From Virginia. Check out the car in reverse at 2:16 or so... wonder why it looked so jerky. Did the prepros have problems in reverse? Electric motor related?

Yes, a number of people reported "issues". They were apparently software problems, not that I have any details.
I drove the white car in reverse for a few feet during my test drive and it felt like the car was hopping up and down a bit as it was backing up. Not sure what the exact issue was. Software is a possible culprit since the car does not have a transmission and reverses by turning the electric motors backwards and you don't want to allow the driver to tap the full 400 HP when you are in reverse, so the computer probably limits the power in reverse and this is an artifact of that limitation.

Almost seems like it jumped into drive
