Now I’m not gonna sugar coat it, I’m pissed….royally pissed.

People on this board think that all EV owners are the same. That’s not the case! We are not a monolith. ICE cars may be cool, but they ain’t practical.

EVs are practical. EV DRIVERS ARE PRACTICAL PEOPLE. Come to think of it, I think EVs are pretty cool. Not to mention very diverse.

>>25924559
It's the exact opposite, they avoid stealing easily identifiable vehicles because they're either going to chop them up and resell the parts, or ship them over seas
Why the fuck would you draw attention to yourself stealing a bright purple truck when there are 20 times as many black or silver trucks that will net you the same profit?

I want a Lexus LS400 so much bros. I have the money, is it worth getting it and keeping it for the rest of my life? I’m not gonna daily it, I have a hybrid Camry, I just want a landbarge with a V8.

4age is a really stupid idea, it makes like 120hp stock, up to 170/180 with reasonable mods and like 100ft-lbs of torque. you are aware that the z31 weighs ~3000lbs?
NA k24 isn't as bad, but still, way less torque than the vg30. enjoy revving it to the moon constantly I guess

I grew up being really into cars but could never justify buying a car until I graduated college. When I graduated, I bought a used automatic 2013 mazda3 with 80k miles for a great price since I wanted to be financially smart about it since I moved to a new state. I've always wanted to learn stick and own something small and fun like a Miata but since I don't know how to drive stick, I didn't do it right off the bat. I recently got a raise making 90k at my job so I'm saving around $3500 a month after expenses. The first problem I'm having is how to switch cars if I do. the Mazda can be traded in at a dealership for ~7k which I'm not 100% sure is a good price or I could buy a Miata and sell it private later. A dealership near me is selling an 03 Miata with 58k miles but they want 15k which seems high. Alternatively, there's someone selling a 04 Miata with 165k miles for 6500. I think I can get a better price private party but I'm not sure how big a deal high miles is. Would it be realistic for me to buy either and learn stick before driving it home either from the prior owner or a friend. I'm also a little torn on if I should even get rid of the mazda3 in the current car market, it's been a very reliable car and for an automatic, it's a ton of fun.

Yes, battery technology was basically stagnant from the moment Governments started subsidizing fossil fuels in WW1, until pretty recently.
On the other hand, once money did start going back into battery research there was pretty rapid progress.

In 1999 the best lead acid battery pack available weighed 533kg, and stored 16kWh, a little better than half a gallon of gas in a car that cost $100k (not that GM sold it).
In 2008 the best lithium ion battery pack weighed about the same and stored 56kWh, about one and two thirds a gallons of gas in a car that cost $80k.
In 2017 the best lithium ion battery pack weighed 480kg and stored 76kWh, about the same as two and a half gallons of gas in a car that cost $50k.

Now the best battery pack tech puts about 100kWh (3 gallon equivalent) into 480kg, high-end cars are starting to ship out with 200kWh (6 gallon equivalent) packs, and cars with 60kWh packs can be found under $25k.
We're kind of where gas cars were in the early 1920s when they started to really put things together, but there hasn't been a single vehicle that really puts everything together for a price affordable for the lower class like the Austin 7.

Holden engineers made a V12 version of the HFV6 for a caddilac supercar that never came together. 650hp in NA trim and I can't remember the torque figure but it was diesel truck type numbers.

Why did GM chop Holden off at the knees again? Was it because they were just too good?
