    I prefer that my daughter drive an Elio as opposed to the high performance Mustang she is presently driving. At the moment I don['t know how I will be able to pull that switch. Get a red Elio I suppose.

    IMHO , going with a 3 cylinder Ford engine is exponentially better than rolling the dice on an unproven "Elio" design .
    Seriously , Paul should have put this plan B into effect years ago .

    Does anyone know for sure that it is a Ford engine? If it is it would be a good choice . And if that is the case would that change the transmission choices. It may be more economical to have just one transmission for inventory and the line would be less complicated.

    Elio entered into a MOU with a "Fortune 500" company to supply engines. Ford and GM are the only 2 engine builders on the Fortune 500 list that made sense.

    ....just conjecture at this point, or possibly wishful thinking.

    I thought that was where I was, but I wasn't sure.
