Sung Kang’s Next Car Build is a Nod to the Future and Past

Sung Kang Fugu Z Driving

It’s 2020. A new decade. A new FAST & FURIOUS film around the corner. And on the horizon, a new car build for Sung Kang.

The type of car is still being debated. The only thing known for certain is that it will be an EV conversion, similar to the 280Z we covered earlier. When asked why he was interested in electric cars, Kang gave a simple answer: “it’s the future.”

In a reflective tone, Kang talked about his place in the car community:

“Sometimes I feel like I got a free ticket to the driver’s seat because of my association with the FAST & FURIOUS franchise. I ask myself, how do I give back to the community that has given me so much joy and support in my life?”

It’s no secret that battery-powered engines are better for the environment than standard internal combustion engines, so with an eye towards a brighter, cleaner future, Kang is excited for his EV conversion.

“I’d like to be able to build cars that can give the same type of visceral feeling and sense of community that the Fugu Z did. So hopefully through this electric journey I can somehow bridge the gap between the love affair we have with old steel cars, and cleaner, cutting edge, electric technology.”

Which car do you think Sung should choose for his EV conversion? And Why?
