Reply to "Intermeccanica going all electric"

 There are already a few who are doing electric conversions, I think mostly on Special Edition cars, and I think it's one of their dealers located in Colorado. It would be interesting to compare price points on the SE's vs. what Intermeccanica will charge for theirs. I have no idea how much success there has been selling our cars as plug ins.

Assuming that the buyers of the estimated 12-14 current gas burners that IM puts out per year want to remain with the dinosaurs like us, that would seem to be a nice little piece of business. If that business gets mostly redirected to SE, I wonder what that means to the wait time for cars in Kevin's queue, or, over time, does it represent an opportunity to expand a bit? Time will tell. 

I also wonder how long the allure of these cars will hold up. Most of the guys on this site seem to be like me, taking some meds to ward off the aches, pains and chronic symptoms of age related diseases and problems. We can't hold out forever. Dead end sometime in the future.

These are the cars that we coveted in our youth and our offspring and their offspring mostly coveted, and I imagine will acquire, the popular cars of their youth.

There isn't much of a market for model T's and A's cause the folks who grew up with them and bought them later in life have mostly gone to the used car lot in the sky.

Make hay while the sun shines, boys and girls!
