    As the Thanksgiving holiday approaches, I realize I wanted to thank everyone who has contributed posts to this forum. I’ve learned a great deal. It’s been like a free university. I also welcome the opportunity to communicate with other intrepid souls like me who are patiently (some days!) waiting for Apterae to hit the streets. Waiting with kindred spirits is a bit more tolerable than waiting alone.

    A special thanks to Chris and Steve for taking the risk to create the company, have faith in the vision, and persist in the face of doubt, skepticism, and the snide negativity of armchair quarterbacks.

    Finally, appreciation to all the Aptera employees who are working to bring Aptera to market.

      Thanks Ray – I third your sentiments and wish the entire Aptera community a wonderful Thanksgiving. We all a much bigger family to be thankful for. We definitely need to form a true Owners Club so we can have chance to meet up once we’re on the road!

    I echo your words Ray! It took some adjustment but now I am patiently waiting for the first Aptera to be delivered! Then hopefully mine will not be too far behind. I love seeing how Aptera is growing into reality and the number of supporters is growing right along with it. I try to imagine what it will be like in the future when Aptera is delivering vehicles around the world and the company is making a large impact on the transportation industry and the environment. I thank Steve and Chris along with the team of employees that have the same vision as all the followers and investors! Thank you everyone who feels the same compassion for Aptera as I do!

    Definitely a big thanks to Chris, Steve and the whole Aptera team for all the work and dedication to the project. Being a former NASA aerospace guy I appreciate the monthly updates and the members of the team weighing in on their engineering projects. Makes me think of my younger days at NASA. Keep up the good work. I also plan to drive my Aptera from San Diego to Virginia but I think I am much earlier in the Queue since I discovered Aptera back in January. I plan a slow trip visiting National and State parks so could offer rides along the way to those further down the queue. .

    Once again a big thanks to Chris, Steve, and all the Aptera team for progress thus far.

    I can quibble and debate Aptera features and design choices with abandon, but when the dust settles, I have to consider myself lucky to have the wherewithal to purchase an Aptera and an Aptera team that is getting closer and closer to delivering the first examples.

    Happy Thanksgiving forum members, even folks outside the U.S. who may not celebrate this holiday!

    During Tesla’s early days, fans/owners of their cars were so enthusiastic, many volunteered to be brand ambassadors and showcase their cars to potential new customers. I myself will be doing the same thing when I get my Aptera (Sol/400mile/fully decked out solar option/vida interior/Reservation#22066) and I hope to see some of you guys do the same. ✌

    I give thanks for the great vision of Aptera and all of its innovators and supporters every day!

    I too hope to meet some other ambassadors, few and far between in Idaho. I originally hoped to drive across the country in July 2022 in my new Aptera to attend my daughter’s wedding in NH, but I don’t think my Aptera will be available. If it is, then stopping to chat with other owners along the way would be very fun.

    Thankful for everyone at Aptera and forum contributors. Here’s hoping we can be thankful this time next year for some deliveries.

    Yes, I will add my positive-ness to counter the negatives of those people on this forum who generally add a buzzkill to every single topic.

    I am in total agreement with the letter of thanks.

    I agree with all of the above and would like add my gratitude for Ray Holan and all who interact with intelligence and tact. For lack of a better word, there’s a “spirit” around the founders of this visionary vehicle that I find in the forum particpants as well. I’m grateful to be part of this community and for those who run it.

    As a recent member of the Aptera community, I would like to say how impressed I am with the vision and spirit of what Aptera stands for, as well as recognize all the hard work it takes to make something like this happen. It’s also great to associate with like-minded people on these forums!
