Why did I immediately think of a hybrid rotary, and why does that sound so dirty?...

About time, the world is making a big shift towards electrics, I think it is going to happen far sooner than any of us think.

We are in the golden age of the gasoline engine. Electrics will rule within 25yrs. Just my humble prediction.

2004 Mazda 6s 3.0 5dr. never ending money vacuum project:
CP-E headers w/catted mid + Magnaflow carback/AEM CAI/3.7L TB/Speed6 springs/RX-8 wheels
AWR 70D Enginemount/CP-E Dogbone/Custom urethane stock trans mount
Ralco shortshifter/Bose w/Auxmod/sharkfin antenna/lots of little things...

25 years is faster than any of us think? :-) For what it's worth, Mazda thinks there's a future for internal combustion engines for 30+ more years.

I always get concerned about the classic machines when this topic comes up. I agree the future is electric, but I have zero interest in converting my 55 MG TF to electric. Part of the fun is the noise, smell and ancient driving experience of the gearbox. I hope they develop a dino alternative fuel so I can continue to enjoy that machine.

Electric will take off once the technology is better (it's still in its infancy much like solar) and it no longer needs to be government subsidized.

Internal combustions will continue strong for quite some time, especially if Mazda keeps up with their breakthrough research.
