Have you ever wanted front row valet parking, everywhere you go? Thumbs up from almost all fellow auto enthusiast, and especially the cops? Women asking you for a ride?.. Questions like; Are you a race car driver? Are you a designer? Do you work in IT? The best was a group of guys checking it out and one looked like he was humping my front wheel. No Joke! He claimed it was the sexiest car he's ever seen, such that he had the urge to F... the car. Ha! ... I seriously get this crazy attention on a daily basis with my Torq. The pride and the social aspect of owning a 1 of only 6 vehicles ever made with such style and extreme racing looks, has some positive attention to say the least. It looks like it would handle and is really fast. It is!  Hmmm... So you must be asking yourself by now, why is he selling it, Right? Answer- I'M NOT! I can not imagine selling my Torq. I have driven some really cool cars in my life and there is really nothing out there that is street legal and compares on many levels. A buddy of mine has a $500k Ferrari, he sadly laughs at my stories and claims that he mostly gets the impression of people thinking he's a rich douche, and chicks shy away. So no, I am not selling mine I am selling the last couple that are available.
Funny but I have run this ad for a couple weeks and I can not believe buyers/collectors haven't snapped these up. Alfa Romeo recently announced that they built a design with only 5 ever being produced. It looks plain and generic but the price per vehicle is in the millions. For the record, the intended mass production retail price for a top performance Torq was to be around $90k. The company has spent around $5 million dollars on these 6 machines, with countless man hours, extensive engineering and a parts list alone that the cost far exceeds my asking price here on eBay. Funny how most will look right past an opportunity like this and later regret it. This is a cutting edge pioneer in the electric vehicle space that will transform your image, and how you will view performance cars in the future, for only around $45k.  I just updated my listing with this paragraph at 10:00 a.m. on Wed. June 25th. to see how long it will take till somebody understands my generosity and value they will be getting. With over 6000 views thus far, will you be the first who gets it and can afford this opportunity?

Like I mentioned there is nothing out there like this, very collectable, countless man hours, extensive engineering and about $5M is what it took to build. Serious attention was quickly received for these hand built machines (Same engineer who designed the Aptera) but Funding failed to materialize for mass production due to the high cost to build.

2013 TORQ- Red/ Black, 400 miles- Top performance pkg. Being sold here now for just $45k (If you do not like Red, easy to wrap.)

2013 TORQ- Red/Carbon kit with under 400 miles- Top performance pkg. for $56k (Call)

 Cars are located in southern CA; I can help with transportation if needed. Please only email or call if you are ready with funds, and are seriously interested. Thx!


All Torq's are in like new condition and are in perfect working order; I can help with shipping.

(Formula 1 inspired design, street legal, 100% electric, Open Roadster design, 1.3G lateral handling, 0-60 under 4 seconds, 612 lb-ft. torque, 400+ hp. & up to 100+ mile range per charge)

If interested, please read on:

Repair? The car is not like most that will need scheduled maintenance, oil changes and such, it's virtually maintenance free. If and when needed is very easy as all parts can be purchased and installed easily. Netgain is a very old and proven company in the electric vehicle space. The Torq uses their Motor (Warp 9), Their 1400v controller and Vortex Lithium battery's that all are super reliable and any electric golf cart repair shop, or, EV conversion company (Many in the world) can fix anything that might come up. It's a real basic car when it comes right down to it. Rims, Tires, suspension... all can be purchased virtually anywhere since it was intended to be shipped and sold around the world. Most parts come from The Volkswagen golf and it has a BMW Transaxel from a Z3. Yes, a really simple electric car design is my point. If you are looking for all the comforts of most modern electric cars, the Torq's design platform was intended to appeal to the serious enthusiast. Light weight, performance that only the exotics can match, for hundreds of thousands less, and it gets "way more" attention! With a 1.3G Lateral handling, a blazing 0-60, and a simple low maintenance low repair cost. End result... Awesome!

Read what some have posted on message boards about this vehicle:

Well HELLO White!!! Track kit with extra air cooling installed to give this beast even more impressive performance With a 0-60mph in 4 seconds and 2X+ the Torque of a Tesla Roadster what color do I want? I hear the white body panels can be easily removed and wrapped in any color; Chrome, primers... or any pattern design you might like. I love this white!

612 lb-ft of TORQUE!!! More than twice that of the Tesla Roadster!!! They do call it the TORQ for a reason.

So the TORQ weighs in at about 2,200 pounds. That's nearly 600 pounds less than a Tesla Roadster and a whopping 2,600 pounds less than a Model S. So, although the Model S has comparable torque to the TORQ Roadster (430 lb/ft) it is pulling the same weight as two TORQ Roadsters *and* a sport bike combined.

The TORQ EV looks like a MONSTER side by side with a Tesla Roadster When do we get to see them race?!?

"Is this rear wheel drive?". In fact it is NOT. The TORQ is front wheel driven to keep the weight forward and your POWER on the road! To illustrate I snapped a picture of the electric motor in the front of the TORQ. Notice its almost at the nose and the differential is just behind it to drive the front wheels.

How many miles do you get on a single charge? I've been getting 80-90 miles per charge on most cycles but it REALLY depends on how you drive it. If it is a REALLY aggressive drive then you could see the range dip by 20% or more. But if you drive it like a minivan then you will get over 100 miles on a charge! I just proved 125 miles on a single charge. 

How long does it take to charge? It's designed to accept both a 110v 3 prong home style plug, and the industry standard EV station 240v plug-in. It can be charged as quick as 6-8 hrs. on the 240v plug and about a full day on the standard household 110v plug. The Torq has a 3.2kw variable voltage charger and a battery management system (BMS)

Does it have a top? No, the Torq was not designed to have a top as they were targeting the hardcore buyer/collector/racer, they had not planned to market it to the buyer looking for their daily driver car but rather their 3rd. car. This is as close as I've seen and driven to being in an Indy F1 race car. The silent performance and open roadster design is breathtaking.

In this listing I had to use my 2005 BMW GS Vin # because I have yet to register the Torq with DMV. The Torq is classified and gets registered as a Motorcycle, not a car. Very easy to insure and much lower cost than most cars. I have the Manufactures Statement of Origin (MSO) so all you will need to do is take it to any state DMV. 

So there you have it, that's all I can think about at the moment. If you have any question I can be reached at 310 863 0877

The White car is located in Marina Del Rey, CA, 10 minutes away from LAX airport. The others are down in San Diego. If serious and want a test drive, let me know. 

Thanks for reading. Good Luck!

If you are looking for a generic Hybrid or EV like; Nissan Leaf, Toyota Prius, Chevy Volt or maybe a higher performance vehicle like; Spyker, Fisker, Tesla... The Torq will take you to a whole new level in EV performance and coolness. You will feel like a world famous race car driver, every time you take her out.
