I think it is very likely just the sort of confirmation thing that has to eventually happen / leak out / sneak out / connect the dots.
Isn't Shelby's "revolutionary power source" obviously the EESU?
Part of July 12, 2008 announcement:
"The drive train under development will feature a revolutionary power source allowing for extended time between charging intervals with the possibility of several years between charging".
"revolutionary power source" - can you say EESU?
"several years between charging" - doesn't say under use.
EESU's 0.02% / 30 days discharge fits that odd phrase.
And Shelby's going to be using 500 HP emotors.
ZENN's exclusive license ends at 100 KW (~135 HP) *continuous* ~350 peak HP, per my rule of thumb.
This could be an incredibly exact perfect jigsaw puzzle piece match to known facts.
Shelby could have a high end EESU license.
February 2009 prototype roll out.
Fits with current statements and confidence about (long delayed) schedule.
Shelby, himself, still alive?
He / company have an innovative, maverick streak / reputation?
Just the sort of person / company Weir would seek out?
That would add a lot of media pizzaz and sparkle at the roll out / announcment?
