I don't know if they are for real, but:
Gran Turismo Electric EV specs
WORLD’S MOST ADVANCED BATTERY SYSTEM
1. Ultra fast recharge capability: In the amount of time it takes to drink a cup of coffee
you can charge your vehicle. (Tesla Roadster, by comparison, takes 35 hours
to recharge on a home outlet.)
2. Approximately 4000 Watts of power (best performance in the industry).
3. Charge time of less than 10 minutes.
4. 27-30 year Battery Life! (Capable of more than 10,000 recharges.)
upto 30 year battery life I'm guessing availability is at least a few years away.
Does not look promising.
This looks like another Shelby Supercar Company "charge it in minutes from a 110V outlet" scam.
Looks nice though.
Following Google links about the owner/founder turns up some 'interesting' (for lack of a better word) stuff related to his legal practice:
Yeah, I saw that, too. Apples vs. Oranges. I wonder how long it would take to charge their battery "on a home outlet"?
I find everyone's lack of faith disturbing.
A fifteen minute recharge is easy
Of course, it does tend to give your coffee a rather odd metallic taste.
Their M model looks like the Dodge Zeo concept run through photoshop filters (flip horizontal, glowing edges & desaturate).
Their T model looks like a Land Rover LRX.
Their HD Pickup = GMC Denali XT Concept...
They have an ax to grind with TM: http://medicimotors.com/Truth_about_Tesla.html
"The batteries powering the Tesla are standard lithium ion batteries that you can purchase at your local RadioShack."
To Medici Motors, I simply say this: show me. Show me multiple working prototypes of your car. Show me that you've got the resources to design, engineer, and produce your car in some quantity.
Don't complain and whine about your competitors. That doesn't impress me at all.
Show me that you've got a better product. Show me that you've got a real product, and not just some words and renderings on a website.
Their 4 door sedan mock-up has a lot of similarity to the Inifniti Essence concept and Aston Martin "one".
Compare to the tail of this Aston Martin "One":
Their other photo of the "California Spider 612TT" also looks familiar to me, but I can't recall from where. Anyone recognize it?
Some sort of Italian Ferrari/Alfa/Bertone/Pininfarina concept I gather. I wonder how much photoshop work other than the extreme blur...
I'm just thrown that the web site is built in Yahoo Sitebuilder and hosted at Yahoo ($10 a month, such a deal). Okay for a florist shop, maybe. But a car company?
Best I could guess is some sort of blurred Frankenstein cross between an Alfa Romeo Tipo 33 and a Ferrari F430 Spider F1...
Are they for real?
Is this a new announcement? Without caring to dig into it, the website looks the same as it did in 2010.
"Making a difference."
Not so new it seems. I found it in the 2010 wayback archive of their site.
I guess Medici motors is this guy:
