Tomahawk Electric Supercar aims for 2018 production date, yet unspecified: I wake up with a new idea for ‘something’ automotive every morning. Over my first cup of coffee, as the cobwebs of not such a great night sleep gives way to a sense of clarity, I more often than not return to the reality of the day: Bringing an automotive concept to market is a daunting, and more often than not, insurmountable task. This company has raised over $400,000,000, still no car.Elio_Motors_McCants

Don’t read me wrong here, I applaud anyone, or any group for that matter, that finds the collective balls to do so. But truly, do we need or want an electric supercar that claims Zero to 60 MPH in 2 seconds? Hell no! And by the way. Looking to the headline photo above, where’s that second row of seats go?

Dubuc Motors wants you to invest in an electric driven hyper-car future

That’s cool. Hey, it’s your money: Reading through a pile of press releases this morning, I came across a news release from CNW Group/Dubuc Motors of Sunnyvale , California -- smack in the heart of Silicon Valley. In today’s world of automotive development, Tech is taking the lead in a market that is slowly, yet inevitably, destined to dump internal combustion motivated personal transportation for the high torque, zero emissions, benefits of plug-in stand alone electric propulsion. Torque News drives the all new Chevy Bolt.

Dubuc Motors is going for the title of “ quickest-long-range production EV on the planet,” and according to the News Release, will bring production to fruition sometime in 2018 -- date yet to be announced. Here’s an electric car for the masses that’s been in development for a decade, still no car.

No price, no availability -- Hey! Bring your checkbook

Looking top the numbers, when and if produced, the wide-body 4-place Tomahawk Electric Hyper Supercar will bring chiropractic adjustment required, zero to 60 MPH speeds to the track and street. It won’t be cheap, speed never is. But who knows, it could happen. We’ve seen monster electric like this on Pikes Peak.Monster_Pikes_Peak
