Left In The Dust!
The title was the top ten most anticipated cars 0i 2014 so I took a look at them at:
Top 10 Most Anticipated Cars of 2014
So I now realize that my " taste " in cars is passe because only one car appealed to me but I do not have $120,000.00 laying around to purchase one of them!!
I'm quite glad there are several motors on that list that wont ever see the light of day in Europe.
And what have Fiat done to that 500? They originally put the retro body on the mechanics of a Panda, and charged more for it, and it was a success. Now they've moved that retro body into something that looks more like the original Panda, but kept the 500 name? That, I suspect, is 'Marketing'.
Most current car designs no longer appeal to me, either, but I'm guessing that appearance is much lower on the priority list these days.

Does your admiration for them span across this little beauty

Well yes. I mean just look at it! Just don't park it next to a DB9...
cousinlucky, I wouldn't mind winning (in a raffle, perhaps) one of several different models in that listing, but it's doubtful that I'd ever purchase any of them, even if I had the extra cash. I could have purchased 3 new cars for the price of the last one that I purchased and have been regretting it somewhat ever since.
Gas powered may become the past.

I might have to reconvert my old 1963 F100 FlatBed PU from gas and propane to electric eventually. No power brakes,windows, and the back bed should handle a ton of golf cart batteries with a charger (I have 3 phase transformers at my place).
As far as looks go. I prefer scooters.
Maybe even build my next vehicle. We get more leeway than you northern city boys with all your laws. :p

I often wonder how folks would cope with $50.00 a gallon gasoline prices?
Rocky, you need to build an electric motorcycle.
