It's car time again fans! The current count is down to one, and that empty space in the garage is pulling at me to fill it. The much loved and eternal favorite 1996 Porsche 993 C4 sits alone, after sharing it's space with an Italian rocketship masquerading as a limousine. There should be no surprise here as to what's coming next, it's a Smart car. It's the limited edition electric Smart, only 250 currently being exported to the US from Germany.
You didn't think we would buy a normal Smart now, really?!? With the Fiat 500 officially available, the Toyota IQ on it's way shortly under the Scion brand, the Aston Martin Cygnet still not a real option (yet) the reason-to-buy has to be compelling. Electric it is. Let the battles for the lithium resources in Bolivia officially begin!
I have to say that the FROM > TO swing on this one is unprecedented in oh so many ways. When I see them side-by-side here there must be some professional diagnosis for those of us with these "tendencies". Ideas?
What feels not so smart is we have no car that seats four adults, or three! Nothing we can use to schlepp even the smallest of IKEA purchases or even a real suitcase. Stupid? Of course not, a dang good reason to keep car hunts alive in 2011.
Happy New Year all!
