Rimac's C Two: World's Fastest Car
Croatian startup Rimac, with the financial backing of Porsche, Kia and Hyundai, has developed the world's first electrified, autonomous hypercar, the limited edition C Two. The vehicle was unveiled at the 2018 Geneva Auto Show as a concept close to production.  It received great reviews and orders for the $2 million vehicle sold out in record time.  The company is now closing in on delivering those orders by late 2020.  Porsche has at least a 15% investment stake in Rimac.

Loaded with Highly Advanced Technology:  Electric and Level 4 Autonomous
The vehicle has four electric motors that deliver 1,914 horsepower.  It may be the world's fastest car.  Rimac says in 1.85 seconds it accelerates from 0 to 60 mph.  To go autonomous, the technology suite includes 6 radar sensors, lidar, 8 cameras, 12 ultrasonic sensors.  All of that technology delivers Level 4, hands free driving. The tech for Level 4 driving generates 8 terabytes per hour. Rimac CEO Mate Rimac says he and his engineering team used detailed computer simulations to design the car.

17 Prototypes and Back to Geneva Auto Show 2020
The Rimac team has created 17 different prototypes which they're testing around the world to pull together a vehicle with the best performing components in it.  The final prototype will be unveiled at the 2020 Geneva Auto Show.  And, the 150 pre-ordered vehicles will be delivered by late 2020.
