    might be good if you are single. not so good if you have a family.
    it is a gimic at best.

    tesla is stil at the top of my list of alternate fuel cars until someone can produce a viable hydrogen car.
    the only problem with both is that they are so expensive.

    i priced out a model s almost 100k that costs about as much as my house.

    So you want to buy one of those gas guzzlers and kill the planet?

    That rating will mean squat if one tangles with a Ford F-150.

    If somebody offered to buy that car for me, I'd have to make some priorities. What would be more important, saving gas money or getting laid?

    From what I have heard the car is a blast to drive, tandem two seats.
    It would be great for me to go back and forth to work.
    It's like a motorcycle, but without the environmental exposure.

    Legally it is a motorcycle.
