Response to Hybrids are not as crazy as you might think...

... PRICE. If this were to be a budget sports car to make it a Hybrid would knock the price even further out of whack. Just my thought. If it were me buying, as much as I like hybrids, I would not care for this car to be one, I would want a straight forward, simple as possible (for me to work on) good old fashioned internal combustion engine. One of Fiat's most powerful 4 cylinders would be perfect imho.

Now, if they wanted to offer a hybrid version as an OPTION, hey that's another story, but as the primary offering? No. If I wanted a hybrid, I would be going for one of those Hondas you mentioned...

Peace, -Mac
