Noel Casler Explains How Trump Corrupts Everyone in His Orbit
"People famously know that you worked on the apprentice with Donald Trump and, you know, started talking quite openly about a lot of things about him a long time ago, but you said what you're seeing from Trump's vast tentacles of corruption. Toadies on loan from Doug ducey acting sicko fans, you just said it should be very illuminating for those who wonder how Trump got away with so many crimes in his New York City days because people from New York are like, he's always been a crook. We've known that from day one, right? And you look right up through what's happening right now. You're like, oh, of course, he has somehow loyalists and people that are destroying evidence and God knows what, right? Absolutely. He's always had a skill, a 6th sense to attract men and some women around him that he could corrupt. You know, he can look into a crowd and see the kind of guys that are going to do his bidding. The dogs that hunt, so to speak. And that's what his security team was. You know, keep schiller was an NYPD sergeant rammer, who would knock down doors of drug dense in The Bronx, you know? He was the guy who knocked the door down. He went up to Trump in court and said, you need to hire me, right? And Trump hired him. And then when you're walking around with a detail of X NYPD cops, you get away with stuff in New York City, right? Because it's an impenetrable sort of wall of authority. And Trump knows that. And you know, we could probably get into it, but the Secret Service stuff seems very, I worked with a Secret Service ton tons. I did inaugurations. I did the tree lighting at The White House, all kinds of stuff, where the president was at. The Secret Service under Trump was a different Secret Service. You know, and I went to high school with Bobby engel, the guy he tried to choke in the back of the SUV, and he was like a marine kind of jarhead cop type. And that's the type that Trump will suck in. And it's almost like before they know it, they're doing his bidding. Do you know what I mean? Who is the guy? They all set out with the intention of being corrupted, but being in Trump's orbit will corrupt you by osmosis.

Democrats Are Losing Their Edge With Hispanic Voters
"Axios reports shifts in the demographics of the two party supporters, taking place before our eyes are arguably the biggest political story of our time. The big picture, Republicans are becoming more working class or as we call it the muscular class. And more multiracial. Democrats are becoming more elite and a little more white. Democrats hope for retaining power, rests on non white voters remaining a reliable part of the party's coalition. Democrats theory of the case collapses. If Republicans make even incremental gains with those voters. Quote, even small inroads with Hispanic voters could tip a number of Democrat held swing seats to the Republican Party. It certainly can hear in Arizona, for able to do that against the snake Mark Kelly. Democrats are statistically tied with Republicans among Hispanics on the generic congressional ballot. Democrats again held a 40 7 point lead with Hispanics during the 2018 midterms. Why is this happening? Democrat strategists say the party's biggest vulnerability is assuming the priorities of progressive activists are the same of those of working class voters. Quote, progressive activists led to push the cut, a police budgets, communities of color have borne the brunt of higher crime. Yeah, no kidding. They can't afford armed guards. They can't afford bulletproof SUVs. They're not flying private. They don't live in gated communities. They actually have to live through the misery created by JB pritzker, or Gavin Newsom,
The AP Interview: GM's Barra stands by ambitious EV pledge
"The CEO at General Motors is standing by a pledge on electric vehicles Mary Barra is predicting by the middle of this decade GM will sell more electric vehicles in the U.S. than the market leader Tesla Barra tells the AP her strategy is affordability You have to appeal to people that are in that 30 to $35,000 price range That's where the bolt is already there but the equinox is just a phenomenal vehicle Last year GM sold just 25,000 electric vehicles in the U.S. less than one tenth of the estimated 352,000 sold by Tesla Buying an EV is just better Because if you've had the chance to drive one of our electric vehicles they're fun to drive instant torque quiet And so I think there's a lot to offer Already GM is pledging to cut the starting price for the Chevy bolt small SUV to around $26,000 later this year Tesla's lowest price vehicle sells for about $60,000 I'm Ed
Thanks to the Left, There's Nothing Left to Destroy
"That the human race is not divided between male and female. Colossal. It is hard to imagine what is left because what is left being not what is left versus right, but what is remaining. Because there is not much left to destroy. I guess food supplies. When was the paper you sent me or maybe you didn't send me and I read it on my own? The dream of everybody living in a very small apartment and each eating under 2100 calories. What was this research paper published? It's in a technical magazine. The reported reason reported it, yes. That is the dream. We have people in Northern California who are letting out the air of SUVs.

The Common Denominator in the Latest Spate of Tragedies
"There's some interesting hubbub on social media about the highland park shooter, this weird kid, I've seen pictures of him, he doesn't look normal, stable. But nevertheless, of course, there's a normal kind of what is this politics, is he a trumpster, apparently he did go to a Trump rally, but he appears to have gone as a protester or a mocker at one point he's seen draping a flag over himself. Again, the question becoming is he putting the flag over himself because he's an America first patriot or the opposite that he's mocking the flag and doing it as a kind of sarcastic imitation of the so called maga movement. But you have a little different take on all this. You've been talking about what is the common denominator of all this? Yeah, so the common denominator of the not only this shooting, but the wagga Shaw massacre, which I don't know if you guys remember. And you've all done, but Daryl Brooks killed these people with his truck or his SUV or whatever it was, is as you feed. So obviously the weapon of choice was not the same. But what was the same is the fact that they're both lunatics. That is the same. So that is the common denominator between these two. However, the media chooses not to look at one and dwell on another. Obviously, they want they want to take away guns. They want to, they really want to criminalize anybody that gets guns, even though they say no, no, no, we're not going to do that. We're just doing it for, you know, tighten tighten the belt for these other people. The fact of the matter is a lunatic will use whatever. I mean, look at this guy that just killed the former prime minister of Japan. He made his own weapon. He made a gun himself. He's a

Media Follows a Hierarchy to Protect Cassidy Hutchinson
"There's this misconception out there that there's a double standard Of Trump would have done this then And I'm going to kind of go in that direction a little bit here So Cassidy soy's testimony under oath that the January 6th hearing is been just thoroughly eviscerated by facts Trump did not get in a limo He got an SUV so there's no way you were told he got in the limo by a Secret Service agent The language used the beast does not have Secret Service agency but talk She said she wrote a note that various other people are saying and willing to testify to you She didn't write the note They said they wrote the note and they were witnesses I mean these are not insignificant details So you know for a fact if this was a pro Trump person Now it wouldn't be because it's the January 6 star chamber and no pro Trump person is allowed to go up and testify right You're just not You're only allowed to be attacked But let's just say some pro Trump person was up there Rudy Giuliani whoever it may be and Giuliani put out a couple of damning statements like we have evidence that Nancy Pelosi personally called off the National Guard Let's say I'm not saying that happened I'm just saying just play the game with me for a moment You know for a fact that if Pelosi came out and disputed it the headline would read clown Rudy Giuliani loser discredited totally by brilliant wonderful Nancy Pelosi You know that would happen Everybody knows it Now you may say well that's a double standard because the media is now doing everything they can to protect cat to protect Cassidy small a It's not a double standard I can't say that enough It's a hierarchy There's a difference Liberals and their authoritarian totalitarian acolytes don't see it as a double standard They see it as exactly as authoritarians would We're in charge in your not plan a big one
Two Secret Service Agents Ready to Contradict Cassidy Hutchinson Story
"Reporting comes one day after a former Trump White House lawyer disputed Hutchinson's testimony about a handwritten statement she allegedly wrote on January 6th. Hutchinson testified that she wrote a statement for Trump to release during the capitol riot, however, former White House lawyer Eric hirschman insisted that he wrote the handwritten note present it to the committee during Hutchinson's testimony. The handwritten note of and I'm quoting note that Cassidy Hutchinson testified was written by her was in fact written by Eric hirschman on January 6th, 2021, this according to hirsch's hirschman spokeperson, part of hirsch Hutchinson's testimony are also at odds with members of the U.S. Secret Service, the most sensationalized aspect of hertz testimony was that Trump allegedly tried to take control of the presidential SUV's steering wheel and shouted expletives as Secret Service agents when they prevented him from doing so. However, shortly after Hutchinson's testimony, two Secret Service agents and the SUV, that day reportedly confirmed their intent to make statements under oath that would contradict Hutchinson's story. This is a sham guys. And while we're sitting here, you guys are struggling here. We just talked about how prices are going up for Independence
Brit Hume Rips January 6 'TV Production' Hearing
"Let's start with Britt Hume. Last night on Fox News with Brett bear, I said grab this because he is slamming the Nancy Pelosi one 6 committee after the hearsay testimony of miss Hutchinson cutting them 11. What it did do now that the testimony is being challenged is it shows why it's not a good idea to put witnesses on that without any cross examination or any viewpoints expressed from the other side of the issue when there is another side and certainly it is in this case. This is what the committee has decided it will do. It will put on a TV production, which is what it has done. And it seems to have tripped itself up on that because the testimony is now being disputed openly by the Secret Service. First of all, I said the beast, but it was the smaller Secret Service SUV, but either way, how does this happen in a committee that's that scripted and that laying all of this methodically out, they call this surprise hearing and then they trip on this and it opens the door to critics of the committee from the beginning. Well, I think it's consistently what the committee has done though. When you think about it, they'll call witnesses before the committee and the witness will be sitting there and then the committee will proceed to play excerpts from the deposition, the video deposition of the same witness. It's a very peculiar way to proceed. You know, I've been around Washington a while. I covered the hill for a long time. I don't remember any committee where all the members were chosen by one party, even the minority parties representatives. And they're all on the same page. They all agree. Well, if you don't have any dissenting voices, this is the kind of thing going to happen. Some mistake. After two of the congressmen were turned down, then the minority leader walked away, but it still does not have any pushback. And where does it go from here? No, you need that to have credibility. You need that. And so does it have credibility at the end, do you think? Well, if this blows up, this sensational testimony, which I don't think advanced the ball on the committee's main thesis. But this testimony which everybody was in rhapsody is over yesterday, blows up and has found to be seriously contested and in doubt, I think that will damage the credibility of the committee and his final work product, whatever that may be. Of course, always right
Video Conflicts With Cassidy Hutchinson's Story About Trump & Limo
"But I just playing this so you know it exists There you're going to hear the audio of it This is the audio of January 6th It's attached to a video She clearly can't see but the video is a president Trump getting back into what we would call the Camp David package the camps But you would call an SUV suburban right He's not even in the limo which Cassidy says she was told was the beast So the story can't possibly be true because we have the darn video Just play a few seconds This is real not a joke This is actual video but you'll hear the audio from it All right come back to me Now let's not play in YMCA so everybody does the YMCA dance That was playing there while the president pulled away in the SUVs You can watch the video on my rumble account It's a C span video No one disputes its authenticity So before Geraldo awards the Presidential Medal of Freedom to Cassidy Hutchinson he's an actual lawyer and other journalists too Claim how wonderful and persuasive she was maybe check basic facts Like hey she said she was told he got in the limo but he didn't get in the limo What you call ridiculously the beast he got into camps So how would a Secret Service agent like Tony ornato 20 years plus in the Secret Service screw that up And then call it something Nobody calls it the beast So he gets the car wrong and the name Come on man

The Left's A-Team Fact Checkers Emerge to Dissect '2000 Mules'
"Left is really getting desperate on 2000 mules. They started out by unleashing their fact checkers. And these are 20 and 30 somethings, and they thought, okay, yeah, we'll shut this down, you know, but of course these are people who know nothing about geo tracking. Geo tracking is not very reliable. And they don't know much about election law. And so they had these clumsy first salvos that were easily repelled. In fact, even people who had nothing to do with politics would say things like, wait a minute I lost my cell phone in some tall grass and I was able to pinpoint its exact location within inches. So this idea that you can't, all this technology doesn't work, it's like laughably absurd. And so suddenly the left realized, oh my gosh, you know, we've obviously deployed our B team and that's not gonna be enough. We need to unleash the a team. So the a team is now coming out. The a team is The New York Times, which is evidently trying to do some sort of a hip job. They haven't published it yet. Whoop Dee do. I mentioned The Washington Post, which I'll be discussing in depth tomorrow, a Philip bump in The Washington Post. There's an article in NPR, which I'll be dealing with. Tomorrow probably. But I want to talk about an article in the Atlanta journal constitution, which is focusing on Georgia. And I want to use it as a case study of just classic deception at all levels. Title of the article. Georgia investigation dispels allegations highlighted in 2000 mules. Let's just take in the title for a minute. You think you're going to get some kind of refutation of the allegation in 2000 meals that 242 mules. Have been identified through cell phone geo tracking, visiting ten or more drop boxes each and a bunch of these people are seen on video. Not all of them, but a bunch of them where the video is available. Now, the subtitle of the article ballots were legally delivered for family members. Okay? And then I started reading the article. The article it turns out is about one guy. And I'm going to read surveillance video showed a man pull up in a white SUV and insert 5 absentee ballots into a gwinnett county Dropbox. An investigation revealed he was delivering ballots for his family, which has allowed under Georgia
The Torture and Imprisonment (and Love) of Richard Wurmbrand
"I'm sitting here in the studio with Todd nettleton. He is with voice of the martyrs. Actually, he's the host of voice of the martyrs radio on a thousand plus stations, you were just mentioning before, I want to get to your book when faith is forbidden. But you were just mentioning that when Richard finally gets out of prison, the communists, I mean, so wicked that he had been tortured, he'd had tuberculosis. So you said when you get out of prison, they told him, you know, your body is so broken that maybe you've got a year left. Yeah. There's so many amazing things about this story. The going rate for a political prisoner at that time was $1500 to the Romanian government. The price for Richard was $10,000. So he was considered a high value target. And like you say, will the doctors examined him? He'd had TB. He'd been tortured again and again and again. They said pastor Rembrandt, you know, you probably only have a year left. God allowed him 30 more years and he traveled the entire world, telling the story of his own torture, his own persecution, but then also, hey, there are still pastors behind the iron curtain. There are still pastors in those prisons. And really, the voice of the martyrs was founded when Christians like you and I, we hear that, and we say, okay, well, how do we help them? That's really how the voice of the martyrs was founded was to be a way to help you. And so let's be clear. There are people all around this world right now, imprisoned, suffering, persecuted, tortured for their faith, killed for their faith, we need to know that. We need to stop pretending like Christianity is my pathetic little church in the suburbs. Folks, we don't deserve to live in a country where we get to drive in our SUV to our church, whatever there are people around the world suffering. That's the

"To car cast, I'm Matt the moderator, Deandre here with Bill Goldberg. How you doing? Oh, I'm just kidding, man, trying not to get blown away by these Gale force winds out here in Texas. You know, we've had a little bit of we had pretty good rain for a day and then it was super windy The Rain came in and then it just blew away and just allows we don't get that much right now here so all we do is go, all right, when it rains, go to all the warehouses and figure out where all the leaks are. So man it made it last week well last week like three days ago, it felt like California again. I was driving back from downtown and I see smoke start smelling smoke and I get flashbacks of evacuated down in San Diego wildfires out here in Texas. Yeah, well hopefully hopefully nothing bad. No, it's minuscule in comparison to being an opportunity. Yeah, to be out here, sure. Yeah, when they say a thousand acres burns out here, it's like 20,000 200,000 out in California. Yeah. So a lot of stuff happening in the car news typical in the car news world is a bunch of announcements for cars are going to come out in ten years from now. But anyway, it's exciting anyway. It's so exciting to see what's going on. That's good news. On the forefront of what's happening. On the way in though, I had a nice conversation with everybody, John uris, from helium turbo. And we've been going back and forth for a while, and he's been working on some turbo kits, the big thing is emissions legal testing. It's very expensive. You pay pass or fail, you pay. It's like $10,000 minimum. So these are these are big undertakings for a lot of small companies out there. Yeah, Goldberg's garage included, so and just going through all of the conditions of during the testing and has to be a perfect 73° and sbc level and it has all this stuff. And he's in Albuquerque, New Mexico. And so he's got weather and he's got altitude and he's like so I can do so much, but then they have to move the whole operation to California, not just for the testing, but just to finish the tuning and the kit and everything to even think you're going to pass a mission because you can't even do it now. So it's a big, it's a big task that he's taking on, but he is going to end up. He's feeling pretty good about having some twin turbo kits come out for cars and trucks that will be emissions legal and really be one of the only companies out there. There's some big supercharger manufacturers that are getting it done, but those companies are massive and they have other sources of income that are not just a small enthusiast company. So it's interesting, it's exciting. We've been doing a bit of work on the Mustang Mach one, Richard way. He's the best. He's been helping us out. So we sent the car down to Magna flow. We did the exhaust on it, but the valve needed adjustment. The open sea exhaust, they fixed that. And I said, hey, man, I got to get this car over to Anderson composites. So Richard said, fine, I'll drive it there myself. So from oceanside, back up to like the LA area that I don't know how he got a ride home and then it just so happened that the day he was driving it up there. We just had this pouring rain and he texted me and he's like, I've got to pull over this rain is crazy. And I was like, you know, I was just teasing. I was like, that's what makes it fun. Don't be a baby. He's like. He's like, I'm in your car on pilot sport cup twos with a race alignment and this car is all over the road. So you had to pull over for a minute to let The Rain die down, which happened pretty quick because it was so windy. But got the car over to Anderson, they've been sending me some photos, test spending all the carbon fiber. Luckily, everything has been fitting perfectly. So the car is going to go to the Grand Prix of Long Beach. It's coming up soon. It will debut some carbon fiber pieces there, not all of the pieces, but it's going to have some there. And then I think Magna flow is taking the car back, Richard wanted it for some event that I don't even know. And then it goes back to Anderson composites to go to fabulous forge forever, which is a great show out here, which I won't be able to make will be coming back from the trans am race Laguna Seca. And then I think pony at the bike or something like that or some other event. And then it'll all sort of come to a head at sema, right? So the car is going to go to sema. It's going to be the Anderson composites booth. We're excited about that. But we were trying to figure out all of these events that were going to, how do we just add a little bit more to the car each time. So everything comes together at sema. We've got HRE wheels coming in. We've got some of the carbon fiber pieces coming in, knock on wood, potentially in a mission's legal twin turbo kit, hopefully that could be exciting. And a couple of other pieces. So that's kind of the plan right now. There are betting board and Vegas as to which one of those will actually go on. You know, I feel good about Long Beach, right? Because the car is, the car can go to Long Beach without all of the parts on it. So that's good. So. Yes, you're right. Are we going to start pulling pulling odds, taking odds on will it go to sema? Yeah, I feel good about that. Will it go to simo with everything the way we wanted to go? Does she? I don't know on that, but we're trying to not overdo the car, right? So of course, we drop it off into Anderson composites and Dave Davis over there who's been working on it. He's like, car looks good. It's a little wet. We'll get it all cleaned up, detailed out. We're bringing to Long Beach. You know you're missing a door panel, right? I was like, oh yeah, I was working on the audio system. I took the door pedal off. So let me get the door panel back out to you guys at some point. And by the way, little things that were running into is the rear deck lid has that blacked out panel in between the taillights. And it has the Mach one logo on it. And if we just want the Mach one logo, we put it on the carbon fiber piece. Well, you can't buy just the logo from Ford. You have to get it with the deck lid panel. And it's a $1000. So I was like, all right, well, maybe we could pull the logo off the original piece or something like that. So this is where our friends at galpin auto sports help out because they've done a bunch of these. And they're saying, bring us the panel and we think we can do it. And because they have guys that have done it four or 5 times on all of the other cars, right? Maybe not the Mach one because it's so new. But the bullet and the GT and the other stuff. So they're like, yeah, it's typically this, and this is how we do it. And so that might, that might be good, but yes, to add to add to this, not a seama crunch, but we have time would be, we're gonna debut the carbon fiber hood with the hood scoop for the Mach one that's functional and has a ram air effect. In all carbon fiber, but we want it to be different at sima. So we went back to the idea of doing the Mach one is the fighter jet gray. It has like the black stripe on the hood in the middle, right? Where it's two shades of black with an orange stripe in the middle. So it's like a matte and a gloss. Part of the appearance package. It looks very cool. And I was like, oh, let's paint the hood fighter jet gray. Let's do the first black stripe in the orange, and then the big center black stripe, let's leave that carbon.

"If we do several variations of this car, we continue to build halo cars and we can make more money by having all of these options available. I mean, the Mustang lineup now forget Mach-E for a second, but having the EcoBoost and then the GT and then the Mach one and the GT 500, you have all these variations, you know, sort of a small, medium, large and XL version, right? So why not be able to continue to do that with Corvette? Which they've done, right? They've always had the Corvette and the Z06 and the ZR1, at least for some time now. Anyway, it sounds interesting. I like what they're doing. It looks like a phenomenal car at the performance numbers are just bonkers off the chart. We've got to get Alistair back in from Edmonds. He's not in now I just had another baby, so he's got a little boy at home. But they've got this, I think the series is called, I don't know, like U turn or something. And they're like, hey, let's do a performance head to head race, but we're gonna drag race, hit the brakes, make a U turn around the cones and come back. And the first episode was the C 8 Corvette versus the new Cadillac CT 5 black wing. The Cadillac has a manual transmission, the Corvette, I don't think did. The Corvette was like whatever they are four 80 horsepower for something horsepower. And naturally aspirated. And the Cadillac is like 650 horsepower. And they're like, yeah, but the Corvette, you know, it handles better and it pulls one point, I don't know, one G's and the turns, and it's lighter weight. And man, they launched those things. It looked like the Corvette was ahead. They hit that U turn almost at the same time. The Cadillac pole almost the same Jesus that Corvette, and on the way back on the first run, the Cadillac out powered the Corvette, and then on the second one, I think the Corvette one, but just kind of shows you weight, aerodynamics, gearing configuration, it's not just horsepower. We're talking, I don't know, the Cadillac came in a 150, almost 200 pounds or 250, almost 200 horsepower more in that compensated for the weight and stuff. When I was surprised, I would have thought for sure they'd say, hey, let's grab the automatic transmission Cadillac because that's going to be the faster car. But they grabbed the manual transmission, that is the coolest sedan, I have seen in a while. Freaking small. And while the CT four black wing is like a three series and the CT 5 is the larger one, but maybe with the recaro seats and everything, but I am so interested in driving these. I spoke to Cadillac. I think we're going to get on the list to drive one of these. But you know, it's kind of like what you and I were talking about the other day going. This could be the last hurrah for a couple of these vehicles, you know? Go out and maybe the TRX, you know, that you've got the Mach one that I bought, maybe the Corvette Z06, maybe this Cadillac 6 speed manual transmission and turbo engine. Adam brought up a good point. He's like, those CTS-V wagons from a few years ago with the 6 speed manual in the wagon. He's like, those things are bunk or something bring a trailer. You know, maybe the CT 5 with a manual transmission, I know guys are going to be scooping those things up, putting no miles on them in ten years. They're going to pop up on bring a trailer. And they're going to be, you know, they're going to be massive, collectible cars, massively collectible cars. Everybody's a little bigger. Just a little four inches in width and the entire, you know, I guess the question is, do they all come with the recaro seats? Is there more of a sort of a broader shoulder kind of version of the not necessarily the sea that's the frame of the vehicle itself? It's the door. Yeah. If I remember correctly, that's because when they first came out with those fell in love with it, obviously monstrous 6 over 600 horsepower manual tablet that's hearkens back to this CTS-V, the wagon. I'd love to see that again. Yeah, that'd be great if they did a wagon version. That would be kind of funny. I don't know if they'd sell any, but they'd sell. Sell one. That's all I had for the guys to listen to the shell. Basically. All right, let's go ahead and we're going to wrap things up. We're going to give the studio off to the next crew. You guys, thanks for listening. It's car cash show dot com. You can follow me at motivator on social media, social media is Goldberg.

"So the one that I drove this defender 90 had the nice audio system. It had the jump seat in the middle. It seemed fine. I think it was like 62 or 64,000. It wasn't an $85,000 version. It was 60 something thousand. Yeah. So it's an interesting option when you're cross shopping those things. I think the one ten is a little bit more, but I think the four door vehicles. I always had a used car lot looking at a car for a friend. It's a San Francisco. And, you know, they had the Jeep Gladiator, the Ford or Gladiator there, and they're like, this thing's used. It was hardly it was used. But it was like, it's $50,000 for the used price. You know, for a four door Gladiator black. Yeah, but look, you are nowadays. Yeah. Yeah, so I don't think this is outlandish pricing. This is why we're not having the same conversation with the G wagen or something, which I don't know what that starts $90,000 works its way up. And besides, I don't know that I've ever seen one of those things go off road. I think you can use the defender 90 and have a great time going off road. Or if you live in weather, Bill. It's an interesting option. That's why the neighborhood that's why the neighbors got the first one ten minutes. Yeah, see, the one ten I do like, and I'm excited about driving the V8 version. I'd like to see that thing which is sort of a badass, a big power engine in it. All right, before we wrap up, I just got this note. Again, as we're waiting for orders to open on Corvette Z06, because I'm very interested in it. I don't know if I can get one or can afford it. But it sounds like march 24th. March 24th, the order books are going to start to open. I don't know how they're rolling it out. I don't know if there's going to be deal markups. I don't know if you're on the email list if you just get the email saying you can order. But there's going to be no shortage of options for the vehicles for the 2023 Corvette C 8 and the Z06 version. Here's a couple of notes. 14 exterior color options, 11 exterior striping options. 21 interior treatment options. So you will be able to and more. The list goes on and on. There's just going to be so much you're going to be able to do. To the point where you're like, God, I hope I don't see two Z06 is exactly the same because with all these different options. I do kind of like this. This kind of goes back to cars in the 60s and going, hey, you can start to check off all these little boxes. You know, Porsche still does it now, but the thing with Porsche is you go in and you're like, oh, sticker price, you know, the base price is 78,000. And by the time you're done, you're at a $112,000. You can add $30,000 at a heartbeat and just options. But breaks in a turbo upgrade. Yeah. And look, maybe it makes sense for something like Chevrolet keeping the Corvette around using it as a halo car, knowing that the sales numbers are, you know, fairly low. Certainly not Chevy Silverado selling 800,000 trucks. 850,000 trucks, you're going to sell a few thousand Corvettes. How do you make money off the vehicle? Will you offer 97 different options on it and you charge a little bit of money for each one of those things. And then every $65,000. Yeah, every $65,000 Corvette becomes a $90,000 Corvette with profit margin. And you know what, it's something oddly okay with that because it gives us the customer choice. You know, hey, I want to get a base Corvette once been 65 grand, and I'm going to get all the performance that I want out of it. Or I really want to start to personalize it. I'm going to spend 75, 85, $95,000 for the car. So I guess that's kind of the thought process on it. You don't have to have the same one as anybody else. You could do what you want with it. But man, the more I read up on that car and the Z06, I read up on that engine, it seems like a really, really impressive car that it's not going to be able to last very long. Because doing the naturally aspirated flat plane crank, I think is going to be in the Z06 for a year, two years, three years. I don't think it's going to be able to go much longer than that. They've got to do the hybrid version. They got to do more efficient versions. Maybe a ZR1 will come out. That will be a hybrid or the hybrid will be separate in a zero one will be turbo. I don't think they're going to get supercharged versions. They probably already have all of them. Don't kid yourself. They do. So, I mean, what we hear is there's a base C 8 Corvette. There's a Z06 with the naturally aspirated flat plane crank V8. There's going to be a hybrid version of the Corvette that not necessarily meant to be more than the Z06 performance wise, but more than the base C 8. And then possibly a ZR1 version, which would be turbos instead of supercharger, but probably not the flat plane crank V8 version, because they want to make those cars different enough, right? Go, hey, if you want naturally aspirated, you get the cool naturally aspirated engine. If you want turbo, then you get maybe the base C 8 engine, but with turbos, and ultimately more horsepower. I don't know, 750 horsepower. And then I don't know where the hybrid version is going to fall in that performance wise, but I assume you're saying, hey, hybrid now brings in all wheel drive, right? Maybe we've got electric motors on the front, like the NSX. So you got to be a lot more to pull people away. Yeah. That's my fault. And also, if you think of all the different variations of like 9 11 and some of the other cars like that, well, this is Chevrolet's way of going, well, if we do several variations of this car, we continue to build halo cars and we can make more money by having all of these options available..

"Defender. The defender 90. So I drove the Land Rover defender one ten, which is the four door version. That was a little bit of a while ago. I think we got into that. I grabbed the defender 90, the two door version. The shorter wheel base, it's quite a bit shorter. It's about 17 inches. Shorter gives it more Jeep size. We're talking about the Land Rover. I'm driving the Land Rover defender 90. The two door version. They lopped 17 inches out of it and they shorten it up quite a bit. So now it's a little bit more two door Jeep sized two door Bronco size. So if you're into that type of configuration, this is interesting. It's, I believe, the three 95 horsepower V 6. Now, they are going to have a V8 version. I think the V8 version is just in the four door, the defender one ten. I'd love to drive that because I think that engine is still fantastic. A lot of fun. I just drove it in the Jaguar F type SVR as well. The 550 horsepower. I'll tell you this about the defender 90. You've got a really want the short wheel base for the angle of approach and dissent and the shorter wheelbase for off roading. It's very tall. It's very short in length. Maybe it's a less expensive competitor to the G wagen. So knowing what you're buying, if you're getting it for that particular reason and maybe it's off road capability, then I understand it. But as far as livability every day, just kind of driving it, it's a pain in the ass. You can't get into the backseat. It just turns out the utility version part of it is not that great. The four door I understand, people can go in and out of the back. There's room in it. The two door version, you pull up on this handle to flip the seat forward, but then you got to hit the little electric button and you've got to watch that thing slide and it's sitting there going, all right, keep going, keep going, keep going. Keep going. Keep going. Keep going. To get into the back, right? And you're like, well, you can't just jump in and out. You got to sit there and hold the button. It's a little bit tougher. And then when you go around in the back, you open up the back door, the storage area on the back of the SUV is pretty small. And when you fold down the seats, it definitely gives you more room, but there's a brace that goes across. It's about three or four inches tall. So if you wanted to slide something flat, that's not going to happen. It's literally like an aluminum bar on the bottom. So you've got about, I don't know, 18 inches, maybe 20 inches. When you open the door, you see the back of the rear seats, and then below it is like this aluminum bar. This aluminum brace. So if you want that space fine. But if you fold down the seats, that little aluminum bar doesn't go anywhere. So that's a little weird to not be able to fold something flat, but I guess if you're just like throwing backpacks and luggage and things like that, maybe you can use it as some sort of luggage separator. I guess the thought is, if you get the two door, if you get the defender 90 and you fold down the rear seats and you basically just use it as a two seater vehicle, but with more storage in the back. Then it makes a little bit more sense to me. But if you're using it as a four seater, it's a little odd. And then the one I drove, which isn't the fanciest version. It was the first edition, but not with all of the options. And it had this interesting jump seat in the front in the middle. So the front seats can seat three people, if you wanted. Now, I believe there's an option to just get a regular center console, a cup holder's arm rest. But the way this worked was, the middle seat, although narrow, it has a seat belt. It folds down, and then on the back of that seat, you have your arm rest and cup holders. But it sits very high, especially for a guy my size, right? Your arm is up very high, and it takes up a lot of space for a center console. What do you expect? Yeah, yeah. And then when you fold it up because it has to have a head rest on it, you know, sort of an integrated headrest, when it's down in center console mode, it's got this big kind of pad going to the front. It's a little, again, you've really got to know what you're getting this getting into with this thing. I would say. There's a lot of use for it in LA county. I know what I'm saying. For all the mall hoppers out there that are going to cruise around this thing in Beverly Hills. You got to know what you're getting when you get into the inside of this thing and you drive it and you want to use it if you're going to use the back seats or whatever. Now that being said, every time I park this thing, people went up and took pictures of it. It's a cool looking vehicle. And the two door looks badass. Look, you got the new Bronco. You got gauge the new Bronco. We saw the tudors, the two doors look badass, but the two doors less practical than the four, right? So you want to get the four door and if gage is going to go out and drive it and he's got a couple of his buddies or teammates or whatever. The four doors way more practical. Although the two door looks cool. And kind of the same idea with this thing. I like the defender. I think the defender is very cool. I think stylistically, it does a pretty good job of being modern, but also tip the hat at the old to the old defenders. I think the off road capability is pretty cool for this thing. I know a lot of, you know, higher net worth people that are going, oh, I've got a second house, so I'm going to Telluride or I'm in Jackson hole and I want a cool vehicle and a Montana, my second property, and I picked up the defender out there. It's like, yes. Listening to your assessment, I would say that defenders want to have a job replicating what they did in the past. You're right. That's exactly right. They did, yeah. I know. I'm just saying. But there's two dos to them for doing that because they didn't change the concept, you know, a 100%. They kept it as true to history as possible to satiate the people that have those vehicles. My brother is one of them. I loved his two door defender. Yeah. When I drove, and there seemed to be a decent amount of room in that in the back, but it's a specialized vehicle. It's an upscale utilitarian vehicle that's very specialized. You know, your brothers was an older truck. Right, so he's got, he's got that style. Does he have any of the new defenders? I'm not sure. He's a Land Rover guy as far as the four doors concerned, but I remember he had one of the original two doors. Yeah, so I mean, I like the new vehicle. I like the new range rovers. I like the new the new Land Rover, line rover sport. All of those I like. I just think, as I was trying to move stuff around and use the vehicle, it was just a little awkward to me and I was getting a little frustrated. I was like, I would just get the four door. So anyway, that's just kind of my thoughts. Did you drove the four door? I did. I drove the four door, and I did like a rally with it. There was like a super car rally from a bunch of friends and a dealer had, and I was just driving this, so they're like, let's cut the canyons and everybody had like Audi R 8s and stuff. And I was like, I'm gonna do it in a Land Rover. I'm just gonna do it. The defender of one ten. And I remember did you like it? I did like it. I did like it. Now, I had the one ten and I had the fancier version. So that's kind of where you're like, you know, do you get the stripped down version or do you get the fancier version? Look, in the world of Jeep and Bronco and Land Rover defender, it's nice to have those options. And I wouldn't even consider them a small medium and large. You can get a fully equipped Jeep for around 60,000 bucks. And you can get kind of a base Land Rover for 50,000 or something. So the one that I drove this defender 90 had the nice audio system. It had the jump seat.

"The old timer guys like this, but they take the modern vehicles, they tune it, whatever graphics, power the whole thing. And then they slap on a name, like copo Camaro and yenko, and in this case they did a GMC cyclone, right? They brought the cyclone back, the hot little all wheel drive truck. And then they did a modern day version. I don't know that we need to keep bringing back these nameplates and licensing nameplates and like, here's the modern day yenko and here's the, I don't know, it's like, I think we're kind of getting away from there's no lineage. There's no, there's no real tie to it. It's more of just a licensing deal. The story, I don't know, that's it. I get it, it's a money grab, in a sense, and it's like for the guys that have a yenko or a copo Camaro and they want to park the new version next to it. And there are collections. Yeah, listen, tune the car, make the car. Give it a different name and make it your own and start your own legacy. The guys VE, they did GMC cyclone reboot, right? A year ago, they did 50, they produced 50 trucks, 750 horsepower, sports suspension, lowered stance, I believe it was the 5.3 liter V8, had a big supercharger on it. I didn't love it. I didn't love it. It was all wheel drive, that part was on par. It was an extended cab, not a regular cab, which the cyclone was. So the shorter truck would have been more interesting. I don't even know if they make a shorter truck, but it would have been more interesting if they were to turn it into that. And they supercharged it, which I get it. That's the easy way to make the horsepower and there's kits out there, and they're street legal and the whole thing. But the original truck was turbo. The original truck was turbo. So if you're gonna do it and you're gonna call a cyclone, then go through the effort of developing the turbo kit and I guess work with sema or whomever. And. Get it 50 state legal. And make us a turbo all wheel drive truck if you're gonna call it, call it a cyclone. Anyway, so they've got a new truck called the extreme, I think it's extreme off road. So same kind of format, but instead of a sport truck, it's the off road version, it's got the tuned shocks, lifted suspension that are put in their own supercharger on it now. It's 750 horsepower, 600 pound feet of torque. It's a Chevy Colorado, what it's based off of, so if you want the smaller truck, but with the Dodge TRX, ram TRX horsepower and the smaller truck, you can get it from these guys. Now, to their credit, they did step up. Is they have a built engine, they have forged internal CNC ported heads on this upgraded fuel system. They needed to do a lot of work to get this thing to 750 horsepower. So my point is, well, then why didn't you do that on the cyclone? Why didn't you just develop the twin turbo kit and make them cool cyclone? I'm sure they got a lot of people going, hey man, why did you do turbo the thing? It looks like it'd be great. Here's a question. There's a question for you. If they want to bring back what the originals brought to the table. If I remember correctly, all the Yankees were forced me. Yeah, okay. That sounds right. I would be willing to bet that the ones that they replicated are not any of them four speeds. Right. It would be. Because they did their camaros and stuff and yeah, there's no way they would have gone from like a 6 speed manual to a four speed or the ten speed automatic to a four speed automatic. But let's just say manual. Let's say manual period. Yeah. Well, I mean, the manual, the Camaro did have an optional manual, so they might have been able to do the manual transmission. I'm sure they were able to, but I'm just curious to know how many of them they actually made. That is a good question. Yeah, how many got ordered with a manual? This is they want to keep it true to true to history, then there you go. All right, well, SV E, they're taking their Chevy Colorado, the extreme off road, big horsepower, big wheel and tire package, all the good bits. Here's the kicker. If you want it, it's $80,000 over the price of the Chevy Colorado. It's like yeah, it's like, how does he? At least Hennessy names his things his own stuff. So that's good. Exactly. Anyway, it looks kind of cool, but on the same notion, you could go to Lincoln filter and get the ligand filter four 50 horsepower package, which is the supercharger package for a fraction of the price. And have them install it in dino tune it and warranty it and you can do what you want on the rest of the vehicle. If you want the whole thing, turn key, maybe SV, you can pay the 80 grand over the price of the vehicle. But I guess I'm going to go get a bag real quick. It's knocking down knocking down the water, knocking down the water. Let's see, I've been driving, I've been driving the Land Rover defender. The defender 90. So I drove the Land Rover defender one ten, which is the four door version. That was a little bit of a while ago. I think we got into that. I grabbed the defender 90, the two door version. The shorter wheel base, it's quite a bit shorter. It's about 17 inches..

"Something they came back and they said, but we'll give you a credit or like a gift card to use in the aftermarket catalog for the parts of accessories, right? So, you know, it's not all equal, but they're going, hey, you know what? Here's a couple of hundred bucks to spend at the dealer while you're there. You want to outfit your vehicle with something. You're not having to come out of pocket anymore. Yeah, so it's like, you know, you got to wait a little longer. And here's some money. But really long enough. And here's something positive on top of it. That's just a completely different scenario. Well, so rivian came out and said, so Ford with the Bronco, they said, you got to wait a little longer. Here's a gift card. Here's some money. And bend over and let me kick you. Yeah, that's it. Yeah, I mean, bullshit. So first they said, you got to wait longer. And now they said, and we're going to charge you more money. So at least come out. Please come out and open your books and say, this is what it's costing us extra, right? We'll meet you halfway in the middle. We'll pay it's 20%. We'll pay 10% of it. We're asking you, you know, in good faith to me this in the murder. You know what? You are exactly right. At least the optics on that, right? The narrative would have been better. If they said, listen, all the prices for the 2024 vehicles are going to have a 20% hike. For the existing orders, we're going to have to meet you in the middle. We're going to take a little bit of a hit. We've approved this with our board. We know this is going to affect us financially, but we don't want to love your vehicle. The others will have the end. That's right. And then two years from now or whatever. Or. The accessories like gift card, that kind of thing, and if you want to outfit your rivian, I don't know if they have as many aftermarket accessories and their catalog like Ford does. But the gesture means more than anything because the parts in the parts, the aftermarket parts and the Ford steel are Ford gives you, I don't know what $250 gift card, you spend $250 of retail pricing, but they're making the parts or there's a profit margin there. So it was a nice way of them going. We're going to compensate you retail level of 250 bucks. That is real money in your pocket, but for them on the back end, the bean counters are going, okay, but it's going to cost us 30 cents. Yeah, it's going to cost a 30 cents for every dollar we're going to give out, right? So something along the lines of that. So I think rivian is, I still like the vehicle. I like what's going on there, you know, having not driven it yet. But these are some of the growing pains and it's tough when you have to put your growing pains onto the customer as well. Like we've seen this with delays with Tesla and everything else. But listen, to Elon Musk's credit, he said, congratulations rivian on your IPO and lucid and what you're doing and the big power in the range. But just keep in mind and this is not trying to him being like a wacky guy or be the dick he's often been in the past. Him going, now you have to build the cars. And believe it or not, that's the tough part there, big guy. Hey, rivian lucid, mullin, fisker. It's like, you got to have to start building the cars. And that's going to be tough. So he was right on that point. Anyway, that being said, it's not all, it's not all doom and gloom. All that's out of the way. Let's get to some of the more interesting stuff. So at the end of this month, march 29th lotus is going to unveil their first SUV. Right now they're calling the type one 32. I don't know if that's what it's really going to be called when it hits the public market. And I don't know when it's going to come out. All we know is, every time we hear the announcement of a new car, we're like, congratulations. We got a new car coming out in 2024. 2025. Don't forget about it for three years before. Yeah, right? So anyway, it seems interesting. So lotus and SUV. I think it could be important for the brand. It's going to be an EV, right? It's going to be an electric SUV. It's going to have the lotus DNA. It's going to be a sport SUV. I believe they're trying to go after Porsche Cayenne. Which may indicate sort of the size of it if they said Porsche McConnell that'd be different. I would have thought Porsche McConnell because lotus you typically think small lightweight, so kind of a sporty SUV. We'll see where it's going to go from there. The teaser stuff is kind of interesting. There was a video that they posted, but in the screenshots, it's interesting because it's an EV and it has paddles. It has like a plus and negative paddle, which there's no real gear changing in EVs. There's some technology that's being developed to for some company. So maybe it has to do with the braking, the regenerative braking, you know, like in the teslas and a lot of the EV cars you can do the one like Ford as well, the Mach-E, you can do the one pedal driving. You hit the accelerator, you get off the accelerator and start to apply the brakes. You don't need to use the brake pedal. Maybe it's some version of turning that on and off or the sensitivity of it. Things like that. So not sure how they're going to how they're going to do that. But anyway, that's the news from those guys. We've talked about these guys before, specialty vehicle engineering. It's an aftermarket tuner been around for a long time. They're making these specialty vehicles. I'm not sure if I'm a big fan of this thing that they've been doing. A lot of the old timer guys like this, but they take the modern vehicles, they tune it, whatever graphics, power the whole thing. And.

"Put it in the figures like that. Puts reality. It takes the giggle out of it. I mean, it's a horrible thing. It does. Now, from the owner's point of view or the order holders, they didn't take delivery of the car. So this isn't going to be on them. They don't have to call their insurance company. They can decide, do we order a new car? Do we cancel the order, whatever. I'm sure they're going to have to work that out with the car companies, the particular brands, maybe Porsche does something different than VW, maybe VW does something different than Audi, Lamborghini, and so on and so forth. How'd you like to be the concierge taking those codes? Yeah, and listen, and all these dealers that don't have a lot of information. They're getting phone calls and all kinds of information from their customers going, what are we doing? What's going on? And these are expensive cars, so it's a little bit different type of buyer and it's sort of a little bit more of a hand holding process when you're constant ordering a car and you're building it to order and if you do paint to match and all kinds of stuff. So yeah, it sounds like a whole terrible situation. Good that nobody's hurt, but now this is an impact on the environment out there and impact financially. There's a lot of things going on. But anyway, that's the news there. And in other reservation holder news, rivian just announced, I believe, today, or yesterday, rivian said, hey, we can't, when we announced the pricing of our vehicles, we announced the pricing of our vehicles back in 2018. Pretty pandemic pre chip shortage pre, everything. So now they had a note out to all of their reservation holders and said, we can't give you the vehicle for that price. So you can either pay more for the vehicle that you ordered or we can downgrade you to a lesser vehicle, meaning two motors instead of four or smaller battery, for roughly the same price. What's the difference? Well, if you ordered the long run, the price difference, yeah. It's not insignificant. So if you ordered the base price vehicle, the R one T, which was, that's up 17% to 78,975. And if you ordered the quad motor configuration of the RS one, that's up 20%. 20%. So the forums, this has only been out there for like a day, and there was like 40 pages of comments on the forums in the first day of people saying this is pricing me out of the vehicle. I can no longer afford the vehicle. I have to cancel orders and some are saying, I got to get the lesser version and obviously, listen, there's not a single person that's on the list that's going, yeah, all right, it's fine. I mean, some people will deal with it because they can afford it. But nobody got this email and was like, eh, I expected this. This is the tough one to swallow. Now this is, this is a tough thing to do. Because no matter how much money or how little money you have, this hurts, right? This hearts to get this sort of news and going, hey, congratulations. You're going to be one of the first people to get this cool new electric truck that we've been talking about. But you're going to have to pay us a lot more money for it. And this is a little different than the dealer going to them and going, hey, you with the new lightning on the new Z06 Corvette. I know you gave $500 deposit to get to get that vehicle. But there's a $10,000 dealer markup, right? So this isn't Ford and GM going, hey dealers, you need to stop doing that. You can't just charge whatever, you know, people are waiting for the car. There's reservations for the car. Do the right thing and just charge sticker. This is the factory going. We got to make more money on these cars. For whatever financial reason, stock price reasons, whatever the pressure is coming from. So that's a tough gig. Listen, here's my prediction. That's either going to be one bad ass truck or that they just dealt ourselves their death blow. Because if it's an established manufacturer, you're going to obviously have some trust in now you have to have that much more trust in their ability to provide this technology at the top level to constitute a 25 or 20% upgrade before you have even driven. Because they're brand new, right? They're brand new. All of these order holders have never horrible move. Yeah, it's a tough move. I'm a little surprised that there wasn't. Some sort of compensation. Like, where's the goodwill? You know what I'm saying? Yeah. You know, like, you know how like even Ford was like, oh, you know, we know we have chip shortages at a couple of other things that are affecting the new vehicles, but we told you guys you were going to get a Bronco, but now we found out the hard tops were leaking water. So there's going to be a delay in the hardtops. But then at least four did something they came back and they said, but we'll give you a credit or like a gift card to use in the aftermarket catalog for the parts of accessories, right?.

"Everything costs time and money. Sorry. Sorry. It's all good. Speaking of reality, here's the update on the felicity ace. This is the big ship that's been burning. In the middle of the ocean with about 4000 cars on it, I'm sure you guys have seen it in the news, certainly in the automotive news and every other podcast. Everybody's covering it. It's tragic. I don't know. The whole thing is just wacky. The crew on the ship, by the way, let's just lead with this. The crew on the ship has been evacuated 22 members that happened a while ago. Everything's fine. But of the 4000 cars from the VW group, there's VWs, there's Porsche, Audi's, Bentley's Lamborghinis. They didn't really give any information as to how many of each of those cars I think Matt farron smoking tire has been very vocal about it. I think he ordered a car a specialty Porsche that is on there super sucks. I'm just so. Very, very sad to hear that. I mean, obviously 4000 cars. It's terrible situation, right? Obviously he's going to get his car replaced and he's going to have to wait a little bit longer and whatever. So it'll get worked out. But yeah, you know, you're waiting a long time and then you get a phone call or an email or something going, yeah, sorry, you're one off special car that you custom ordered is parting in the middle of the ocean. We're pretty sure. I like Matt. And so my laughing is not as nothing to do with him. It's just, it's a giddy kind of a helpless laugh because I can unmistakably empathize with him. There's nothing he could do. There's nothing anybody with the order of these cars, like you're just sitting there going, oh great, well, I'm screwed. But also it's like, it's a car. I don't know. The whole thing's kind of weird, and I do like that. I do feel bad. Are there any numbers on the electric vehicles versus the others? I don't know that. So that's part of the issue is when this thing started to catch fire, it worked its way to some of the electric cars and the batteries. And those were on fire and how do you put them out and the chemicals? But the bad news is so they were towing it in. First they couldn't do anything for like a week. It needed to kind of burn for a bit. And then there were towering it towing it in. And it's still out there. I don't know, it's like 202 150 nautical miles out there. And it just got its ass kicked with huge waves and big weather out there. And then it banked over about 45° and caught some water and that was it. So now it's sank. So now this damn thing is at the bottom of the ocean. So there's not even, well, now there's a whole bunch of problems. One, who knows what's in the bottom of the ocean now, right? Chemicals and oil and diesel fuel from the ship and there's a whole freaking mess out there that is terrible. But then yes, not being able to bring it in. There's not even a crew that can get on board and kind of walk around and be like, did anything get salvaged and can we take inventory over the cars and obviously there's paperwork of saying what's on the thing, but now you have to, I don't know what you can do. I guess I don't know. First of all, there's got to be a clean up crew in the ocean, trying to. Oil spells we've seen before and we've got some methods of cleaning that up and diesel fuel and stuff. But I don't know what's going on with lithium ion batteries and all kinds of other stuff. That make up those batteries. So it sounds like it's a shit show at the bottom of the ocean, which that's the part where we're like, oh, it's sank, we lost all our cars. Yeah, but also, didn't we just screw up? The ocean in that area. So I don't know, it sounds like, sounds like a big hassle. I think the Portuguese navy says, because it was so far out about 10,000 feet deep. It was carrying 2200 tons of fuel and 2200 tons of oil. Not gallons. And yeah, financially, this is a shitshow. It's $438 million worth of goods were on the ship. 401 million of it was cars. Look, to the owners of the cars, people that ordered them specifically, guys like Matt Farah. I don't know all the specifics of the damage that this accident is coming. Well, one you.

"That's cheap. For the FF. How about they lusso, the GT four lusso. I'm just curious to see if that was a much better car or slightly better car. The car that's popping, which I've always was always kind of confused by in the Ferrari department, but there's a couple coming up at auction with some pretty high. Estimates, car IU stone, which is 360 three dollars. I'm always like, that's a ton of car. And they were just 90 to one ten all day long for the longest period of time. And I'm like, it's a real, I mean, it is a street legal race car and it is a cool piece. And it looks good and it just it's perfect. And I'm like, why is that a hundred grand? Yeah. They're two 52. They went quickly. They went quickly. Speaking of that, we were kind of speculating. I think it was the last episode where you're telling me about the first Japanese car to the one 75 to two, which is still quite a bit under sticker, yeah, I kind of feel like if you're within 30 to $50,000 between the FF and the luso, you might want to lean toward the loose cell. Although I mean, obviously it's still $50,000. But yeah, kind of interesting. I haven't done enough research on to figure out what the quarks were with the bugs were like every car would have. So I cost of ownership I'd be curious. I don't know that car is 2014 or something now or whatever it's been a little bit. It's been a little bit. I would say that the way the more modern car market supercar exotic car market is going, I think those cars are still a little undervalued. I think that would be a good purchase. I think you do okay. And that's a big statement because everything is overvalued right now. Everything seems to be really high. So if you're looking for something that might be interesting at a good price, I agree on those cars. Well, speaking of overvalued. So we're talking about previous show we're talking about first Japanese car to get over 2 million bucks. And lo and behold, a Toyota 67 Toyota 2000 GT, the Shelby production race car is coming up for auction at Amelia island with two 7 5 to three 5. I think it is. Sounds very ambitious to me. Very ambitious. Now maybe it's just all things Shelby. Maybe it's that the 2000s are knocking on the door of a million bucks again. And it's really it looks great in that race train with those Shelby American colors on it. And I don't know if people know that story. But and I'll screw it up a little bit. So you fill in the blanks. Okay. If I screw this up. But the story you go, Shelby, Toyota. What's up? Yeah. The answer to the story is by the mid later by 66. Maybe 67 Shelby was kind of done with the GT 40 and done with the Daytona and done with Pete Brock and that was that. You know, Pete Brock, like I said after they got done winning the manufacturer's championship with the Daytona just sort of came back to Shelby and someone else was in his office basically how he described it. He got his walking papers. And then he went and took the heno. The hino sports car. He know was doing some sort of Japanese sports car. He know that truck manufacture. Yeah. He's doing a car. I'll screw it up a little, but I'm basing on what Brock told me or us. He took the heno Brock did his magic on the hino sedan sports car, you know, took it to riverside and won the class. And that people became very impressed on what Pete Brock could do with the Japanese car. And so then a lot of the other Japanese car, I guess manufacturers wanted to know who this guy was and what they could do for us. And then he know in dots and had some sort of relationship or somebody that he know or whatever and long story or Toyota, maybe he known Toyota. I think Toyota bought he know or some version of that later. Yeah, Toyota, I think still owns it. There was some relationship there. And so they said, hey, we're going to do this Toyota 2000 sports car and why not give it to Brock and let him breathe on it. And let's go racing and then Brock said good. And we'll do a dealership and blah blah blah and then Shelby said, what's that? You're going to do a dealership with Toyota? Yeah. I could use a dealership with Toyota. And then he just sort of walked in and said, wouldn't you guys rather have a Shelby Toyota dealership on the heels of all the winning shall we just got doing at Le Mans and beyond versus Brock Toyota dealership? And they're like, yeah, we'll take Shelby. He took over the whole thing. And then Brock was shit out of luck. And then somebody maybe had he know or maybe wherever got him hooked up with dotson. And then he said, all right, now we're gonna build datsun race cars and we're gonna follow Shelby around wherever they go to race. We're gonna go to race and we're gonna beat them. And get all the points. And it's payback time for Shelby. And according to Brock or anyone else and even according to the description and the auction site, that car won out had some limited very limited success. Never really, it never really performed how they wanted it to perform, I think. And I don't know. It wasn't like a big podium car or winning car. It was a top ten car. I don't think there are any of those 2000s. I think Shelby, I don't know, Chris, if you can see who would those Shelby's have raced against like John Morton and his two 40 Z well, it was a C production. Right. So in 68, it ran the C production class for imports, while there was no Z in south Mayo datsun lotus Nissan Porsche triumph would have maybe been in those? Yeah, C production,.

"Or the Ford mustang mach or even the chevrolet bolt for that matter Because it won't bring the vehicle to a complete stop but it'll bring it down to about five miles an hour so and then you have to get on the break and the region breaking even in in the b mode is a. It's not quite as aggressive as what you'll find in some of those other vehicles so if you really like strong region and i do you know you're not gonna get going to get quite as much in the eighty four as you would in some other vehicles but overall it's it's pretty good and and you can do most of your driving without having to touch the break at any time. In fact the pedal kind of interesting done fun. Little detail on these vehicles Obviously to pedals no manual transmission. So there's no clutch but on the pedal there's a little arrow Looks like a play button on a on a music player and then on the brake pedal. There's a couple of vertical bars That look like a pause button off music player so play pause as kind of just a fun. Little detail overall vehicle is surprisingly roomy. It's on the outside. It's similar in size overall to most Compact crossovers in the which are and. That's right now aside from full-size. pickup trucks. Is pretty far away. The most popular segment in the us market. It has really overtaken midsize sedans which used to be the most popular So vehicles like the toyota. Rav four on the vive. Ford escape chevy equinox. It's in that same size classes those vehicles but because of the fact that it's electric Doesn't have any drive drive train underneath you. Just have the battery pack under the floor between the the front rear motors. It and and because you don't have an engine up front. It allowed volkswagen designers to move the dashboard up. In a way makes the vehicle feel really roomy inside and it is quite roomy incited. It's very roomy car you'll have no problem at all five adults in this car For you know for any normal driving road trip You know three kids in the back. Probably be a little more comfortable than than three adults but still it feels very spacious. There's lots of hip and shoulder room. Lots of height this model. This is the first edition model at least has the full glass panoramic route. Like what you'll find in. Most tesla's the maki's got one of those. I think there will be some less expensive models later on that have steele roof and right now the the four in the first edition which is what they said. This is the trend that most automakers are doing. These days is offering limited first edition models. You know kind of following again in the pattern of tesla when they when they originally launched the roadster back in two thousand seven. Two thousand eight They sold the first batch. The first hundred or so of those were founders edition models and they've done limited first edition runs for each of their subsequent vehicles now. Most manufacturers are doing that for did a launch edition of the machi. Vw's falling their first edition of the Four they did a first edition. Id three in europe as well. So this one went for forty four thousand dollars sticker price before the tax incentives. The first editions are all sold out. Now he can't get them anymore but what you can order. Now is the eighty four pro. Which again is a single motor rear wheel drive version than starts at forty thousand dollars before incentives and then you still have full eligibility for most wagon through volkswagen for the seventy five dollar federal tax credit plus whatever state and local. Incentives may be where you happen to live. the Later on probably late this year. Or maybe the early part two thousand twenty two the will also be a less expensive Single motor version and one of the interesting things. That volkswagen is doing with the platform. Volkswagen one of the first manufacturers high volume mainstream manufacturers to go to front wheel drive on their smaller vehicles because with a gas engine front wheel drive. turn the engine sideways. You can concentrate all the powertrain components in the front makes for room ears better packaging and better traction Because you've got the weight over the drive. Wheels generally don't front wheel drive. Vehicles often. don't handle as well as all wheel drive vehicles or rear wheel drive vehicles Because the front wheels have to do both the steering and the the tractive effort to get the car moving so generally rear wheel drive vehicles and have the best driving dynamics so what volkswagen's done with the family with the platform is the default is a single rear wheel drive So you You can split the workload between the front and rear tyres. The franz do the steering arrears do the propulsion makes the car handle low better and this this car This is not as i said. This is a single motor rear wheel drive so it does. It does handle really well. And that's that's a trait. That volkswagen is volkswagen vehicles. Had for a long time there tend to be very fun to drive. they're nimble they even the front wheel. Drive models are have really good driving dynamics. The same is true for the four and we haven't driven a rear wheel drive one yet but certainly with the all wheel drive it. It is quite enjoyable to drive. The only downside really to the driving dynamics of this car is surprisingly the steering feel. There's not a whole lot of feedback through the steering wheel when you're cornering and what that means is in a car like say for example my my oh mazda miata.

"Gm which is producing the electric hamas gmc brand said the suv going to production early. Twenty twenty Is it just me. Say yes before. You've heard i'm going to say is it just me or is it getting a little bit tiresome. Hearing about some caused coming out in two thousand hundred twenty three when there are so many great ebays either on the market now very same i know they want to create hype around the electric hummer. But really. thanks for telling about that. We can all the now and white two years four or there are less pricey versions coming even later a grind version and a low end eighty grand version because i've always thought icy grind was the low end of the market version will have two hundred and fifty miles of range and it comes in the spring of twenty twenty four so maybe hibernate for the next three years if you on that one well previously. The company said their electric pickup truck. We'll be assembled hopefully by the end of this year starting with the most expensive trim level but if that slipped into twenty two wouldn't be surprised the fully enclosed hungary so i don't the truck but the suv version is actually a short shorter twenty inches shorter than the pickup truck. Despite this it can still comfortably sit five adults. You can fold down the receipts to open up. Eighty two cubic feet of combat cargo space in the back. More storage under the floor says the rub report dot com website. The massive cargo space accessible via power swing out tailgates. They full size or amount. It's better tire. The cabin also features the trucks sese to remove infinity. Reef this guy panels the infancy rafe. You can still them in the front of the car. The front will the fruits and if you want to convert it into a kind of four by four. Suv convertible thing. You can take off the roof and stick him in the front news. The hummer suv is less powerful than the pickup. Could be disappointing to some people. There is a trade off because the shorter wheelbase There is less room for batteries. The thing that's not like a a module two of the batteries but the new model has a shorter turning radius. So there you go silver lining. Gmc unveiled the suv and a commercial. Yes that i during the nc double a. men's final full basketball tournament. The ad was right to bombay style. Lebron james and highlighting the signature hama features like extract mode where it lifts up or crab walk says automotive news. Gmc's not confirming the volume targets. Or even where. The suv version will be made but sources say gm ability suv Factories zero in detroit's alongside the pickup truck. Well they want to build twenty three thousand suv versions of the per year. Once they finished up production edition one model Starts one hundred and five but then seven grand less than the pickup truck for the first edition but you add some fees on top of that as an authorized package which will take the price over one hundred and ten well. Gm has yet to detail the precise batch respects for the suv The little store its power in. But we think it'll be a double stacked by tree. Eight hundred volts jogging on three hundred kilowatts charge speeds and offering over three hundred miles equipped with optional power station function. It'll do vehicle to load or whatever you wanna call that you can plug stuff into the car. This is a pretty powerful verte. It's a six kilowatt power supplies so that really is plenty of power tools. You out camping and having a heater on maybe cooking as well. Six kilowatts is plenty of appliances Gm says the maximum output off. The suv is a bit down on the truck. It's going to be a one hundred and sixty seven horsepower. Less i- hundred nineteen brake horsepower of the suv which is still plenty nor to sixty in three point. Five seconds they keep giving this talk figure out which is the talk of the wheels of eleven and a half thousand pound feet of talk which is a stupid figure so To give out the real life figure could be a thousand pound feet of torque which is impressive. That's an impressive number but give this crazy. Inflated talk figure seen explained their best last year. Let me tell you how seeing the explained. Gmc keep giving this crazy. Massive number for talk to car and up corresponds to wheel talk which is traditional most to talk multiplied through a mission drive ratio. Well jason penske from engineering explained has a video that spells out the difference and he a piece that he published following tesla's claim of the roads to having seven thousand pound feet of torque. Well if you take a dodge challenger s altea demon. Which is what he did. As the example it produces nine hundred and seventy two newton meets of engine talk and multiplied through the gear ratios. You can actually get fourteen thousand talking. I but most have a final drive reduction of about eight to one. So maybe that will be just around a thousand In normal car language pound feet of torque which like i say if only they would do every other manufacturer does it would still sound very very impressive. Advice the hummer suv. What you think of it. Would you get the truck the suv. Or neither. I haven't gone particularly one hundred grand bowling abutting holding pocket so i'll be getting neither however These are great because that selling out. I mean i did say at the start of the podcast. They won't tell us how many sold so well as selling out really. I suppose unless we know the data behind it nice headline is supposed to say we sold out but the great great vehicles that get people talking. Do i really want to drive a hummer and in the wrong country for style. I rode the small and it wouldn't in my driveway in the world. When i buy one absolutely no other like how it looks on the outside all the inside. Actually it's very utilitarian isn't it. It's kind of as a working vic. Allowed understand it.

Epa range for the bmw. I x next nissan arias Getting some last minute. Winter testing development of the car is wrapping up nissan subjecting subjecting the final cold weather testing in japan's northernmost main island. While the winter weather is still heavy. Aria is production. Ready right now. So nissan isn't really changing anything substantial just final tweaks goes up against the full model. Y kia launches. Later this year round some says auto weeks dot com. The aria goes on sale. Only the second half of this year to battery sizes are the sixty three or eighty seven kilowatt hours pricing starting around forty thousand dollars prior to incentives. The larger battery will give range of over three hundred miles. And there's a few videos floating around online at the first impressions. The nissan lesson Some journalists and car review is film are really liked the look of the our big compact family car by the way low tech like the inside. The inside reminds me very much of the outing. Five in the the center console moves forwards and backwards. It moves out of the way. If you want your shuffle leah bam across from passing drive. I don't know why you'd want to do that every day. But it's gonna be useful. Gets the center console back the white if you've got nobody in the receipt so just kind of two people in the back as well and you know it using that central rear seat also. The tech looks pretty good. The driver systems stuff. Looks really good on. The aria starting looks pretty good because they dumping chatham oh everywhere from japan so come to sit on the rights. What the leaf is the question. I sometimes a post. I didn't think it leaves the leaf up the creek without a paddle. I think they'll continue to make a direct replacement but of course is a proper. Ev from this end with battery management's proper active thermal management to keep it in good shape. Next we'll go to sweden an efforts to reduce battery whites by building batteries. The pulse of the actual cost structure or promising concepts now team swedish. Researchers has made a big advance in the area developing a structural battery system using carbon fiber. Ano- says panic. We'll tesla has been developing structural battery packs as well. We'll see on the model y coming out of berlin on the road and perhaps even in the semi truck as well but the system that tests were going for is individual cylindrical battery cells held in place by matrix. The provides structural support as part of the car's frame nonetheless policy serviceable and they essentially pass of the car. Tesla's method embedding cylindrical. cells into housing. That just happened to be part of the car's frame. That's what vehicle. Structural good approach but the swedish team have gone even further now from chalmers university of technology. The concept makes every component of the battery of structural materials is a proper structural battery pretty much. Every part of the battery supports structural. Loads not have free loadings electrical cells in some big matrix. I still up nick. Describe it which tesla's white it contains carbon fibre the serves simultaneously as electrode a conductor and load bearing materials. The latest research breakthrough paves the way for massless storage. In vehicles and other technology says sitek dot com. It's tempt massless storage. Because in essence the batteries white actually vanishes when it becomes policy that load bearing structure calculation. Show that this type of multifunctional battery could greatly reduce the weights of an ev. At the moment. I gather it's still in the lab. At of course tesla launching cows with their version of structural batteries. This summer so still work today but all sounds really promising. Okay that's the news. Hey it's time for you. A question of the week i'll answers i was talking about. Incentives moisture favor incentive and is really interesting. The says we got in this week now. Rajiv kicks off raj. Narayan says i agree with you. A subsidy off the price of av may not be the best incentive off. The manufacturer increases the price to take off some of the incentive. My chevy bolt is now suddenly much. Cheaper now is no longer eligible for a tax credit. Purchase post purchase incentives. Maybe better perhaps they set amount of free charging free access to infrastructure or even discounted or even know registration fees. He says yeah. That's what we have here. we think would vehicle excise. Gt otherwise known as the road tax attacks but people call it but his vehicle excise duty and he's based on co two and it was just when i drove a fossil car. It was one of those things that you just accepted his pov ownership with insurance and putting petrol in the car but the biggest engine the engine the more tax you pay tax however with an event they wave so zero now. I'm bitterly for so long now. Now totally used to getting the letter. You still have to register it so i still get sent to bill and it says please pay us zero pounds and you still have to go through the procedure of going online putting in your reference number and saying hey we got government. I'm giving zero pounds and they go confirmed if given us zero pounds a next year. It's a bit odd. You kind of okay through the rigamarole of it. It's about five minutes not really a hardship. But it's a good incentive. I like kinda forget about it because you know you think about what you think about. So i guess it's true. Actually if i still owned the piston kyle be very expensive to run next. James redmond says. I think people need some persuasion to try and even so i would incentivize free. Evey for twenty four seventy two hours. You've covered the insurance and let people try any evey for free says james. that's a really good incentive. I've never really heard of that on a national scale or anything like that. I've heard of small individual projects around the world that do that. But that's a really cool incentive. That wouldn't normally be thought of as an incentive but certainly sample size of one but my wife was unsold idea even though i made navy Podcast and an unranked about she did not want to drive one herself. She's like i'm fine with our. And then when i finally said look just we'll get you zoe. We'll we'll you can take it out and just have a play and kind of came back from that. And she was like well of course. Why wouldn't you why. Why would you drive anything else it was. I was smooth and quiet. And she's like we can. We can so she just needed to drive. One next marina. In new york says company vehicles cover far more miles than personal vehicles so i think fleets and working vans should get more incentives. It might not be popular with private buys but would get more miles driven electrically than any other incentive interesting tony and his bolt. Ev says it's not so much. An incentive for vs but more countries should do like norway atta surcharge or taxes to the cost of petrol and diesel cars to make them more expensive. This doesn't stop anyone buying a petro. If they want to go ahead it doesn't mean people will probably choose an though because we will want to save money. Sylvia email sylvia hudson says the best kind of incentive is one which constantly reminds you of the benefits rather than a single incentive the point of purchase so ongoing things like tax breaks or low fuel costs lower rates have company contacts. Good reminders about the choice that you have made which is to drive. Ev veronica in london. She said why don't more countries lift value added tax the at on tv. We've seen this in the following. Covid the government have given the hospitality sector a temporary vat rate reduction hospitality. And he has to charge five percent vat than the normal twenty percent their customers and that is in order to lower prices if you know to to the public and to stimulate the sector after all vat she says is an optional tax applied to most things or services that we have to buy a vat is the third biggest revenue generator in the uk for the government after the tax that we get our wages and the national insurance that we pay on our wages interesting actually. Vat is entirely discretionary and the government could say hi to pay on abc's for this year. Which would immediately take twenty percent off the price that we pay as buyers wouldn't affect the comic because tool and there'd be some lost revenue for the For the government so There's the downside death.

Immigrants are that come to america and they come from a different country. It's not that. I think joe biden. He doesn't like you know love illegal immigration or something like that but Donald trump was was very against the immigrants. Having to america. The truce yes yes. Yes and so joe biden you know he.

It's from the bronze age both claim they sounded one thousand nine hundred nine by the way in germany. Oh off doing their heads all strange. I'm thinking about new perot sung and all. That's right the sunday but for ari right. Yes they have a new. Suv is gonna come out next year. That sounds really interesting. Yes so You know some people. They get kind of mad at ferrari because ferraris. It's like the more money you know. Normally you buy a car in the second you buy it. It's it's worth like half the price or something. the ferrari. It's not like yes in what's annoying here for the other car companies. I think is. They're getting to the suv business as usual. The as what needs. Yes you do brand like the trucks lashkar that people have if you have kids or not a truck but guards it's like let's be cool. Suv yes Okay so the this is what they're bringing into the market do jewish so this is a little heart warming story. You know you would really like to play a game high lie. Oh yes hi live. that's right you know. My dad and i were in florida recently. Well we'll tell you at the end but a highlight for some reason he. Yes so i've got this.

"Energy research. I do know that eighteen months ago. Two years many elon. Musk stood on stage and said cell level. Pack level so level We're one hundred dollars now now. And i've seen some recent reports as well about the p. Cells the lithium iron phosphate. Ones being you know well under one hundred dollars so this report seems to me in accurate based on simply the information. That's out there now. Maybe they've got a lot of advises on this. The far more intelligent than i am but based on publicly said things by publicly traded companies so they tend not to lie These focusing why why like at least fifty dollars i reckon side. What do i next be. P pulse is investing in the legacy charge point. So yeah if you don't know the history. Bp bought a big network over here charge mazda and polar renamed it bp pulse and they are improving the reliability of that older units by working with local authorities to upgrade the old charges electricity. The bp subsiduary has already agreed to invest half a million pounds in infrastructure of these fifty old charge points mostly owned by local authorities originally installed over a decade ago by government grant. Funding cold plugged in places in case. You're interested well beyond the upgrading of these fifty points. Discussions are underway to make another three quarters of a million pounds available for these legacy chargepoint owners to help upgrade. Yeah that's the situation where i am. I'm in town pool. In the south of england and a bone within pool have a ton of a ton fifteen thirteen fifteen dc fast chargers around the town that are ancient many of them. Don't work on my rent. Is zoe just has a complete earth faults and will not work some of them do and you can use them with my. I'm a member of the pulse network. So the thing so called the card But most of them don't work with zoe. they're really old. That battered one of them. In boomers had screen smashed in by vandals. But i gather bp. Just go in and fix them because their own or at least operating in some way by the local council the local authority. And if that's the case where i live in many places than that could be. Why seventy charges around the local council the names come and go and there's local elections and local politicians and and really you know i don. I pay attention to my local politics but really do they ever talk about electric vehicle charging that never. Let's talk about riviera next. The ceo rj rj. Scarring has been tweeting. A video of himself. Getting inside the allan s. That's the suv. Not the truck. And so he folded down the second and third row seats and climbed in the back. And he's a big guy and there was a ton of rain for him. Great video and you know what he walking around the ravine factory. Look the suv's the ss the more. See them the more they look really really nice from every angle. I'd have over a truck everyday of the week. But i'm truck country here so he says ready for camping and yet he lies down on the back of it and there's just it's it looks huge with a tailgate down the seats a flat from the second row backwards out of the vs rare. So that's a ton of staff. Suv looks really good. Finally hyundai announcing the new kona electric prices over here the refreshed kona star thirty thousand pounds. After you take off. The three thousand pound government grown. It had a visual refresh with more technology. Added says car while if you go to the top spec. That's forty thousand. It's ten point two five inch drivers display at a big infotainment display as well parking sensors and cameras heated seats and steering wheel and lots of good as as well adaptive cruise key entry. Sixty four kilowatt hour battery pack with a three hundred miles of range and about forty five minutes to go to eighty percent in those but seventy odd kilowatts. They charge out.

"My name is martin lee and through every story. So you haven't got a kick off with that. Big story about the kea. Unveiling the ev six. Its first dedicated. Ev has revealed the first official images of the av six. It's a dedicated. Av on the new platform from the parent company. Hyundai group is the global modular platform. Gnp the league in the six is what is going to be cold. it's the first of next gen battery. Electric vehicles developed under a new delight. Designed philosophy that embodies. What they say is their shift to a navy. Company says next green car care has not yet provided any technical data on the eve. Six baht we can join up the dots. So the ionic five hyundai big brother come the the company or the announced that on surprisingly that the first and then key is coming second. But that'll provide some clues as to where we are now. Batteries on the ionic five. Fifty eight or seventy three kilowatt hours powertrains hundred and twenty five and two hundred and twenty five kilowatts That will maybe be reflected. Mirrored somewhere on key is very similar version of the i five. The ev six. They've gone for numbers letters and numbers the ev. One will be interesting won't it. What if they're allowed to use that name. I highly doubt it anyway. Moving the six. We'll have the fast charging capacity because it's not to do with humvees the platform so we know the on five charges mega quick. So will this and so that is going to be for so many people that happened to be passing one hundred and fifty or three hundred and fifty kilowatt fast charger a rapid high powered charge. That can really make the most use a nice low state of charge. They're going to be charging for fifteen twenty minutes. And then you're on the road next gen stuff. This is the future. I'm so excited about it. Can you tell again like scientist at times next to carve. I'm excited about. But i can't buy hit the duchy a spring dutch. I was gonna say the cheap bit of reynaud and realized that might be a little more insulting. That i intended it. But it's kinda true. The cheap bit of reynaud dacha is unveiling the spring pricing now available to order from twelve. Just over twelve thousand euros opening a new chapter in the history with the spring all electric car hundred percent ebay and knowledge of the renault group of being passed down to this starting at just over twelve thousand euros off the government incentives in france supply. The spring is the most affordable av in europe they say making mobility accessible for twelve thousand euros now beneath its. Suv look like city hall with four seats and simple engine. Two hundred and thirty kilometers wwl's ep range and forty four horsepower motor or thirty three kilowatts all electric power. Like i say battery size okay. Twenty seven point four kilowatt hours. That's respectable. I'll take that twenty seven point four bigger than my first ev. The reynoso zoe. The first one i had and so have a look at the pictures if you can with avocados around it when you see because it's of like crossover style to it looks toll and it looks fled and it looks like oh. How big's up. There's some pictures floating around ready or Twitter somebody folded onto me. And i'll give you name check on the podcast soon It was it james. J j james foley and to zoe's flanking a spring as the spring is between them. It's a spring sandwich and the zoe looks enormous. And that's and there's always a very small car so yet it's weird the pictures on its own the spring look big but look at it against because it really is a roller skate. I mean i think this picture was legit. It's tiny Okay we'll we'll wait to see them only only cheap reviews and stuff and maybe get drive of one next. We'll talk tesla asking regulators to allow full. Self-driving beta to be available. Any europe says smith them us after the ceo announced the wide. Release a full self-driving beta a few days ago. The topic is attracted more attention. Flosi wannabe part of the testing program. So in the us the Drivers can now button and request. The beta version. Europeans have been expressing strong desire to try out over here and so of course using twitter. He wrote the test will ask regulators to allow it says in response to a request from a tesla over here in europe Elon musk replied. The company would ask regional regulators to authorize the use of beata full. Self-driving beater over here if approval granted. It'll become an additional stage in the development of a very impressive system fact days roads over here versus road in the us. Very different now The cities particularly compact hundreds of years old narrow streets and pedestrians in some cities. Now i'm looking at you italy in paris franz You know there are calls but the pedestrians just walk so yet. The other drivers yeah. It's gonna be interesting When that is unveiled over. Here if is i mean. I don is i think about it all the time but there is like there's a semi serious side of that is not self driving. It's really impressive. Doing tesla But it's not self driving and it won't be for a really long time. Not level five not even not level for not take out the steering wheel and when it's raining and snowy it'll get you to where you wanna go knocking do that in a million in a million cases so It's it's hard to have a balanced argument with uber fans about this book as kind of. Yeah it's where we are so there is a serious side to that and there's a safety issue as well. We've seen those issues before With tesla's autonomy suites. You've got to pay attention. You gotta have your hands on the wheel and fate by the pedal so when you go into an underpass and it slams on the brakes and fence and breaking you are ready to accelerate away from the comments about to plow into the back of. Yeah right let's move on a tesla's cost per kilowatt hour from cells. Suppliers has been well. This says reveals. But tesla haven't revealed it Tesla sources many of its batteries from third party suppliers. These days panasonic long term partner. Panasonic those have gone hand in glove for years However the likes of lg kevin cat common names associated with us when we talk about tesla these days as well and that paying significantly less per kilowatt hour compared to their competitors according to a report done by can energy research advisers says teslarati according to cancer research tesla pays one hundred and forty two dollars per kilowatt hour for cells purchased from the three supplies. I mentioned meanwhile. Gm is paying a hundred sixty nine. The industry average is one eight six according to this report. Furthermore tesla's packs the actual cells made into practical the material around them in the and controls one hundred and eighty seven dollars per kilowatt hour with gm to i seven and the industry being two four six. I don't know anything about this company.

"You, , see them everywhere nearly fifty percent of all vehicles sold in the US, , our sport utility vehicles the International Energy Agency reports SUV's are second only to electric power for the increase in greenhouse gas emissions in the last decade. . But there are a new wave of all electric SUV's and trucks is coming and these new vehicles may be more powerful and boasted longer driving range than many of today's gas-powered SUV's trucks. . So, , how quickly will high tech these take hold in the next decade Chelsea Sexton is an electric car advocate and consultant hi. . Chelsea their quick. . Sketch here, , how close are we to the next wave of electric vehicles and what will their capabilities be? ? We're going to start to see more of them in the next year or two obviously things are slightly influx with the pandemic but most of the automakers are still trying to be within a few months of their original targets and we're seeing everything from plug in hybrid jeep wrangler with thirty miles of electric range for around town driving and. . Gasoline after that, , all the way up to f one, , fifty and riven with a few hundred miles of expected range and I'm interested in that F one fifty story because that Ford truck is the top selling truck in America I think there were nine hundred thousand f-series trucks sold last year and I see that they're retooling a factory in Michigan to build the first all electric f one fifty. . What do we know about that role? ? Not very much. . We're expecting it late twenty, , twenty, , one, , early twenty, , twenty, , two something to that effect and they've not released really any specs other than videos of hauling trains and things to try to prove that electric vehicles really do have as much more performance than gasoline trucks, , what other electric pickups SUV's Few years I'm watching all of them. . There still are some open questions about everyone of them in that most vs today of any model have been sold only in California or the carb states owens have mandates requiring evt's there's not that many vehicles that are available across the country, , and that will be a huge thing to prove what the trucks regarding who's serious, , and WHO's not. . That's an open question for folks like Ford, , will they make these things in volume and sell them nationwide and really get behind them with the marketing and dealer support or is this going to be more of what we refer to as a compliance car which is basically Will sell as many as we have to in the places we have to, , but not really in it with their hearts well, , and part of the answer to that might be consumer attitudes. . Right? ? I mean you helped launch an electric vehicle for GM back in the nineties. . Have you seen consumer attitudes change in that time and if they changed enough to bring in the truck SUV drivers ironically that generation in the nineties had more trucks than SUV's in it than than small cars everyone knows the ev one that was the one I was involved in but Chevy and Ford made pickups at the time and Honda and Toyota made small SUV's so it's Sort of feels like we're yanking the automakers back toward where they started. . There's still a lot of education that's needed. There . are lots of people that are not even aware of electric vehicles, , but in part that's because they've never seen one and they've never been available and so people can't buy what they don't know as even possible. . So there's a lot of education required on that front but the interesting thing about electric vehicles in general is that it is the only example in the history of the automotive industry in which the industry itself has required demand to predate and continually exceeds supply. . What. That . sounds like is every time you hear it automaker executive say when we see demand for electric cars will start to build them. . So it's always been the market polling for from the automakers versus the automakers trying to build their own market for something. . So it's a parallel. . Yes. . Of course, , we need to do more education, , but we also need to start building things that people can see our else. . They're never going to be aware of them in want to buy one. . What about the politics of this? ? How much do you see that playing into the success of the next generation of truckin SUV models I mean we'll some people just not wanNA drive one because of their political beliefs it's possible however. . The irony is that there has always been a fair amount of right wing support for electric vehicles because they use domestic energy, , they keep more money in the local economy. . We're not sending money overseas before an oil, , and so it doesn't always get talked about in this administration because the politics kind of ebb and flow depending on the administration but there is a fair amount of conservative support and they're not just sort of this liberal technology that they're made out to be. . So all politics tend to be kind of transient and. . I've watched it shift back and forth over the years. . So I don't expect the current politics will be permanent <hes>. . But at the same time, this , has always been if not politically driven certainly policy driven it is those external incentives and mandates that have helped compel with the advocates and market asking for them electric vehicles for twenty five years, , and it will probably remain. So . for the next several at least are there any other barriers you see to electric truck an SUV sales? ? The single biggest barrier today is lack of product. . The second biggest is lack of marketing and awareness and education and people not being able to buy what they don't know about and the third biggest dealerships across the board with any EV model if dealers aren't comfortable and wanting to sell vs they're not going to be successful at it, , and so we can put billions of dollars into those first two things. . But at the end of the day, , if someone walks into a Ford dealer in his told well now, , you'd really rather have the gasoline f one, , fifty, , not the electric one that one's Kinda goofy. . All of that money and effort is wasted what about the pace of change and I know we're focused on electric vehicles today on the transportation emissions but overall with climate emissions I mean you you live in California you've been watching this for decades. . We've got these terrible fires in California and Oregon this week are we moving fast enough now? ? We're not and that is not a widespread enough opinion yet. . But regardless of why they come to the table, , the best thing we can do is make more options available and attractive. So . it doesn't matter if someone is coming to an AV because of climate change or air pollution or any other reason if they're coming for Torque and horsepower I'm fine with that. . The goal is to build more of the table as we have more seats at it not be so concerned about why people come and sit down I'm all about the Torque and horsepower Chelsea, , Sexton electric-car advocate and consultant.
