It certainly hasn't been smooth sailing for the Aptera crew over the last few months. From the news that cash is running low and the company's original founders are taking an extended leave from their duties, questions about Aptera's ability to deliver its aerodynamic three-wheeler are running rampant. Still, there's obviously something going on out there in California, as evidenced by this a new spy shot.
We're not entirely sure what exactly we're looking at here, but one guess is that this is a mule for either a gas-powered model or possibly a hybrid. Either of those scenarios may explain the awkwardly fitting hood, roof-mounted air intake and the large underbody that we've never seen on any other prototypes from the company. In any case, at least we now know that Aptera is still working on something. Thanks for the tip, Matthijs!
