Aptera Founders No Longer Employees

by The Editors on February 6, 2010

Aptera-Typ-1-300X180In November Aptera Motors founder Steve Fambro told Popular Mechanics that contrary to rumors he was not ousted from the company, he was simply on vacation until the end of the year. Well, the end of the year is over and now according to Venturebeat.com Fambro and his partner Chris Anthony are no longer employees of the Carlsbadistan based electric car manufacturer.

While Fambro and Anthony have retained their seats on the Carlsbad, Calif. company’s board of directors, they have little say in day-to-day decision making, even though it was their original vision. These responsibilities have fallen to Aptera’s new CEO Paul Wilbur — one of the main sources of conflict with the original leadership team (though it remains uncertain why the rift occurred).

They certainly dragged that exit out as long and as corporately correct as they could, didn’t they?

This is a very cool looking car – the website shows a 2009 version, but it doesn’t look like it’s in production. I hope this company makes it available soon.
