I know it's just a model, but there seems no attempt at all to make it look 'cool' or 'futuristic'. It looks like an old can-am car with a bubble for the driver and drawn on head-lights ala Gen-1 Daytona Prototypes

I like that. That's the problem with electric cars. They feel the need to make them look weird and odd and futuristic. That's a good reason why electric cars struggled to gain traction in the real world - the cars look funky in photoshops, but look utterly stupid driving around the streets of Manchester or Edinburgh. That's why Teslas do sell - it's a road car, that just happens to be electric powered.

This Panoz looks very purposeful. They could make it look like a hot wheels toy like Formula E, but there's no need. This car is to get a job done. I like that. Hopefully it will get it done...Panoz never fills me with confidence.

How to make things slippery has been known for many many decades. That's what is needed here. Making things look futuristic may not help. Function is more important.

Besides it also looks very early days. So it will be polished.

It is almost like it on purpose has this 60s concept car look. That ugly green color and the shape of the headlights.

The ugly green color that happens to be a common color, or pretty close, to most other EV concepts? Hmmm, green and an electric green color for an electric green vehicle. Yup, that's a hard connection.

Lime green or something like that. Look at the real life photos, this is much darker.

Well, it's a Panoz, so it's weird.

P38 in workshop has a lot of promise if they can keep it on the circuit!
I admire any effort to advance the way that cars race.I do have reservations about this concept as using a pallet truck to remove and replace a battery pack is little more than a way to overcome the inherent shortcomings of present day technology.Do we know where the design was developed?

Isn't that what you're meant to do though? Overcome the shortcomings? We did it with petrol by building a world wide petrol network. When it comes to batteries we already have a world wide electricity network - we just need a way of getting it into the car quicker.

And it isn't like we haven't seen quick change fuel tanks before

Yeah, try stuff. Mostly it doesn't really help and you move on. Occasionally it works and you open a door.

I think from head on it looks like a roof-less DP with a pod graphed to the top of it.

I'm kinda sad that they just don't build a modern day version of the Panoz GTR-1 with that Ford Ecoboost engine that can run in GTLM.
