It's obvious the current flaws with the Wenkel design, they left it alone once and they wouldn't go back to it unless they knew this time it wouldn't be an issue.

How much sense does it make to use a dirty (emissions wise) motor to power an electric "ECO" car? None.

dirty motor .. are we talking diesel now?

nah .. I won't go there on how diesel is an old technology used still today and how its a lot worse the petroleum for our environment.

The only flaw with the Wankel design is the apex seal.
