Expectations for 2017

This might be a bit premature but I would love to get all your opinions on your expectations for Koenigsegg in the rest of 2016 and 2017.

After the unveiling of the production spec of the Regera and the announcement that all the Agera RSs have been sold, what are your expectations for 2017? A new model or the unveiling of the rest of the special 3 Agera RSs?

Also are we expecting that Koenigsegg will resume its trials on the Nurburgring? And the further development of camless engines?

All 28 (?) RS should have been delivered around March 2017 just in time for the replacement car.. I think the new "Agera" is going to be a hybrid.. He says he dont like them but i think he have to go that way, the V8 is reaching its maximum and the Chiron is 1500hp.

We sure have exciting times ahead of us!

My thought exactly, but it contradicts everything he says about hybrids but then again the Regera's battery pack is really compact and light for what it is so maybe a smaller version of that with the One:1 engine could make 'enough' performance to be competitive.

On the other hand I would love for Koenigsegg to go in the other direction and focus on being as light as possible and keep it at the same power levels as the RS or the One:1

Next big thing is Goodwood FOS I guess? Seeing the Regera going up the hill climb, test drives of the production car?

Koenigsegg has been quiet for some time now after the failed Nurburgring attempts. Are we still hoping to see the Agera successor in Geneva 2017 or do you all think they'll focus on the production version of the Regera and the final Agera RS builds? Now seeing such cars as the Aston Martin AMRB 001 and the new Mercedes hypercar, I wonder how Koenigsegg will stay competitive, but I love the fact that they are all chasing the 1:1 ratio and Koenigsegg has already done it! Always ahead of everyone else.

I think they are busy enough with the Regera, seeing as there is currently a 3+ year waiting time..
