    World's Fastest Car - 1,000HP Electric

    World's Fastest Car Goes Electric
    The guys at Shelby SuperCars, having taken down the mighty Bugatti Veyron to claim the title of fastest car on the planet, are challenging Tesla Motors for electro-supremacy with an EV it promises will put down 1,000 horsepower.

    Interesting, but like the Veyron, a toy for the silly-rich.

    I'd like to see an electric car that can equal the capability of a modern economy sedan for no more than 20 percent above the MSRP of a current economy sedan.

    That will impress me.
