I think someone missed out on 'Reverse Engineering'-class. Normally with reverse engineering you start to figure out how stuff works and often take things apart. Basically how any budding engineer starts off in a career. It is not the intention to reverse the progress on a good design and something old as new. So why does Bob Lutz want to turn cars like the Fisker Karma and the Tesla Model S in a gas guzzling muscle car? That is one step forward, two steps back!
