    It has been available since June of last year.

    Depending on how attached you are to your 21 year old car, maybe an EV conversion would be worth considering?  I'm thinking about doing that with an old NA Miata as long as I can keep the balance (handling) the same that Mazda made it.  That might not be too difficult with some of the newer batteries, though.  Removing the gas tank will also allow room to experiment with weight distribution.

      It's a turbo that runs really smooth and has nearly 200 horses. Fossil fuel cars have got to go but there are things you don't tinker with. I'll probably end up selling it to some kid looking to do some mods and race his buddies.
