Exactly. Lease if you want an EV now. Battery tech will improve. I bet the landscape looks quite a bit different once the lease is up.

I zip up through there and practice 3 - 2 rev matching and hang a few corners. After that a little bit of spirited freeway on-off ramp acceleration testing but nothing that'll get me thrown in the hoosegow. If I had a "faster" EV would I even have the desire for such activity? Probably not.

And I ask, if you had an automatic would you have the desire for such activity?

Yes. Especially if it was a Gen 5 ZL1 A6. I would just adjust the route a bit for more straight-line romps and probably toss in a few short burnouts! Autos can be a LOT of fun if driven "correctly". Hold that A6 in 2nd and hang a few turns, good times. While I understand your preference for a manual trans you need to keep in mind that today's automatics aren't yesterday's Powerglides. And don't forget, I've got a Turbo 400 in my Olds and it's 2 tons o' fun!

^^^ this!! I have tons of fun in my A6 cammed and stalled Camaro. I drive her around town all the time in manual mode. My tuner has the tranny set to "manual auto lock", so that anytime I put it in manual, the converter is locked in whatever gear I am in. I drive it like it is an indycar, it is sooo much fun. And like ariZona28 says, find a good route with some straight line romps, a few 2nd gear burnouts and some sprited on/off ramp shots and it's a joy without using the clutch. I have had my manual cars in the day, but this A6 is really fun!! When someone wants to try me, I leave it on sport mode and let the 4500 stall do it's thing and leave them in the dust, without pushing in the clutch and grabbing a lower gear via the shifter, oh so quick!!! lol.

I hate saying this, but the c5 Camaro was the last automobile that I had any measurable desire for. I have a sad feeling that this will remain for a long while. I do like the GM pickups and one of them will likely be my next object of desire.

This is why I try to bring caution to GM, Ford and who ever wants to listen: The enthusiast automotive genre is dying. The hoards of customers that they once profited from will not return. These customers will likely go all japanese.

Same here and well written! Except I’ll be purchasing a Rivian.

Not to mention (but to mention) racing. Take a look at Formula E. If that's what we have in store, racing is dead too.

Wow. Sad. What's left?? Scale model racing? RCs? Fighter Jets?? Maybe Monster Trucks.....
