OT-Tesla Car

Pretty cool. A sports car designed to run on Lithium cells (thousands of cells as per the description). 0-60 in 4 seconds with a top speed of over 130 mph and a range of 250 miles. I think I'm going to have to replace my Triton charger.

cool, but were is the prop suppose to go?

when it comes to Ecars, i find that i am like a gas airplane kinda guy. nothing beats the sound of a screamin' engine, the feel of banging through the gears and the "hang on to your hat", get up and get outa here of a muscle car.

I dunno... electrics and hybrids always had a granola/birkenstock feel to them that did not appeal to me. The Tesla however, has a pretty big cool factor, kinda like the Lexus in Minority Report

Now all it needs is a Grateful Dead and "Meat is Murder" bumper sticker on the back and all the hippies will want one

Neat concept though.
