I had another thread going about the Tesla Roadster, but it seems to be lost right now.
Here are some links that will help you believe, my friend!
0 to 60 in four seconds:
Tesla Roadster - Electric Plug-in Sports Car
Tesla Roadster -
It is an all electric vehicle (EV) that can go 0-60 mph in 4 seconds. It has a range of 250 miles on a single charge and the electricity cost will be less than 2 cents per mile. Oh yeah, it will cost around $100k. The company, Tesla Motors, will start taking orders tomorrow and hopes to begin delivery by mid 2007.
[also, I cannot find the Popular Science mag article about this amazing electric car. I had it, its gone. You try. ]
