    Some nice shots of what it potentially looks like.

    0-60 in 3 seconds. Amazing. Companies like Porsche are going to have trouble, they rely on their SUV's to float the sports cars, but with electrics every make will be able to compete with Porsche's SUV's....

    Germans are following the traditional laptop batteries route to EVDom. They are just not that innovative.

    I expect they will electrify their SUV's. But their problem is that right now the performance SUV competition is pretty small. If you want a performance SUV you have very little choice. Now virtually any make fielding electric SUV's will have fast 0-60 and I assume all will handle well with the battery packs down low.... More choice is bound to steal sales.

    I think electrics will upend the performance world, especially the high end. Stick enough batteries in a Camry and it will have a 2 second 0-60 and handle well, might just loose some top end due to aerodynamics. It's going to make a $300k Ferrari look pretty questionable when its performance isn't that much better than a Camry.

    I'm surprised we haven't seen one yet based on the updated photos.

    I'm thinking...Either you're scratching your private parts like hell, or the vehicle can crawl(sideways a bit maybe) like a crab.
