    Wow, this would be an exciting new sports car if this was the year 2005. The looks is dated, the performance; not bad, the range just ok but the asking price, seriously!?!
  • Hmm... Looks a lot like my Tesla Roadster that I've had for four years now. This is somehow "new"?

    Tesla already built this car years ago, but just to lay the foundation for the Model S. If Detroit Electric intends to do the same, they better have a great idea waiting in the wings. And, hey, maybe there are those who missed out on the Tesla roadster and will get a second chance.

    "the plant will have an annual capacity of 2,500 vehicles", "Production of the SP:01 will be limited to 999 units", "...not yet sure how much of a federal tax credit will apply". This all sounds really well thought out. They're also more than a little late to putting batteries in Lotuses. I wouldn't hold my breath on this one.
