    I prefer your ‘best guess’ frankly. What’s the difference? Any remaining interest in the regurgitated blogs is in seeing if you’re right.

    What's your definition of "future". This video was made a year and a half before Marty McFly and Doc Brown showed up in the future where they don't need roads and MrFusion was all you needed for power.

    Probably not EM's first choice for this week's Friday update, but ,,,, I guess this is better than nothing,,, but not much better.

    The Votes Are In…

    April 13, 2018

    Happy Friday Elio’ers! Hopefully you’ve been able to successfully avoid walking under ladders and black cats have steered clear of your path. Today, if you haven’t noticed, is Friday the 13th. Why is 13 considered an unlucky number? There’s no definitive answer, but it has been considered a number to avoid since the Middle Ages. We don’t get it. By many accounts, Friday is the best day of the week: not only is it the end of the workweek, but there’s always a Friday Blog to look forward to. We’re not sure about you but we’re going to eschew superstition and enjoy this Friday the 13th!

    A couple of weeks ago we introduced a new contest. We realized that our supporters have been providing us with some great ideas for a t-shirt design, so we invited you all to send in your best ideas. Honestly, the entries were tremendous and narrowing down the best entries was an agonizing process. Last week, we showed the five best entries and opened up the polls.

    Each of the five entries did incredibly well and had significant support because they were all great ideas. While there can be only one winner, we think that all of the designs will make for great Elio Motors merchandise. We received a lot of support for the fourth and fifth place finishers, the 3>4 and Elio Wave concepts- very clever, and definitely something we’ll keep in mind for the future. Posters, coffee cups, shirts, sweatshirts, hats, you name it. We can see all of these images included in the Elio brand.

    Without further ado, here are the final three.

    The “Big Elio,” which came in third, garnered an impressive 21% of the vote. This design carried a lot of fan support and will be kept on file for a future batch of shirts, possibly as the back graphic with one of the winners.

    After number three, things definitely got interesting. We monitored the polls all week and the final two entries were neck and neck right up to the time the poll closed. You’ve probably heard the term every vote counts. That is absolutely true in this case as both entries received 26.6% of the vote and the winner was decided by one vote. Yes, you read that correctly. One single vote separated Watercolor and Splash from adorning our next t-shirt.

    Here they are.

    And the winner is….Splash! The race was so close that we plan to use Watercolor for the next batch of shirts behind Splash. A big congratulation to the winner, Adam, who will receive some Elio Motors swag and the t-shirt he designed when it prints. Also, thank you so much to all that participated- it was fun for us to see the impressive amount of creativity displayed by our supporters as well as the notes and ideas we received about using them in different ways.

    Thanks for your support and make a splash this weekend

    As of early Tuesday 17 December, no regurgitated blog since 6 December. I know EM missed around Thanksgiving weekend this year, but have they missed any other non holiday weekend before? Or have they simply run out of info to re-re-publish?

    It's a good barometer of how people just don't care and have moved on. I remember when it was a big deal when Elio went from two to one per week. Then those went to regurgitated blogs. Then Elio has started to skip a few here or there. Th concern seems to be gone. It's like people lowered the bar for expectations and Elio is feeding that by literally doing nothing.

    I imagine only a handful of people believe Elio will be built with Paul Elio as the leader. People stopped caring about the blog and are just waiting for a new owner or shutdown.

    I personally think they should discontinue the weekly blogs unless some real news come in. I would be embarrassed to re-print them at this point. Then if something does hit our mailbox, it will bring the excitement back again. I remember when I first reserved the spot in line, I couldn't wait to read there blog. But now find it sad and I don't even open it, as a rule.

    Uh... No. I'm pretty sure I already bet, and lost, a thousand dollars plus a few hundred more on stock.

    I stopped receiving the weekly blogs months ago and don't know why. My brother still gets them and forwards them to me. So far, I really haven't missed anything. I keep hoping for some real news that gives us an idea of what is really going on with the company and Paul.
