One of the gems at the recent Tokyo motor show was a topless single-seater called the e-Racer. The rationale behind making it. Toyota boss, and keen race-car driver, Akio Toyoda’s keynote speech explained his view that everyone in the future could one day have their own sports car, if practical needs were met by shared mobility services. He added:
“The cars in everyone’s garages will all be sports cars, like this e-Racer. Well, that’s a little overstating it, but wanting to move about as one wishes, and wanting to go faster and farther are, I think, universal human desires.”
At least we agree with that.
