Electric car vs Ferrari

Electric car vs Ferrari Porsche Carerra GT electric-vehicles-cars-bikes.blogspot.comOnly about 15% of the energy from the fuel you put in your tank gets used to move your car down the road or run useful accessories, such as air conditioning. The rest of the energy is lost to engine and drive line inefficiencies and idling. Therefore, the potential to improve fuel efficiency with advanced technologies is enormous. With an Electric Car it costs just .00 per 100kms with MUCH more performance …

    So you’ve never seen a Tesla then? They look surprisingly like…er…a Ferrari, but cost less.

    The point is, ANYONE can make an EV that looks like ANY car, or weren’t you paying attention these past few years?

    Perhaps you need to learn a little about how an electric motor works. Maybe you don’t actually know what the ‘R’ in RPM means.

    The car is ONE BIG SAFETY/ROLL CAGE. It’s a spaceframe chassis which is far stronger than a monocoque design. It’s basically what is used to give open single seater racing cars their strength and lightness, and is added to rally cars to make them safer than the stock monocoque body. So in the event of an accident I know which chassis design I’d rather be in! There really are some stupid people on here.

    the video is great man !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    it’s simply a fact that electric motors have full torque available from 1rpm to max whereas an IC engine first has to develop (far less) torque and then marry that up to the drive train (man or auto). Full hybrids can easily push IC cars to one side simply by having a small onboard ICE as the generator (producing far less CO2). We could be there now, but politics (oil etc.) and lobbying stops it. Quite simple. Full hybrid cars will have more than 2000Nm of torque. NO IC cars have that now.

    Politics?? Are you serious?? You really think oil company cronies are going to every university and every independent electric car shop and shutting them down?? God you’re naive.

    For all those times I’m racing the 1/4 mile (yeah, right) I’ll take the X1. for the other 99.999% of the time when I don’t have 45 minutes to charge up every 200 miles, I’ll take the Porsche.

    kfumike: No you’re saying that. I didn’t describe how they have done it, you just did. The entire world knows that there has always been an oil lobby. And classic car makers have had no interest in the past in taking the risk of swapping to a technology that is risky. Car mkers could make the full hybrid but they don’t. Oil companies have indeed supported car makers big time and maintained an interest that fuel burners remain the mainstream vehicles. That may change soon, but it will take a whi

    stupid americans. its an ariel atom. what do americans kow about cars huh?

  16. #16 by vexviper at July 4th, 2009

    ITS NOT WHAT YOU’RE THINKING IT IS!!!! Same frame but not with a Honda motor but an electric one. Normally I would just educate you but since you have to disrespect the entire American nation Here you have it!. Now EAT IT! You stupid ignorant piece of fucking shit! You’re the kind of person that would judge and jury a whole entire race for one persons crime. People like you need to die!

    Mmmm… Fast, hot, and so delightfully silent. I hate how loud cars are. That thing just rocks!

    power to weight. big deal.

  19. #19 by tsport100 at July 24th, 2009

    You do the math

    Ferrari 360 Spider – 400Bhp / 3197lb
    Porsche Carrera GT – 605Bhp / 3043lb
    Wrighspeed X1 – 220Bhp / 1536lb

    how come it still has the intake? and how can they call it an x1 when buell had an x1 years ago? no copyright?

  21. #21 by tallkid at August 18th, 2009

    it doesn’t have an intake. it’s a fully electric engine. there might be vents to cool the generator, but that’s about it….

  22. #22 by tallkid at August 18th, 2009

    it isn’t power to weight. it’s torque. the electric motor doesn’t have to rev to get torque. the torque is always there and if controlled properly, it will have maximum grip at all times…if you watch the part with the carerra gt, you’ll hear the tires from the porche spinning. listen to the engine and how the revs go up and down because it is losing traction. not a problem with the electric car at all

  23. #23 by princessjennacat at August 19th, 2009

    So it’s only like .4s quicker across the quarter than an R35 GTR? .. Doesn’t seem that great to me …

  24. #24 by kfumike at August 26th, 2009

    trident3b . Find me ONE shred of evidence, just one little objective journalistic piece of information that ties oil companies to car companies. Seriously, that shit is getting old. I’ve been hearing it for 30 years now and NO ONE has ever been able to show me this backroom contract that oil companies have with car companies. Onus of proof is on you, as youre the one perpetuating the nutball conspiracy theory.

    ok now let’s make a Ferrari electric car! haha
