A lot can happen between now and 2030. Ireland (where I'm originally from) has made its usual political move of adopt the UK target (2030) without any thought as to how it's going to be achieved in practice. Outside parts of the east coast and Dublin it's a very sparsely populated country and is nowhere near set up for wholesale EV adoption. It's also got a huge agriculture industry and that machinery isn't going to switch to electric anytime soon. It's easy for a government of today to sail with the prevailing political winds when the target is a decade (and at least a couple of elections) away. EU policy on vehicle emissions for the past decade has been a joke. 10 years ago it was all about Co2 and diesel was pushed as the clean energy of the future. This resulted in mass uptake of diesel passenger cars that we now know are far worse than any gasoline car in terms of pollution. Then dieselgate happened and now some governments are incentivising scrapping diesel cars for 'cleaner' hybrids (ignoring the combined envirommental effect of recycling a diesel vehicle and manufacturing a new hybrid vehicle). Even if V12s are legislated out of existence in most of the world (and realistically that is likely to happen - I believe Mercedes are already close to phasing out their V12?) I don't see a massive price bump for the last remaining V12s. A few of us (the types who frequent these boards) are likely to stockpile them but the next generation will just look on at them in amusement or as a historical curiosity. It'll be a bit like the steam engine preservationists: they'll be kept in museums and storage and given the occasional run in public (if permitted by law). I don't think it's all bad - the LaFerrari is a hybrid and I haven't heard too many complaints about that car. If I lived in a European city I'd happily run around in something like the new electric Fiat 500 or my motorbike and keep my gasoline cars at my (imagined) home in the countryside for weekend use.
