    but wait, there's more :)

    Tesla has grabbed headlines for innovating electric cars and driverless technology. Companies such [as] Toyota, GM and Mercedes may not have the trendy cache[t] of Tesla, but they do have deep pockets.

    Heh. two typos in that synopsis from the NPR website. I thought that NPR hired English Majors?!

    ;)

    I bet it still has a battery...

    I found it interesting on the old cars when the alternator went out, there was still enough juice in the 12v battery to get me about 5 or 6 miles with the headlights on, yet today’s hybrids will only get you no more than 50, and they have all that expensive tech crap under the hood.

    Guess who wins? Granted it's just a 1/4 mile drag race.

    If you want to skip ahead... the line up of cars is introduced at 3:00.

    It was a stupid race. They had a GS Vette, instead of a Z06?
    And why the hell did have a Cayman AND 911 Turbo S?
    I refuse to argue with idiots, because people can't tell the DIFFERENCE!

    Because everybody is keeping their money in the Cayman Islands ever since 9/11.

    Coincidence? I think not.

    Just gonna drop this here:

    LAPD Electric BMWs Appear Unused Or Misused
    But sources say some personnel are reluctant to use the electric cars because they can only go 80-100 miles on a charge.
