Back last month when we had a chance to sit down with Sir Gordon Murray himself, we asked if there was perhaps an intention to put the T.50 on a fitness regimen to prepare it for racing. The word then was that there would be 25 additional series production track cars with an intent to possibly start a supercar racing series.

The vehicle and oil industries are being disrupted … the “4 Horsemen of the Auto Industry Apocalypse” … estimating market size … how to play it

… the automobile and oil industries are among the largest on Earth.

They control nations. The value of the assets under their control runs into the trillions of dollars.

And these industries are about to get totally upended.

That’s from Matt McCall’s most recent issue of Investment Opportunities.

Matt’s vision of how transportation will evolve this decade is astonishing. And as consumers and beneficiaries of this transformation, there’s reason for excitement.

But for many of the major players in the vehicle and oil industries, this sea-change carries a different emotional charge — concern.
