    It’s garish and boisterous and I’m being charitable… I can only hope that it comes with a passenger bag dispenser so that I can put one over my head, in case I ever have to hitch a ride with someone that owns one. I don’t think that I know anyone that would own one. If you happen to be a rich guy who wants to demonstrate how sublimely refined and sophisticated you are, this is definitely not the way to do it… It’s just another cheap trick (gimmick) from the makers of the “ultimate driving machine”….

    Let’s just say, it’s the leisure suit of 2011….. The girls in the barrio are going to love you Big Daddy…

    Mmmmmmm….! People want to know where innovation comes from and where it is refined? The history of autos shows that almost all major benefits have come from racing programs. ABS, Traction Control, Direct injection, EFI, Side impact safety standards, transmission improvements,…if you can name it, it was probably perfected not because of government mandate, but because of competition and the desire to win.

    If “hybrid technology” is going to really, really take hold and improve, racing programs will have to incorporate the technology and use it to figure out how to win. Porsche exposed us to this last year with the 24hours of Lemans. They were winning and this very technology shown above is why. Their car broke, but it was the combustion engine that failed, not the new technology.

    It is exciting that Porsche is even implementing this at all and making it available! Damn they’re good!

    OK, this does it for me. It’s always been the fuel cost
    that kept me from buying one of these babies. But now that I know
    that I can save money on fuel via the hybrid technology, I’ll
    definitely put this one on my shopping list. Not to mention the
    added benefit from the reduction of my carbon footprint.
