    Talking Your new Car? Investment? Thrill?

    This is a good start!
    Check em out.....

    These two gentlemen here in my area have a startup company making these cars. They have 60M in investors so far. They will be DOT crash testing 12 vehicles soon/now…. They have sold 700 of these so far. First ones are a bit pricey but is the going price for a car that goes 0 to 60 in 4 SECONDS! The good thing that get better is they are ELECTRIC... The engine is the size of a Watermelon. CHECK OUT THE TORQUE CURVE! Seat pinning Torque!

    After the intial price tag they estimate the operating cost is 1 Cent a mile...

    0-60 in 4 SECONDS and is Electric! Really
    Top end #s have been 135 MPH
    I saved this for last.... They do cost over 100K right now but they are working on production version to bring down the cost.

    Hopefully we might be filling up at the a Power grid on the side of the road in the near future.

    Wow. That is awesome. They have had electric technology but it usually involved a fleet of batteries and acceleration and speed was not quite as good. Good for this guy to put something out there that is actually appealing to the consumer. The only downfall is the current price $100k. I'm surely in line to purchase one when the price is more reasonable or affordable.
