Let's see the stories from the devoted followers of Aptera: I first spotted Aptera back in 2008, was looking for something different in a hybrid, and it caught my eye. Plunked down my $500 deposit and had a mid 1000 reservation. I rode it out to beyond the end, and they finally ended up sending my money back. Not a month went by since then, that I didn't scour the interwebs for some glimpse of hope that it would rise from the ashes, and fly as it was meant to. (Metaphorically speaking.) I was knocked about by the possible China version, and Jonway as well, but nothing came fourth to my disgust. Then on that glorious day...A link, to WeFunder appeared in my desperate search attempts, and suddenly the sky was bright again. I bought in as an investor, and awaited the day I could put down a deposit. I almost delayed opening my email on the morning of Dec. 4th, but fate sat me down at my keyboard, and soon I was the proud owner of an early invoice for a Paradigm Plus. I keenly await the day when I can soar down the roads in the vehicle I have aspired to for so many years.
