Há muuuuuuito tempo que queria, mas um veículo é um objeto de importância na gestão familiar. Preciso de algum tempo, não pode ser uma compra impulsiva.

Confesso que é algo muito tentador também para mim. Mas na prática não, não faz sentido!

Mas há tantas pessoas que coleccionam clássicos...

Quem o comprar pode pedir estatuto de carro clássico quando fizer 30 anos....

Remember that while it is perfectly acceptable to criticize the content of a post - criticizing the poster is not.
Mean spirited, nasty, snide, sarcastic, hateful, and rude individuals don't warrant or deserve my acknowledgement or respect.

Editor Graham Hope looks at the history of the venerable Toyota Prius, which was launched 20 years ago

What’s the most significant car to have been launched in the past 20 years? I’m sure we’d all have differing opinions, but there’s an undeniable case to be made for the Toyota Prius. Yes, incredible as it may seem, it’s now a full two decades since the wraps were pulled off the first production Prius at the 1997 Tokyo Motor Show.

A few months later we were behind the wheel for the first time, and came away suitably impressed. “Overall the Prius is a remarkable piece of engineering,” we gushed. “With its small-change running costs and minimal emissions, it could well be a glimpse of the future.”

(...)

How quaint those words look now, with the streets of our major cities full of Prius models, and Toyota so confident that it is entrenched in the public perception as the leader in this field that it markets itself as: “We Are Hybrid”.

Of course, it hasn’t all been plain sailing over the past 20 years. I remember well many complaints over the previous versions’ dumpy styling, now addressed on the ultra-bold current car, plus commentators who renamed it the “Pious”, a vehicle that would only be driven by eco-preaching do-gooders who bore no relation to average motorists. How wrong they were, eh?

(...)

As we accelerate at pace towards an electrified future, with new brands and tech arriving every month, I think it’s worth pausing and paying tribute to the Prius at this landmark in its evolution. In many ways you could argue that it really has laid the foundations for the current landscape. With around 6.4million sales to date, it’s convinced a lot of people about the merits of electric power.

And whether you agree with me or not now, there’s one thing I’m sure of; in 20 years’ time its reputation will have grown again as the pioneer of an eco revolution.

Um concept que não chegou a passar do salão de 2002...

E no momento de fazer 20 anos, eis que alguns comentadores fazem apostas sobre os avanços que a Toyota pretende dar, quanto a mim, totalmente infundados porque a eletrificação foi recentemente assumida pelos responsáveis do grupo.

Richter (analista da CLSA) says he can see several scenarios for Toyota over the next 20 years. “Toyota might be looking at an even more successful car,” the CLSA analyst said. “Or, it might become the automobile equivalent of Kodak.”
