Henry’s production of cars, both speedsters and roadsters, is not very large on a yearly basis. These days, he may turn out 12 to 14 cars a year, if all goes well. So we are not talking a massive shift here. Each car is completely bespoke, tailred to the individual owner’s likes, desires, whims.
So, his going electric for the 356 cars won’t make much difference, in terms of volume, in the automotive world. It will make a large difference to those car lovers who know of Intermeccanica, and who are not looking to the future of gas powered vehicles, but it is mainly a symbolic difference in this case. It is nothing - in terms of news - in comparison to when Porsche abandoned air and went to water cooled cars.
But, it is still another indication - for some of us older car nuts - that our world is changing more than we may want it to.
Marty, I will join you in that group session...
