    Do you think EVs are the future? Would you ever drive a Tesla? 0-60 in 1.9 seconds is pretty tempting...

      +Nick Trelow I live in Virginia, my dad owns a Tesla, and his commute is 2 hours round trip of driving. He's never had to worry about charge, especially because it can charge to full at home in much less than a night.

      +ATX-CVPI not the roadster. The Tesla's have much less horsepower than a hellcat, which is why the top speed is lower. But you can make a car with more horsepower , it just hasn't happened yet.

      +lil casper it's not a production car. The roadster won't be the fastest car of all time, but it will be the fastest domestic market production car, unless something else edges it out before it's release.

      +Kyungjae Min why? It's electric, it literally has one gear. You couldn't and wouldn't add a transmission because it wouldn't do anything, there's nothing to shift up or down. If you don't like that, it's your opinion, but it is faster not having to shift.

    Completely silent cars should be limited to their acceleration and top speed so they don't sneak up on someone and cut them in half. Seriously, loud cars are safer because you can hear it. Also, loud cars are just fuckin awesome. Electric cars are for pussy city slickers that gotta be hip with the go-green shit

I've seen cars that are over 50 years whose doors open and close without fail and i've seen cars with fancy electronics whose doors fail less than 3 years after the car was built.
