Wow, I must say that that is a very pretty car though.

Wouldn't be right without a healthy roar.

I can just picture that thing taking off of a line making no noise. It would be odd, and make me laugh very loud. As americans we are trained that more power equals more noice :D. heh.

a few years back, I think it was honda (maybe acura, but big deal) made the dual note concept that used the mid engine, rwd NSX set up but had two electric motors on the front wheels. I don't remember the numbers on it, but I think it was pretty comparable and I remember being pretty impressed at the time.

it's just too bad that if toyota ever did release a car like that, it would cost well out of any of our price ranges!

Wow, a hybrid that looks cool? I didn't know that was possible. It's a cross between a Lamborghini, 2006 Eclipse, and the back of a Mazda MX3 (but MUCH better). Very nice.

I'm kinda surprised that nobody has tried this with a CRX. The 88-91 AWD wagon trailing arms should bolt in, which would give you a drive line connection. Then you would just need to weld a mounting bracket to each arm for the motor and fabricate an adapter to go from the motor shaft to something shaped like the rear CV joint end. Pick up a motor controller or two with regenerative braking and pull the battery pack from a wrecked hybrid.
I've over-simplified a bit and it probably wouldn't be cheap, but it seems like the easiest route to an AWD 'rex I can think of.

I wonder if it would be possible to drop a CRX shell on an AWD frame? :shock: , turbo, and you've got yourself a GTR killa!
