Electric Sports Car
All the buzz has been about this hot little sports car lately. Today Mark Morford opined on it in his column. But it does look like the auto industry failed to keep this one down, and I suspect this will be the next darling of the Hollywood set. The big downside is that it takes 3.5 hours to charge, rather than a ten minute stop at the gas station mid-road-trip, so it's great as long as you're going less than 250 miles. Still, I expect to see a lot of these cruising the streets of Los Feliz in the next five years, because ultimately plugging in to the grid is far more efficient than producing your own energy one car at a time. And even earthy, crunchy green folks love a sexy sports car once in a while.
