  15. 15. Hybrid Progress • It is exciting to see the growth of hybrids, electric, and alternative powered vehicles over the last few IAA shows in Frankfurt. • It still takes too long to charge up elecrtic vehicles, with other challenges as well, but progress is being made as is noticible by all the different vehicles that are available as production models and concepts on the drawing board.
  16. 16. Popouri • Here is a popouri of vehicles that I didn‘t hit yet • This tank from Mansonary is "born for revolution“ • A new Bugatti in black • The new Porsche 918 Spyder • The new Porsche 911 • The Fiat 500 now has a family version
