    I'd like to take that AMP out for a spin.

    I hope they were just babying the prototype in that AMP EV video.

    With Electric motor torque those front wheels should be able to stay in the air until the rear wheels crest that tiny hill.

    Same 0-60 as an S (why? it's so much smaller) and less practical... not sure it'll fly.

    Well if it were capable of FLYING, that would be exciting.

    By the way it looks I'd expect it to. pretty ugly.

    for $65K I think many people around here would be able to beat an S with something that small (um, speed wise). You can see straight through (between the seats in the picture above) and see the ground

    Well that pretty much answers any ideas of fording water with an EV. People will not consider if they get wet backs.
