I rediscovered Aptera, as Aptera Motor Corporation now, in August 2019, just by a curious internet search that day. I was bitten my Aptera in the 2005-2011 time period when I also had a ride in the 2e. So my interest is long and deep.
And even back then, living some 3000 miles away from Carlsbad, I knew I would have to be patient as even being able to make a reservation for an Aptera was not known????
????Luckily in Dec 2020 I was able to place a pre order reservation, with the original founders at control! I hold a low two digit reservation number. I now live much closer to the new company/new Carlsbad manufacturing location.
As Aptera has said…. It is a better time to make an Aptera.
What no one knew since then….was the ????pandemic and what that impact would be, add the supply challenges, which impact just about everything. “Life!”as they say! So I guess I need to try to stay healthy and safe in this crazy world ???? rewarding myself with an Aptera as things continue to advance… although never as fast as one would like.
I am not a young dude, so I face this reality with all my free time. Thinking back when I worked every day, traveled the world as part of that requirement…. This may have been easier to pass the days.
Hang in there! Beta should be interesting to follow, a least for me…getting me through understanding how all this unique Aptera technology will come together before it is mine!
I have never had the opportunity to “follow along” as my car came together. Handmade … at that!
