I have to make some decisions for 2013, so what better place to look at cars than California?
I’d be interested in the forthcoming McLaren convertible, which has a hard, retractable top. The car is 1.5 tons (TONS) lighter than my current Bentley Supersports, and has only 5 less horsepower (616 vs 621). It’s 0-60 in 3.0 seconds, and 0-120 in 8.0 seconds, which ought to get me down the block.
The Fisker is a gorgeous car, four door, plenty of room in the rear seats. The gas apparently just fires the electric motor up, so you can get 100 miles to a gallon! It has a huge range (“We don’t have ‘range anxiety’, ” said the salesman).
Tomorrow I’m looking at a Rolls and maybe an Aston Martin Vanquish.
