be adjusted?

It looks like an analog clock from the 90's. Or now. Almost frighteningly plain.

It would drive the teenagers wild. So new and impressive!

Any new vehicle of mine is going to be modular, whether wikispeed or some future competitor.

Pay a someone to service and fix your car? Pay them to assemble it? Pay for an entriely new car when new technologies become available?

Hell no. Go wikispeed!
