    Project Thunderball bringing Sexy Back to Cars EV Style

      Where artistic brilliance meets cutting-edge German technology, this is the Wiesmann Project Thunderball luxury roadster!

    Coupe or Convertible, your choice in what could easily be a 21st century Bond car.


    April 2022 Wiesmann revealed a Thunderball Concept EV to considerable excitement. This car features a classic two-seat, rear-wheel drive layout and lightweight carbon fibre construction, delivering performance, responsiveness, and engagement that enthusiasts demand. Wiesmann at the start of this year opened the books and as of this past Superbowl weekend, the first year production of the Wiesmann "Project Thunderball" is sold out. This is a big accomplishment for a sports sedan with a $320,000 dollar starting price. 

    To quote Owner and CEO of Wiesmann, Roheen Berry:  “We are all extremely proud that Project Thunderball – the car which heralds the return of the storied Wiesmann brand – should resonate so strongly with driving enthusiasts from around the world. We knew that combining the timeless design, luxury, and hand-crafted finish that Wiesmann is renowned for, together with a state-of-the-art electric powertrain that delivers exceptional performance, range and charging and our own technology, including the innovative regenerative braking system, would result in a truly captivating and iconic car. To have already sold out the first year of production proves the unique appeal of Project Thunderball and represents a phenomenal start to a Wiesmann’s new, electrified era.” 


    Project Thunderball has the initial details with more to come as they get closer to the 2024 delivery date.

    I got a mixed bag of emotions regarding this one.


    The song and group are fitting for this...because the Stones are British and the styling of this EV sure seems to be of the British roadster type.  I love the Stones and I love this EV.   However...I dont like the front end styling of it.  Dont like the grille and there is something about the headlights that I dont like. I cant put my finger on itIs it the black enclosure?  Is it the plain jane circles?  Is the oval enclosure awkward?   I do LOVE the fenders and the way they bulge and the hood scultpured the way it is.  Only If the grille was a different shape.  

    I dont like the backlights. I dont like the fact that they are protruding circles, but I do like their placement and the angle of them in the back.  Im not entirely enamoured by the styling of the back end, but its not too bad either.  

    I LOVE the silhouette and I LOVE the interior.  Those gauges are awesome.  Very elegant.   I love the supposed statistics but I dont really like the price tag. 

    Definetely roadster for me!!!

    @oldshurst442 When I first saw this, I thought it was an Alfa Romeo like this.


    But with unfinished headlights as I just do not see the purpose in the wind drag those headlights will cause.

    While there is lots to like about it, the front end needs work IMHO.

    I love that it is a Roadster / Coupe EV car that delivers on the look and based on the press release feel of traditional ICE driving but without the ICE.

    I too was surprised by the price but seems there are plenty of fools and their money soon parted. That has been proven by the German and Italian brands with their limited release autos.

    • Watched the MH 370 documentary a few nights ago.  Very interesting story, still so much unknown about the why and what happened....
    • (Resharpens knife for next bubble popping)   And "YES" to the rest of your post. I am just tired of the fanboy logic being thrown out there without even a lick of simple research and data to back up said "logic".    For crying out loud, go ahead and price a Chevrolet SS right now. They sold for $50K new and I routinely see those sell for that price with more than 30K miles on them. Lower mile examples go for even more. His logic is easily flushed down the toilet with a simple google search.   Even the Camaro ZL1 has staying power and 20 years from now, it will continue to go higher with the Camaro ceasing production and being a low production trim itself.  
    • This is good stuff, I am glad Ford is expanding and helping the push to eV, the faster we go all EV and EV costs come down the better.  Also it is good they are investing the education side, because this country as a whole needs more people in Manufacturing, auto repair, auto body repair and trades in general.  We kind of got away from making things here and a lot of the people doing trade jobs are older, once they retire we are screwed if there aren't young people doing it too. 2 million EV's by 2026, Tesla is already there.  GM and Ford will probably have a good battle for #2 EV maker, what I don't see from Ford is the volume vehicles outside of F150, which the Lightning as it now is far outsold by the ICE version.  Mach-E isn't a volume product, Ford needs the $30k Escape EV that can sell huge numbers.  Lincoln is a dead brand, you aren't getting volume there.  Ford could do well with pickups and vans for the commercial market.
