True, but in a decade, I doubt most gas engines will be competition for electric. The price comes down, the technology gets better.I can't imagine spending $130k on a Tesla Plaid just to get gapped by a turbo LS motor or nitrous LS for so much cheaper.
Think about how many Ford flatheads probably got chucked in the scrap heap in the late 50s, early 60s, after overhead valve v8s became common.
Hell, look at the LS. No one builds a 350 small block anymore, you can get a junkyard 5.3 that's better than anything you can build for under 6k...
When electric motors start showing up in the junkyard, guys are going to notice. I really don't care how the driveshaft gets spun, armature or crankshaft...
