  2. Interesting, but I think I'll try to support the homeland vehicle first. Servicing might prove a bit better for now. :)

    What I'd like to know is how does a startup venture capital company produce the fastest and sleekest electric car ever made - one that will likely sell out quickly and have huge waiting list.
    I thought there were significat 'barriers to entry' in the auto biz - let alone the more advanced futuristic electric auto biz.
    Its pretty clear that GM, Toyota, Honda, or just about any car maker out there could have easily produced this car - with even better performance and lower cost. Kind of makes you wonder how much influence the oil industry has on the auto industry.
