The car design looks like a knock off of a car I saw on a trip to the UK,except that was powered by a turbo 4cly VW engine.

Fast is neat but who drive a hundred miles the refuels for four and a half hours? Why not sacrifice 75 pounds of battery, stick in one of those little Honda generators, keep the drive pure electric but charge as needed as it goes. Don't have to look for a plug that'll make a gas pump seem cheap by then.

Yea, I forgot what the name of that car was, saw it on some BBC show where they tested it against other supercars.
