Because quick swap batteries would have lower capacity as less of the battery mass can be dedicated to holding power.

The amount of time required of Le Mans pitstops these days could easily make swappable battery stacks viable.

And to be frank, that's the only way to make long-distance electrical cars viable.

Their joke is becoming so old.

Remember that the original plan was to have self-built LMP2 ready already by 2015, followed by self-built LMP1 in construction by 2016 and race ready by 2018. With both F1 and FE in horizon as well

The only thing that ever did materialize was the yacht for David , which is the reason he disappeared from the face of the earth soon after. Well except for couple of appearances here and there when he's been asking for additional treasuries, to fund the ever rising upkeep costs of the said yacht.

That was more a rhetorical question. Batteries can hold enough power/charge to do some good amount of laps with lmp pace but they won't go as far and recharging is out of the question to keep up with a refuel time. In order to recharge those batteries they'd probably be in the pits for quite a bit more time than regular refueling.

I agree. World needs dreamers. But how can these dreams pay their daily bills? That is my question.
