>> Same old choice, boxers or briefs, paper or plastic, diesel, unleaded or what the hell is that? Oh, natural gas! In a Porsche, kind of, come on! That's the Cevennes from a company called PGO, a small boutique Swiss manufacturer. As you can tell, it's a Boxster Porsche clone sort of but the key is it runs on natural gas and inline-6 engines but again natural gas. Now, the difficulty here is how do you fill this thing up but once you do, you're gonna get about 32 miles per galloon if you kind of back the mouth out roughly equivalent, 300 mile range, good performance 350 horsepowers is not bad. It's a very lightweight car, very clean burning as natural gas, of course, is often used on city buses in various cities and congested downtown areas. Is it the vision of the future? Not necessarily, although in Europe, there are quite a few opportunities to fill one of these up. In America, you might need to make friends with a bus driving to keep driving this. They're taking orders, 70,000 dollars. ^M00:01:06 [ Music ]
