We get what we get and we don’t get upset.
I don’t know where this mantra comes from but we should keep it in mind it at all times. We should have it tattooed, plastered on the wall. We get what we get and we can’t really complain either. And what we’re getting is electric cars.
I enjoy my job immensely, travelling the world to drive cars is the best job in the world (well, it is to me) and it is definitely the only job I truly want but when all is said and done, people who talk about cars do two things. 1, they report facts and 2, they express opinions and let’s get this straight from the get-go, the line between fact and opinion is thin these days and opinions don’t really matter.
Automobility LA was a great show, absolutely amazing. The vibe, the town, the GT pub, the parties and the afterparties, and the afterparties’ afterparties. But, when condensed and summarized, and wearing my serious trousers for a moment, it was all about technology, electric mobility and security.
And that’s a good thing.
Personally, and that’s an opinion, I’m a huge fan of electric cars, not because they’re green or because they’re relevant, but because they’re fun. An electric car gives you 100 % of what it’s got immediately. No hesitation, no friction, no drag. And no clutch. Which means instant torque. All of it. All the time. Moving on to facts, electric cars are indeed very relevant. It is what the market wants, and the market usually gets what it wants.
2017 was great, my best year so far, and I’m definitely looking forward to 2018. And I believe you should too. Because we get it both ways. It’s a win-win situation. If you’re into electric cars, just know that Lamborghini recently introduced the Terzo Millennio, which is probably as exciting as green cars can get. Even though the teaser we got was gunmetal grey. And if you don’t like electric cars, well, sit down and think about it for a second. In recent years, we may have been bombarded by electric-this, and eco-that, but we’ve also been given the monstrous, mind-boggling, W16 quad-turbo, 1500 ps Bugatti Chiron.
So the future looks bright. It looks good. And if you’re not interested, it hasn’t got to look green either.
See you in 2018.
