    OH, can you do one that has an exterior Vida/Black… where the bottom half matches the orange of the Vida interior? maybe with the door open so you can see the orange inside and outside??

    about aesthetic abstract appeal stuff, a non decorated approach by default with built in hooks too allow aftermarket textures and 3D structures to be added onto the clean slate.

    (see “opaue transparent” pic) i think it would be more appealing if the rear light was opaue silver/white/transparent to allow environmental light to reflect through it while daytime running light is more minimal, then when brake light goes it doesnt glare at drivers behind like some bright audi rear lights, i saw bmw matte rear lights that dont glare and they were more chill pink than angry red which i think would be more appealing.

    i guess you could have RGB light in the same housing too at least when parked (i dont know how legal that would be).

    some 3rd party ideas: the transparent layer with some graphic on it would make the graphic have a shadow that contrast light on the layer under the non transparent layer. maybe coolant stuff can flow through transparent channels with lights and all similar to gaming PC rigs?

    mercedes recently has light strip parallels light warmth to that of the environment, color representation and all that to make it distinct from the usual RGB lights,

    To me, the Aptera seems inspired in part by the Gen 1 Honda Insight, and I owned a 2000 Insight that was Citrus Yellow Metallic (yellow-green) (the unique first year only color). I think that would be a great choice.

    would thermal cooling improve with no wrap? what does aptera look like with no wrap? if i remember right, all advertised colors are wraps.

      This is the picture of sol befor it was wrapped with white. I beleive the thermal cooling would be negatively effected by the vehicle being all black more than having an additional vinyl laying that makes it white.

        I am still confused what the colour of the raw Carbon-Kevlar-Hemp body is. Is it really black like this picture suggests? And only the Sol and Luna versions are partly wrapped? And are pants /skirt made of the same material or plastic parts?

    old forum had post of about white paints that reflected solar heat much more normal paints. metallic looking mirror foil version may have similar effect, but sun glaring into other drivers eye may become a problem. much of the effect is due to materials difference not just color. https://www.washingtonpost.com/climate-solutions/2021/04/16/urban-heat-white-paint/

      BASF developed a black paint recently that will stay cool. They used it on the Hugo Boss/Alex Thomson 60-foot carbon fiber ocean racing sailboat that circumnavigates the world in 60-100 days. Traditional black paint will make it incredibly hot inside and burn your feet on the deck and they didn’t want poor Alex to burn his feet while he’s out there all alone racing for 2 months. Traditionally they always had to paint the tops of those boats white to stay cool.

        Because of Peters beautiful renderings I could not decide between a few colors so I ordered the 3M color swatch book. ( I hope that is the supplier they are using). What a mistake though, now instead of a couple I can’t decide between a dozen! They are so nice! I wonder exactly when in the manufacturing process the wraps are put on. If it is not the last thing done, and they would not be subjected to much damage after-words, then maybe ( after Deltas ) that is another thing that could happen while awaiting the arrival of chips. I can’t see any way for the wrap to be installed in a ten minute window if it is not done robotically. So maybe they would have three or four stations where this process would take place so they would get one off that part of the line every ten minutes or so. Any guesses as to the process?

          To add to decision difficulty, one might consider after-market wrap application vs Aptera factory. More than “just” 3M to choose from and could be a local shop for more control or even DIY for those so inclined.

    black car pic: 2 different lines of paint on the wraps, can pic either or have both with bottom one being more emphasizes just b/c its less apparent otherwise.

    bottom line can be same color as rear light, rear light can be opaque like lexus LC500 or smoked dark color like aston martin via removable tint layer, and layer could have a sparkling-light-on-water/glitter effect that is similar to the pinstripe line that flows through whole car, maybe the layer can direct light from corner side to the rear so the rear glows in environmental light until the night and brake lights come on. layer could also blend in with rest of car so the light cut out is not quickly recognizable until light comes on.

    the old vs new aptera pic: maybe make front bumper color not different from the rest of the bottom like old aptera b/c its kinda hard to ignore the way it intersects with the hood line that can flow through the whole car. it would look more like a boat or plane that way. rest of car doesnt have much quickly apparent intersection, so this mod would make the non intersection theme more consistent.

    o yeah and that green car is lexus “nori green,” i like their “atomic silver” for the pinstripe color over this nori, or mazda “mica pearl white”, mclaren”silican yellow” maybe stripe should be satin or gloss or mirror like

    theres also mclaren “nardo orange”

    Funny, the LC500 is one of the cars I was previously considering besides the Aptera, it sure is nice, both inside and out. Was between that, Cybertruck, and Mach E. Actually the new Corvette C8 is sort of better than the LC500. Aptera I’m still so interested to see what all the custom interior options are, but exterior as well I suppose.

    the chrome trim on window top should gradually become thicker as its going toward the rear, to make it look more weighted and massive toward rear (opposie of how much actual vertical mass car has as reflected light is moving along the car as observer or car moves.) weighted look gives it a more dramatic appearance of motion vs if it were same thickness. in car with no cover over wheel, 3 spoke wheels that bend, so its very apprently seems like spoke mass is tilted, when rotating movement is more apparent. maybe with the current factory offroad option, a opaue transparent plastic that wont melt that replicates shape of the factory wheel cover extension can allow wheels motion to be more visible. opaue areo shell on chassis is nice to make shape of shell apprent but also the inner workings under it, which is more relevent for chassis not like this aptera but its a concept to keep in archive in case it becomes reasonable to do it as materials change, like graphene supposedly allowing some transparency while being very tough material.

    What happens if we buy a standard Sol, then wrap the wheel skirt and bottom of the nose in white?
    Also, aftermarket plain white wrap right over the rooftop solar looks a lot like the 2009 version but a little more modern?
    I think both look amazing but not sure if it’s better than the stock Sol.

    -on the first page here, theres my post with the pics of other cars, i was thinking applying “hypershift and musou” (the video) except somehow making the space stars concentrate more gradually toward the rear end, of course same idea toward front end except its less gradual b/c teh change from less to more vertical mass happens quicker. maybe, you dont even apply teh idea to the front, just to make it look like the big bang idea, where star material spreads into a dark space from a explosive bright rear end, and like how the car is moving foward, the universe moves foward expanding (this is basic old highschool big bang theory, i wouldn’t be surprised if its changed). then call it universe” lol. they tried to add pearlesence but failed, so thats something.

    same idea can be applied to thickness of a line of paint or something, shiny fish scales, etc

        if you press ” command ” and F or “cntrl” and F you can search for “bloody”, which is part of my name, in this discussion thread. youll see my ideas. when you scroll down to bottom of page, theres this thing for page 1, page 2 etc. theres also this front lisence plate solution: https://aptera.us/community/discussion/bumpers/#post-4833 and the OLED/ Eink surface concept (phone app controlled graphics on/in car). for interioir: no dashboard just chassis bar that also holds accessories like phone app replacing built in screen with voice control microphone https://aptera.us/community/discussion/cupholders/#post-6478 (my first post). basic inetioir allows optional texture graphic cards to be screwed in, but by default it glorifies tech ex. AC heat venting is not covered by dashboard etc, b/c sense of purposefulness is timeless vs some non-memoriable chunk of plastic.screw in texture graphic cards allows market for buying new texture commissions or screwing/string tying in artwork to teh modular piece with holes in it etc this is money maker for personalization market, people even burn ink into their skins for it (tatoo market), spend hours social media appearances and ego comparisons with others, fancy clothes, bag, jewelery makeup(that face painting stuff females are into) industry, home decoration (including furniture, gardening etc) industry, etc. social media increases demand by finding new ideas and flexing for ego worship reasons, etc, celebrity and cross brand name advertising

        art applications: landscapes https://www.motor1.<wbr>com/news/451400/bespoke-rolls-<wbr>royce-wraith-uae/ like video game maps like battle royale Halo ring map (all of earths different biomes and their iconic parts in a ring that wraps the interior like a ring from dashboard to door parts to a band surrounding rear passengers, especially effective in the rear row facing cars rear concept from above, combine with 3D illusion via transparent screen planels making a box like structure, and it can also act as computer displays that people connect their device with to use as extra and maybe bigger display for multitasking(video game and discord, etc), programmer etc, and similar thing can be added to almost panoramic roof window for variable displaying and maybe even tinting with e ink chemistry (similar to already existing mclaren electrochromatic roof window) , smaller maps like that of somones favorite neighborhood, minecraft map (vibes of RTX graphics on VR minecraft ), star wars planet landscape, preserved butterfly, insects, deer cow skull, bird skeleton etc. somone jewelry can be held in display, ie wrist watch instead of built in analogue clock like in some lexus etc. a CEO, inventor, scientist might have a iconic model of a product/ concept of his etc, family bloodline icons (toyota name, koenigsegg shield, koenigsegg ghost (was in honor of the military facility they built in), i think gordon murray t.50 logo was like this dont rerember,), sports teams icons, political icons etc. there is a solar plant based plastic that redirects some of its light to edges of the panel, where small solar panels harness energy, while panels act like a window tint layer.

        The displays and textures should be on modular pieces than can be screwed/clipped on and off the chassis,

        interioir color scheme: eveything is not bright color and not bright notably very fast or too slow moving graphic on screen and dash, to make it no distracting from driving environment. similar functions are colored in same color ex. AC heat vent in a different color (preferably brighter more noticeable color than background color but still not overly bright), than rest of interioir, optional hard switch dials have their big graphic and colors like orange for heat and light blue for AC etc.

        you could also visulaize other concepts that will probably have to wait after production of cars,maybe in next gen car, such as the two levers replacing steering wheel, manual window raise/lower with up down slider, (https://aptera.us/community/discussion/cupholders/#post-6478 my second post). there was also the idea of using fan driven by wheel or seperate motor to manipulate airflow to replicate teh long tail and round shape that makes aptera so wide and long, thus making aptera smaller (similar to gordon murray t.50 fan, he explains it in gordon murray youtube). theres also the tandem seater with passenger facing rear of car for areo, center weight distrubution, less cabin airspace so AC heater more is less energy, utilization of unused trunk space as semi extra leg space, narrower car also means more movement space (for sportiness) per inch of road width, (similar to Czinger 21c). consider also apply this to 4 door aptera and the comcercial modular truck/van tower aptera, semi truck (see skateboard autotonoumous semitruck concept, ex. hyundai, daimler etc), a RV living trailer. healight at top of windshield so one an drive home at dark after frontal crash b/c drivetrain isnt at front so much, plus less sturctural spacing for headlight integration in cuurent location means more efficient crash strong chassis, plus for same reason offroaders have roof lights, plus it gives unique look. lights turn with steering wheel like 2021 toyota corrolla hatch (light shows upcoming path your about to turn into so you can see whats coming around ie deer before you speed in that direction, useful for maintaining car energy momentum for hypermiling and time attack racing in dark environments ie not in the noisy lighted smelly city, which is where special driving times will be besides highway trips etc. some roads are long and not lighted not sure how common it is but ive seen in texas a lot). light it should be visible from inside with wires flowing to them etc with:

        semitransparent cover over technical parts to allow seeing it, semi transparence also allows light to show teh shape of teh cover in its color, with technique similar to how privacy computer screen filter plastic by the company called 3M does it. this can be replace normal cars areo shell too, and theres potential of transparent graphene which recently became applied to large construction materials. it can be applied to wheel covers of cuurent aptera assuming the cover doesnt have to be stiff like cabin material which it prolly doesnt have to, and with that comes wheels which are curved and odd number of apprent spokes (spokes made apprent with color such as silver while rest of spokes are dark colored to be unnoticed unless observer tries to pay attention to it) to give wheel a appearance of being weighted to foward or rear ward, giving a sense of motion even when sitting still compared to even number of apparent spokes as even spokes minimizes weighted appearance with more equal number of apparent spokes on both sides of a wheel from edge to edge of wheel circle. curving the appearance also adds to sense of motion. wheel movement across different speeds is appreciated more when there are minimal number of apparent spokes (at least one). i guess 3 actual spokes is enough, it was at least for koeniggsegg regera but that was hollow structure carbon fiber wheel.

      At city speeds you wouldn’t lose much range – maybe 10%. ~50+ mph is when the degraded aerodynamics really hits but probably closer to 20%. This would still probably be ~0.02 drag since its mainly the more exposed wheels. Definitely looks awesome.

        wheel covers or at least the upper half of them should be fairly easy to take off/add on via structural harness and a locker controlled by door locker key or some screw driver bolts with shape that cant be screwed on/off without a special screw driver tip. small stuff but makes the difference from covers being stolen.

        old forum also had concept of covers that fold into the would be upper part of the wheel cover with sliding mechanism that could be string and pulley pulled up/down via dial, and locked in place with locker in place switch in cabin similar to door sliding lock, and can be similar to mud flaps with rubber so that it can take impact without being cracked easily b/c of too stiff structure.

      Peter, love it! I especially love that there is no thick bar right at eye height blocking the side views like in the current design. I would be very happy with even just the “bubble” (single piece clear window) being across the existing upper split-sections window area. I suspect that making it a full bubble door such as in the picture may likely weaken the overall structure and need some beefing up elsewhere, unfortunately. Nonetheless, when there is a will there is a way and it is a really cool concept. Thanks!

      door might be integral to crash strength for at least side impacts, in old forum i suggested a thin whip/rod or a tinted transparent wing fin at least for the wheel module further away from driver, so he can visualize dimensions of his car just as a normal car (no learning curve). this will also rid the possibility that “suv”,truck drivers wont not see wheels over high long hoods, thinking the ends of teh car are basically at the cabin sides like normal car, when they are actually extending outward. turn signal lighting can be projected onto the tinted transparent wing fin/rod/whip, with light reflector foil inside. this would also replace in cabin turn signal indicators, freeing up screen space, minimizing graphic distraction from screen, and putting turn signal indicator closer to line of sight of the driving environment rather , which is good for driver awareness(safety) and sense of interaction with the environment (sportiness). aesthetically, it would be a even better version Porsche front shoulders in wheel placement marking.

    theres a line that splits bottom and top of aptera especially visible at the side and front, that surrounds the whole car until reaching the rear. the top part is where most aesthetics will be most apprent, b/c most people nearby wont notice the bottom part unless they are far away. the larger surface area is where i would put a bigger graphic, smaller area smaller one, etc to have some harmony between area shape and graphic. would also make change in shape of car apparent going from front to rear, etc.

    the graphic can be continuously covering the whole car as shiny fish scales, feathers(peacock), snake skin, shiny gold honeycomb(with flower insect tropical bird stuff), pineapple/dragon fruit surface, etc with feather/skin/comb tiles changing in thickness per surface area. maybe add snake head eyes and fangs and all that fur gonna do the snake skin, etc

    see “lines” in my posts in this thread. a pinstripe can be drawn on these lines as a flower stem with small flowers, it could be highly light reflective, sparkling line with a sideview of a bird/insect (dragonfly, honeybee etc) written signature in between, etc. this version surrounds the light up logo as part of a leaf, which is part of couple stems of a flower going down the line that divides top and bottom of aptera (green stems, red shows rough idea of flower placement. flower can be same diameter of tire in a apparent way, suspension arms can be colored green to continue teh stem, the inside of wheel cover is colored the under side of a flower. with feathers everywhere, itll seem like wings, with birds head at front end of cabin).

      and something closer to the glassy sea water gradient of color concept: glass (or ceramic) transparent layer on top like transparent water (like when you see it at shore or in your hands when u pick it up), which is visible at the ends of surfaces and corners of car. color transitions from dark blue to teal to light blue, maybe with waves graphics and its active white water and sparkles under sun like actual seawater on a clear sunny say). transition can happen by environmental light levels like it seems on actual seawater, or a linear change from front to end of car.

      Yes, but the wrap will not materially impede the cooling function even in hot climates. Aptera will do engineering and validation testing so the car functions in ambient temperatures from -20 to 125F

      More reason to get sol. That negates fading being a problem (although cracking and peeling could still suck)

      Wraps typically last 5-7 years and the life can be extended by minimizing exposure to the sun… ya that ain’t gonna happen with most Apteras. So say it lasts 5 years then you need to pay to get it rewrapped. I could be wrong but I think the roof isn’t wrap and given the overall size this makes the surface area far less than a normal vehicle ($1000 is typical cost to wrap a car). If it costs ~$800 to wrap it every 5 years thats an average of $13 / month and gives an opportunity to change up the style every so often. Obviously more expensive for complex patterns or metalic wraps etc.

    I like the wrap designs. I might have to dust off my photoshop program, I’d like to see Erich Hartmanns black tulip design from his ME109 🙂

        cross closer to the yellow, arrow a bit futhur away from cross. and the heart around the location of driver. i understand why someone may not want that on their car lol (association with nazi symbols) but i would rather have it on b/c on those ancient civilization stuff and to be closer to the original graphics. id also cover the light bar at front and body color the front end. not sure if this body color is the same as original but still similar and a nice color.

    That’s fantastic. Do you design vehicle wraps ?

    I worked for a printing company for 34 years we had a graphic designer who did custom vehicle wraps.

    When my sailboat comes out of the water this winter. It’s getting wrapped in a custom printed marine vinyl ( Corsair F28 ). I will now have a 3 wheeled car to match my 3 hulled sailboat 🙂

    My take. I think the Aptera looks best just in just one color, but as the roof has to be black I could think of a glossy Racing Green to accompany it or a Noir version with highly visible pods.

      nori green pearl, lotus green. i like this green but i wish it had pearl and more apparent (a little more larger glitter particle that can be seen from far at least as a pinstripe line, maybe as atomic silver or gold rather than bodycolor) glitter and the darker green was lke nori green, so the transition to sunlight yellowish is more apparent (i guess its b/c of sunlight, so reflective of environmental light) : https://drivetribe.com/p/this-super-rare-british-racing-AqFIXuTwSeyU1-CaK2bHHA?iid=Ch4BZX60RGKQLBqw8dW3FA . vantage and mclaren highlighter green (especially as a matte color), pearl dark emerald (not so subtle that it looks almost black from afar under dim light nori green pearl has that problem too, except it looks greyish)

    I’m getting excited to see some winter content from Aptera!
