We’re privileged to have some extraordinarily talented contributors here at HFL, including JT Nesbitt, who just designed, then built this CNG-powered roadster by hand. It’s the first vehicle of its kind that’s been designed from the ground-up to incorporate the clean-burning fuel, allowing JT to enjoy all the thrills of internal combustion while emitting 40 percent less CO2 than an equivalently fast gasoline-powered car. He plans to drive it from his New Orleans home to New York, then to LA this fall, joined by our friend Max Materne, who helped with the build.
