    But as it has been stated, Elio is doing everything in it's power to go into production in 2019
    No matter what anyone else says, that's the plan, and they are working on sticking to it.

    So what exactly IS going on?
    Is there actually engineering going on or are we just waiting on money?

    The word from EM is that they can't talk about anything that is going on, period.
    There are some things in the works, that they just can't, under any circumstances, discuss it with anyone, period, end of story.
    And that's all that can be said, sorry.

    Check your email. They sent actual news. Vague, but hopeful.

    As they do every year, I won't be surprised when they do that again this year.
    :p

    But of course, should they actually come to market in 2019, I will immediately buy one. The benefit is I'll have 66,000 pre-orders ahead of me so that should give them plenty of time to work out any kinks by the time they're ready to make mine. :usa:

    I hear you. :eek: I once bought a used car when my trusty VW Rabbit finally bit the dust. Turns out the year my car came out was the year the engineers made 3 different engine mods, so you couldn't just tell the auto store place, "I need a macerated thingadingy for a 198? MajorBrand." You needed to know where in the update cycle the car was made.

    And remember: NEVER buy a version 1.0 Microsoft product.

    Exactly why I am looking forward to the second year Elio :D Hopefully they offer turbos the second year, but I will settle for a naturally aspirated if they do not look to be on the roadmap once production gets rolling. But no way do I want the first year of a new model of a new car company with a new motor.

    But I applaud those of you that do!

    Someone has to work out the bugs, why not me?
    I'm qualified on cars and bikes, the Elio should be a breeze.
    And I can start with modifications.
