Does sports car rhymes with electric car? Yes, apparently. The zero-emission power supply is increasingly combined with the concept of high performance. This is demonstrated by models already on the market such as the Porsche Taycan or the Tesla Model S (recently available in an exaggerated 1,020 HP Plaid variant). And this is confirmed by the many shooting hypercars arriving in the coming years.
A few names? Rimac Nevera, for example, or Extreme Lightning, lengthening the time horizon a little. But the future is electric for many: McLaren (only battery-powered cars from 2030), Lamborghini, Ferrari and company cannot fail to offer at least part of the zero-emission range. Bugatti will probably do it too (she too seems to be by 2030), the symbol par excellence of high octane thrills with its Chiron Super Sport powered by the monstrous 1,600 HP W16.
But are battery-powered hypercars credible? Are they the natural evolution of the high performance car concept or do they represent the only possible compromise to save the category from extinction?
The subject is debatable, we are sure, but it must also make us reflect. Because on the one hand we cannot deny the charm of the roar and the sensations that an internal combustion engine gives; on the other hand, one cannot even be so short-sighted as not to see that the electric offers opportunities hitherto denied to petrol cars in terms of acceleration and pure performance. An example above all: the future Tesla Roadster, with compressed air rockets derived from aerospace technologies developed by SpaceX. According to Elon Musk will be able to fly, but only a little.
