Do you really think that supercars as we know them today won't be around in the not too distant future?

Asked by justn (1382points) June 18th, 2009

Will the supercars of the future be ‘green’ or will they still be the powerful gas guzzlers that the are today?

I guess gas guzzlers in the typical sense of the term will not be there but smaller cars, which could be fuel efficient as well, are going to be the norm for a while given the state of the auto industry as well as the economic climate reflected in the buying power of people.

Green cars, solar powered, hydrogen powered etc., are probably going to be a bit farther off into the future. Hybrid cars are catching up but fueling stops are not so evenly sprawled even in the urban areas.

According to my estimate, even 50 years from now, I don’t think our fuel dependency on non-renewable energy sources will have shifted too much. But that’s my guess. Off the top of my head.

Look up the Tesla Roadster.

0–60 MPH: 3.9 seconds
MPG: n/a – pure electric propulsion
Emissions: 0

This is the future of the Supercar. But there will always be a Corvette.

@IchtheosaurusRex yes, I have seen the Tesla Roadster and it is quite awesome.

Depends on what you mean by “won’t be around”. They’ll still exist, but will be superseded, I expect.
