    TRANSMISSION (oh, yeah, baby!)

    Right?

    So for those who missed it, we only discussed transmissions for, oh, maybe 5 years? There was good. There was bad. There was ugly.

    However.

    One of the common conclusions seems to have been that maybe a 2-speed transmission would be the ticket. I think Ed liked that idea, and I certainly liked the theory, even if putting it into practice was a little tough.

    WELL now. It seems Porsche likes the idea too: https://www.greencarreports.com/news...0eANy8KZxr0rUo Maybe I'm delusional or idealistic in thinking Porsche knows what they're doing, or could do the modeling better than most, or would do this for strictly performance reasons and not marketing, but whatever...

    Go ahead Ed. If you can't say "I told you so!" with this one, when can you?
