We are now featured in Gizmag. A web and print based magazine.
It also mentions that G2, an evolution of G1, is currently under development with
the idea of reducing weight and increasing accessibility for servicing.
It may also address the many requests to be able to supply the car
in kit form.
For all those who have requested, or suggested, that we make plans available.
Please let us outline where we are. As we have replied to most people who have
asked, we are not looking at this as a possibility for good reasons.
If we were to supply plans to build the cars as they are, we would need to
supply huge amounts of data along with the plans. Furthermore, the cost of
building an exact replica - unless you happen to own a large CNC mill - would
be very large. The financial return from making plans available honestly isn't worth
the time it would take to produce them or answer all the questions that would
arise from them. To make G1 available as a production vehicle or kit we need to get
down to a realistic production cost and we need to massively reduce our
manufacturing costs. And that is where we are at with providing plans.
In the March 15th 2006 edition of Autocar - English publication - we
have a 4 page write up on the G1. It gives a fairly independent opinion
of the G1 and has some previously unseen images.
The article was written in 2005 and has taken a while to get to press.
But it's a great article that will soon be available on the press page.
A site-wide update has been rolled out. We've implemented some new features
and updated content. This rollout is currently incomplete, but we felt comfortable
with what we had and thought it was time to "go live". We will be completing
the updates within the next few days.
