    John:

    Your reply suggests a static, fixed UI with fewer display options than GM offered in my Spark EV. and flies in the face of the stated embrace of right to repair.

    You may discount it but right to repair is a marketing position that acknowledges going forward that cars are ‘computers’ on wheels.

    Think marketing and draw the analogy of Aptera as computer hardware and the OS as DOS and where right to repair takes us is down the PC route vs. the proprietary Apple approach. Besides, the idea of proprietary when you’re using a Linux open-source OS at the base, is to me counter-intuitive.

    Said differently, you want an Apple; buy a Tesla, a Lyric or ID4. They will all restrict you to their narrow vision that they can provide EVERYTHING the world needs (utter BS.)

    What the world needs is an open platform that will give owners the opportunity to ‘improve’ the breed ’cause all that is coming down the pike these days are proprietary data suckers designed to provide auto companies with a tool for invading your privacy with impunity … for fun and profit.
