tesla v bmw i8 Q&A Review

What makes a car a sports car?

Brat Kranenberg wrote one of the answers to this thread, and he lists things that “must apply” to be a Sports car. With all due respect, let me attempt to refute most of them: Manual gearbox - not even available on some Ferraris. This archaic notion would take us back to more manual controls like spark advance and choke control. A manual gearbox is not a requirement to be a sports car. The 212 mph Corvette ZR1 is available with an 8 speed automatic, and it’s definitely a sports car. Rearwheel drive - I have a MiniCooper S and I would beg to differ. And the Audi Quattro series are definitely sports cars, like winners of the Pike’s Peak hill climb. And then there is the Fiat 500 Abarth and Volkswagen GTI - which are definitely sports cars. Petrol engine - I drove a 3.5 liter Audi A5 at Nurburgring that was wicked fast, & Audi diesels have won at LeMans several times, and BMW a 320d won the 24 hour of Nurburgring (over-all winner in 1998). Check out the Audi R8 V12 TDI, which is undoubtedly an (exotic) sports car. Light weight - A Bentley GT V8 S Coupe is with 500 horsepower quite heavy, at over 6,000 pounds. But it’s definitely a sports car. Oversteered or neutral - nearly all BMWs, including their sports cars, are set up for mild-understeer, which is considered safer, and correctible with throttle lift or light braking, which comes natural to most drivers. The famous BMW tuner, Dinan, sells suspension mods that shift it towards oversteer, which makes the rear-end a bit loose, and is correctable with throttle input, somewhat counter intuitive to the average driver, but done properly, allows you to power through the curves faster. So oversteer does not disqualify the car from being a sports car. Or else you’d have to disqualify the BMW M2, M3 & M4 Good handling and cornering - generally agree. Often, this relates to stiff anti-sway bars and tire choices, at the expense of ride comfort. Good suspension, not too soft - generally agree, but really has more to do with unsprung-weight ratio and shock/strut choice (or settings). ESP, ABS and such must be able to be toggled by the driver - generally agree, but keep in mind, the #1 car in single car accidents in the US was the 2004 Ford GT, which did not have these driver aids at all. Low centre of gravity - generally agree, but that means you’d have to rule out SUVs, where the S is for sports. Off roading is a motorsport too. Two seater - that would rule out most Porsches, and all sports sedans. It would also rule out BMW M2s, M3s & M4s. In fact, I think a 4 door car can be a sports car. Check out the BMW M6 GT Coupe, which was the fastest car BMW made for a couple of years. It has 4 seats and 4 doors. Small to medium sized - that would rule out the fastest sport sedans at the “Ring, including the Cadillac CTS-V and the M5. Seats that support hard cornering - generally agree Must have a sporty look - sporty is in the eye of the beholder, but don’t forget the Buick GNX, which was the fastest 0–60 car in America in the ‘80s. Very plain-looking black mid-size car based on the Buick Regal. Same goes for the BMW M5, which is barely distinguishable from the 530i, but once the sedan lap-record holder at the ‘Ring. Must sound sporty - I guess that means loud, and I don’t agree. Tesla makes sports cars. The carbon-fiber BMW i8 hybrid is their current top-of-the-line sports car, and it’s so quiet that the sound system makes fake internal combustion engine sound for the “traditionalist” in the cockpit. Mid to high engine power - that would rule out most basic British sports car roadsters like the Triumph and the MGs. Some Lotus cars have 190hp engines they get from Toyota. So, my point is, there are no hard and fast rules as to what are the attributes of a sports car. It is a combination of things that take the car beyond basic transportation and comfort, and makes compromises for more driver engagement - less road isolation - higher performance - and good old sporting fun.

Which new cars are most likely to be future classics?

The current 2015 models that I believe will be collectible in 30 years, in no particular order: - Call me crazy, but all-original versions of "cheap" sports cars - like the WRX sTI, Golf GTI/Golf R, Focus ST and Fiesta ST - should be popular with collectors in as little as 15 years. Most of these cars are being molested by enthusiasts (a practice I wholeheartedly endorse), so if you can find one that's all-original and well cared for, you should have a nice little collectible on your hands. - Most of Audi's coupes should be collectible. They're great-looking vehicles that should stand the test of time. - Any M or AMG packaged BMW or Mercedes, any Shelby Mustang, any Z/28 Camaro, Hellcats, etc. etc. Limited edition packages of powerful and/or good-looking cars tend to be somewhat collectible. - Popular or limited production SUVs like the Toyota Land Cruiser, FJ Cruiser, Subaru Crosstrek, SRT Grand Cherokee, Escalade, or G-Class Mercedes should be collectible in years to come. I also think the little Fiat 500 SUV will be a collector's item, merely because it's been such a tremendous flop (commercially speaking). - True station wagons - not stretched out crossovers like the Toyota Highlander - seem like an endangered species now more than ever. I'm not sure when every station wagon will become a collector's item, but I think we're getting close to that point. SUVs are definitely supplanting them. The CTS-V wagon seems like a collectible now, btw... - Cutting edge cars like the BMW i3 and i8, Tesla P85+ D, SL550, and fuel cell powered cars should be collectible, only it's hard to say why at this point. Will they be the vehicles that changed the past, or quirky failures? - Odd-looking cars like the Murano convertible, previously mentioned Fiat 500L, Nissan Cube, or just about anything made by Lincoln might be collectible...we'll know more in a few years. It depends on how quickly they look aged or strange. But I'd lay money that the 500L and Murano drop top will be collectible for all the wrong reasons in 30 years. Please note that this list excludes the "obvious" cars like the exotic supercars (every Koenigsegg is a collectible), storied brands (Porsche, Ferrari, Lambo, etc.), and super limited edition vehicles. Those are collectible because of their relative rarity. This also leaves out the collectible nature of any popular family/economy car. In 30-40 years, Corollas, Camrys, Accords, etc. will be collectible if they're in good shape. That's basically what Tri-Fives, Impalas, and Novas are today - popular cars that become collectible because of their solid styling and recognition. Finally, anything is collectible if it gets old enough...

What percentage of Tesla owners solely own the vehicle for its low environmental impact?

Well, I guess I fall in between the two answers below this (don’t know if Quora changes the order. I have been extremely irritated with automakers all my life because they don’t make the cars I want. I have a little money, care about the environment, but I also care about having a comfortable ride. When the Prius arrived on the scene Honda’s hybrid was already available, but it didn’t have power windows. That may not seem like a big deal to someone planning the vehicles of the future, but I had been driving Hondas for 30 years because they were the best combination of fuel efficiency and comfort I could find. Toyota took me to an entirely new level. I literally had two Hondas whose driver’s seats wore a hole because I couldn’t get in and out without bumping the edge of the seat. All Toyotas have about four inches more headroom than most other cars of similar size. If you are over 5′6″ this may be important for comfort. I knew I was going to buy an EV, but I didn’t know when. My wife’s dealer-friend wanted me to test-drive the BMW I8 (it was slightly used and deeply discounted in price). I literally could not get into the car when the seats were in her position, and when I put them all the way back I had a really hard time getting in and out. I have back problems, and this was an immediate deal-killer, although the prospect of a 17 mile range on electric, compared to a 300 mile range on a larger car that cost less wasn’t thrilling me either. The BMW is a whole lot of fun to drive if you can fit in the car. My thing is that I won’t do things for energy purposes unless they are things that other people will think make sense. I have solar water heating, and a solar pool heater, but not solar panels. I live in Ohio, where the subsidy to rooftop solar was just terminated by the Republicans who are going to jail (if you read about the Speaker of the House, just remember, they ALL knew what was going on. Six months of hearings made sure of that). I’d like to have a powerwall, and it is about the same price as a propane backup generator, which is the other option (we live in the country, and have frequent outages, but none of them have ever been long enough to justify $4000 or more in “protection”. I contract with a different utility for 100% windpower, because it is 4.59 cents per KWh, and the cheapest I can get dirty power for is only about a penny less. So the Tesla was sort of a bunch of factors, including my daughter needing a car and my 275K miles on a 2008 Prius left a car that still needed some driving. Original battery, giving me a little confidence in battery technology didn’t hurt. I’m told I got the last 2019 model 3 with rear wheel drive and extended range available in the U.S., in June, 2019. It is a little more luxury than I would have had in my imaginary perfect car. Once I had the 240 V circuit installed in the garage (cutting a full charge from about 15 hours to about 5 hours) my range anxiety vanished. I had already made a 600 mile trip and was confident in the Tesla supercharger network (between Dayton and St. Louis). One other HUGE factor. The Tesla costs almost double what my last Prius (I had 2) did, but interest rates are so low that the payments are only about 50% more than the payments on my last Prius. I’m also getting older, and feel like I deserve a nice car. My license plate says “NO GHG”. (NO CO2 was already taken). Unfortunately, a lot of people read it as “NO CHG”. I’ll start telling them there is no charge for reading my license plate wrong. In my earlier years I would have looked carefully at the other models (there are two times as many full range EV’s today as there were a year ago in the U.S.). I’ll consider helping one of my kids buy a Bolt, and if that ever becomes an issue I’ll look at the full range, including used cars. BTW, I’m telling everyone that the Tesla Model 3 door handles really suck, because you can’t open them without the same hand being free (left side of car, left hand) which is exactly NOT how most people arrive at their car with a bag of groceries). I wish the company all the best, but they have to change that door handle. It is especially bad for handicapped people. But I didn’t figure that out until I’d owned the car for a while. There are a couple of other tweaks, but this is by far the nicest car I’ve ever owned, and the environmental aspects of it are wonderful. I’ve spent 35 years teaching people how to save money with efficiency technology, and now that utility scale wind and solar generation are cheaper than fossil or nuclear generation from existing plants, all we have to do is built the new clean energy.

If Tesla motors has made all its patents open, why is a good enough electric car not available in India?

There is a Hindi saying…”,nakal maarne ke liye bhi akal ki zarurat hoti hai,” (translation: It takes a decent amount of intelligence even to copy something correctly). Even though Tesla releases it’s patents, ,India does not have sufficiently qualified engineers, who can understand the patent and apply it on their products. Every car company has it’s own ‘benchmarking facilities’ where competitor cars are ‘analysed’ for their positive and negative points. But guess what, ,you cannot blindly copy those features, in your car because you can only guess the underlying reason why a particular design feature was provided in the first place. Secondly, the technology used by Tesla may work well in US and Europe. But the same technology ,may not be directly applied in Indian markets,. This will cause them to find a work around which may not be as elegant as the original. Thirdly, ,no company will come forward and announce, ‘We have developed this product using the free patents provided by Tesla’ ,. This creates an image problem. Image is why MSIL continues to rule the passenger car market and global brands like VW/ GM are struggling in India. Fourthly, ,India as a market is not ready for electric cars,. It is not even ready for sports cars/ super cars/ V-8 engines/ roadsters etc. whose technology precedes electric cars. Why do you think majority of the auto makers have brought only their basic offerings to the Indian table? A smooth ‘4 cylinder’ engine is our want (as per online forums) compared to the noisy ‘3 cylinder’ engines (provided on Ford Ecoboost 1L engine and BMW i8). ,Please give us more of the same and nothing too radical for our tastes, (Reva/ Ignis anyone). and finally, even though our power generation capacity is increasing, we still ,do not have infrastructure to support mass electric car movement,. Middle class families balk at the thought of their light bill increasing by Rs.100 and even switch off zero bulbs when not in use. They prefer traveling by Metro/ Local train to save costs. Cost/ Km of an electric car also needs to be competitive to the fossil fuel powered car. Hope I could be of help.

The cars, trucks, and SUVs seen here won't reach dealer lots for anywhere from a few months to a few years. Some of them are about to roll down the assembly line. Others haven't emerged from the design studio yet. We're telling you about them now, though, because these are the vehicles that will matter, regardless of how many boring crossovers automakers puke out. These are worth the wait. This video will give us information about future cars. 2021 Alfa Romeo GTV It's difficult not to love Alfa Romeo's Giulia Quadrifoglio. In spite of the sports sedan's tragic reliability record, it's still an absolute joy to drive and looks incredible. Who wouldn't want that in even sexier form, like, say, a two-door coupe? Good news! One is on its way, and it will resurrect the iconic GTV name and add electrification to the Quadrifoglio's 505-hp twin-turbo V-6. Expect up to 600 horsepower. 2021 Alfa Romeo Tonale The upcoming Alfa Romeo Tonale promises to be a rare beauty in a sea of luxury-subcompact crossovers. Plus it's Alfa Romeo's first hybrid model. Previewed by a concept model at last year's Geneva auto show, the production version should arrive later this year, starting around $35,000. 2024 Aston Martin Vanquish Aston Martin's next Vanquish will be a mid-engine supercar targeting the defining dream machines of the moment—cars such as the Ferrari F8 Tributo, Lamborghini's Huracán replacement, and the McLaren 720S and 765LT. Previewed by a concept car at the 2019 Geneva auto show (pictured), the Vanquish should start just north of $300,000 when it arrives in 2023. 2021 Audi e-Tron GT Audi's electric e-Tron lineup grows for 2021, with the shapely e-Tron GT joining today's e-Tron (no name, just e-Tron) crossover. There's no dancing around it: the GT is aimed squarely at Tesla's Model S. Audi is hoping it will deliver more than 250 miles of driving range and nearly 600 horsepower from a pair of electric motors (one per axle). Underneath its ,Blade Runner ,exterior hides, the same J1 architecture developed for fellow Volkswagen Group member Porsche, for its Taycan EV. 021 Audi Q4 e-Tron The Audi Q4 e-Tron is smaller and cheaper than the e-Tron and e-Tron Sportback, and it's aimed at the core of the crossover market. The Q4 e-Tron was initially previewed by a concept car (pictured) shown at the 2019 Geneva auto show. It will be the fourth electric Audi to come stateside but the first to use VW's MEB architecture designed exclusively for electric vehicles. It, too, will offer a slightly sleeker Sportback version. 2024 BMW i8 M BMW is working on a follow-up to the plug-in-hybrid i8 halo car, which in and of itself never really lived up to expectations. Previewed by the 2019 BMW Vision M Next concept car, this yet-to-be-named replacement (we've taken to calling it the i8 M) should place greater emphasis on performance than its predecessor did. It could also set the Bimmer world on fire with its retro M1-inspired style—it could have rear louvers, people! 2022 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 The upcoming Chevy Corvette Z06 will be the first of several upcoming ultra-high-perform­ance variants of the C8 Corvette. We expect it to go on sale in early 2021 as a 2022 model, starting at about $85,000. It will use a naturally aspirated DOHC 32-valve 5.5-liter V-8. Plus, it has a flat-plane crank, just like a Ferrari V-8. It should rev to between 8500 and 9000 rpm, spit out 600-plus horsepower, and shriek like something from Ferrari. 2022 Ferrari Purosangue SUV Ferrari is finally taking the leap and building an SUV. For a brand that built its reputation on racing (cars, that is), this new project is quite the departure. For now, the creation is being referred to by the Purosangue name, which is Italian for "thoroughbred," and will go up against the likes of the Bentley Bentayga, Lamborghini Urus, and Rolls-Royce Cullinan—if not in pure performance, at least in price. 2022 Ford Fusion Active Selling a station wagon in an American car market infatuated with SUVs is a risky play for a manufacturer. But once Ford kills off the Fusion sedan later this year or early next year, a lifted version of that stigmatized-yet-highly-practical type of vehicle will soon be as close as shoppers will come to finding a new family car in a Blue Oval showroom. Enter the Ford Fusion Active, which we've seen in spy photos and leaked images so far. 2022 Ford Maverick In a move that's sure to shake up the truck establishment, Ford is planning a third pickup model that will be smaller than the mid-size Ranger. Built on the same unibody platform as the Escape and Bronco Sport crossovers, the Maverick could be a true compact truck the likes of which we haven't seen in some time. It's slated to arrive later in 2021 or in early 2022, possibly with a starting price in the low-$20,000 range. 2022 GMC Hummer EV In an amazing twist of fate, General Motors' gas-guzzling middle-finger-flying Hummer brand, discontinued in 2010, is poised to make a comeback for 2022 as an all-electric sub-brand of GMC. The GMC Hummer EV SUT pickup truck offers up to 1000 horsepower and GMC claims it's capable of blasting from zero to 60 mph in just 3.0 seconds. It's set to go on sale at the end of 2021 in loaded First Edition form, with an SUV version to follow. 2022 Honda Civic Type R Honda confirmed that a new Civic Type R is on the way, and it should have a more mature look as previewed by a prototype of the 11th-generation Civic sedan. The second red-badged Civic to arrive in the U.S. will have a more powerful turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder under the hood—hopefully with a better soundtrack—mated to a six-speed manual gearbox, and Honda didn't rule out a quick-shifting dual-clutch transmission, either. We've heard rumors about a hybrid all-wheel-drive powertrain, but we think it's unlikely—at least at launch, which should be toward the end of 2021. 2023 Hyundai RM20 N Of all the newcomers to the mid-engine segment, no vehicle highlights the current sports-car zeitgeist quite like a mid-engine Hyundai, which could be called the RM20 N. When it arrives in two or three years, expect the Hyundai to bring mid-engine dynamics to a new level of affordability. As we understand it, the decision-makers in South Korea are still weighing whether their car should be a $40,000 Hyundai or a $70,000 Genesis. In our minds, there's no question. It's too soon for Genesis to challenge Corvettes and Porsches, but a proper sports car could validate both N and Hyundai. 2021 Hyundai Santa Cruz The Hyundai Santa Cruz is the automaker's foray into the pickup market. It follows Honda's approach rather than the formula that American manufacturers perfected. The unibody truck will be offered with a single bed length, a four-door crew cab, and a choice of four-cylinder engines. We expect to see Santa Fe's 2.4-liter and turbocharged 2.0-liter inline-four paired with an eight-speed automatic and all-wheel drive. 2022 Jaguar XJ Jaguar's full-size XJ sedan is getting old, but you wouldn't know it by looking at the seductive four-door. Time marches on, however, and Jaguar is looking to replace the XJ (however handsome it is now) with an all-new model for 2021. And Jag is going bold: The next XJ will be fully electric, with some 300 miles of driving range and DC fast charging. 2022 Jeep Grand Cherokee Early in 2021, Jeep will launch an entirely new Grand Cherokee. It likely won't make it into buyers' hands until later in the year, as production has been delayed. What those new owners will get is a Jeep based on a version of the Alfa Romeo Giorgio platform found under the Giulia sedan and Stelvio SUV. The Grand Cherokee will be significantly longer than the trim little Stelvio, though. Not only will the Jeep's wheelbase surpass the Alfa's 110.9 inches, we expect it to be longer than the current Grand Cherokee's 114.7 inches. Not only will be roomier than the outgoing model, but it will also offer a three-row version with up to seven seats, as pictured here in spy photos. 2022 Jeep Grand Wagoneer Jeep is bringing back the iconic Wagoneer nameplate for a new full-size SUV offering. Shown so far in concept form, the Wagoneer, and Grand Wagoneer will compete with the likes of the Chevy Tahoe and Suburban. They will use a version of the Ram 1500's body-on-frame platform, with the Grand Wagoneer being the more luxurious version costing over $100,000 fully loaded. Three rows of seats will be standard, as will four-wheel drive. We expect V-6 and V-8 engine options along with hybrid and plug-in hybrid variants. 2023 Land Rover Defender 80 The upcoming Defender 80 is a new baby Land Rover set to be positioned below the recently revived Defender in the brand hierarchy. If it reaches the U.S. market, it could provide a more affordable entry point to the off-road-oriented Defender range. U.K. media reports have named it the 80—given that Land Rover calls the two- and four-door Defenders the 90 and the 110, respectively—although there is no confirmation of that. 2022 Lexus LQ Lexus is still lacking the modern, high-end SUV that virtually every other luxury vehicle maker has to offer affluent shoppers. The upcoming Lexus LQ, which will serve as a sleek range-topping crossover, should address that shortcoming. Previewed by the LF-1 Limitless concept (pictured), the longitudinal-engine LQ should share key structural elements with the LS sedan. It also should share its powertrains, including the 416-hp twin-turbo V-6 and its 354-hp hybrid powertrain. An F performance model might even pack a twin-turbo V-8 good for 600-plus horsepower. Maserati MC20 The upcoming MC20 is a mid-engine reminder that Maserati exists. Rather than a successor to the ultrarare, hyper-expensive MC12, the MC20 is a run-of-the-mill six-figure Italian sports car offered in both coupe and convertible forms. Maserati promises that the MC20 marks the start of a new phase in the brand's history, which it desperately needs if its vehicles are going to be relevant again. Maserati recently released technical details about the MC20's twin-turbo V-6 engine, which will produce 621 horsepower.
