That buys a lot of gas.
I imagine in the near future, in some parts of the planet, you will have no choice if you want to drive your 356 vs trailer it to a show, pulled by an EV truck.
Since we live in the US that ain't likely to happen any time soon. So yeah, I simply don't get the attraction unless you just want to do it because you want to do it. Sort like why people lower trucks, or paint cars pink.
