Happy to get a special permit and pay taxes to keep my ICE cars.

Hybrid performance powertrains however? Hell yes. RWD low displacement I6/V8/V10/V12 with 2 high output FWD electric motors? Happy to see the development there.
Yes, this is where the top performance will lie for a while, until battery capacity gets a little better. The ability to capture braking energy and use it to sling/accelerate on the next straight is too much of an advantage to pass up and a petrol car just won't be able to complete with that, even if it's lighter, as it doesn't take that much battery space to do this.
