I've never owned a gasoline (combustion) powered car before so I don't really think about all those things. But I really want a Gasoline powered WRX- those things are so cool!
wow! You must be considerable younger than me. Wouldn't it be cool to be one of the first to never own an ICE in your lifetime?
I'm turning twenty in a month so I am pretty young. I got my eSpark right about when I turned 17, I spent an entire summer saving up for that car. I learned about e-cars when I was 15 in Alaska after hiking to a rather depressing glacier and it made me realize combustion doesn't make sense. So now I only drive electric and the house-on-wheels I am designing is combustion free. Most of my friends are e-natives too, so we mostly complain about over-priced superchargers. We still like gasoline cars, but see them as toys instead of a useful technology.
