The future, like it or not, is electric cars. The main constraint is battery development, but theyíre making good strides.
The first successful EV(electric vehicle) for the masses will be limited in range but acceptable for people to do short commutes
to work and back on a regular basis, or running local errands. Right now wannabes are trying to figure out a way to challenge
Tesla for market share. The best way is to be cheaper, but without volume they canít make them cheap enough. Catch 22.
So they're all try to think of a gimmick.



Oh look, a í67 Mustang!
Wrong, Capitalist Running Dog!
Thatís an R67 from Aviar in Russia, the gimmick they hope will fire the juices of fat America capitalists with itís throwback style.
Yes, it has the Mustang looks but thatís it.



It has Automatic Pilot Driver Assist, voice activated controls, electronic stability and traction controls, climate control, Bluetooth,
WiFi, LED lighting, six airbags, dual motor all wheel drive, about 800hp, 100 kWh battery good for about 310 miles, zero to 60 in
2.2 seconds, 155 mph max, 20 inch wheels, improved aerodynamics, and a spoiler that deploys at 75 mph and retracts at 50.



You may not be aware that EVs are too quiet to be safe for pedestrians so the have an external sound system to make noise.
This one, ďSimulates the operation of the engine and exhaust system of the legendary Ford Mustang Shelby GT500

Aside ~ The articles keep calling the í67 Mustang the start of the muscle cars. It is not, it was the start of the Pony cars.
The í64 Pontiac GTO was the start of the muscle cars.

The Brits are getting into the act too.

The Queen in effect owns to Royal Mail.
The Royal Mail has formed a partnership with Charge(above) called Arrival, to build RM vehicles.
Arrival's CEO Denis Sverdlov, is also co-owner of YOTA the Russian cell phone/internet provider.
Common knowledge says Putin has a part in that, and every Russian moneymaker.
So Trump isn't the only one linked to Putin, so is Liz.

The top one (Russian Mustang) looks like nothing more than renderings.

Or good screen captures from a video game.

That's what Liz and Putin would have you believe.

The Corvette is not a muscle car nor a pony car, it's America's Sports Car.

A pretty anchor though, and the '55 at least had some power.
