You know, there is something to be said for that. LOL Even though it may perform as well as we're being told it will, there will always be that missing factor when it comes to electric cars. I do love the sounds a well tuned ICE makes.

Mike, sound is easy to provide. Performance like that is not.

They already feed engine noise into the passenger compartment on Camaros etc., they'd just have to synthesize it on an electric car - pretty easy to do and to synchronize with engine speed.

I'm not an oldster, but I might be approaching that threshold. I LOVE the sound of an ICE as well, but the looks, "utility" (I could handle 4 seats in a car like this, but let's face it, NO ONE is riding in the back), performance, and ecomenatlism of it make it so that I think I can forget the sound. And as was mentioned you can get any sound you want it to make piped in for your enjoyment.

I'm not a youngster, but this kind of car doesn't hurt my feelings and make me all nostalgic.

This Sky's not perfect, but it's perfect...for me
