here is a better Tesla...

7 pass/300 mi range/0 to 60 in 4.5 sec....

Saw something this week from Nortwestern University about increasing capacity of Lithium Ion batteries 10x and speed up charging 10x.

http://www.techspot.com/news/46278-breakthrough-could-bring-tenfold-increase-in-battery-life.html

Would that  mean 1,500 to 3.000 mile range?  Now wouldn't THAT be cool.!

Would start with 10x capacity, but after 150 charge/discharge cycles it would go down to 5x.

So 3,000 mile range at 10x down to a 1,500 mile range at 5x.

Bad news is 2012 models are sold out (and I haven't won anyway).

So I have to wait until 2013.... :-)

    Well I do not drive any more.  So my mother wants a lincoln MKX when I win the lottery because she does all the driving.  So that is what I am going to buy her a new Lincoln MKX and in red.  She likes that color too.  Fully loaded from the dealership here in Mcminnville oregon.  I like the car too.-weshar75

        My dream car would be totally boring. I'd buy a subscription to Consumer Reports and research the mid-range SUVs. Whatever's at the top of the list for safety and reliability, I'd go test drive. Not very green, I know, but if I won enough, I'd definitely build a house with radiant heating floors and solar panels for electricity.

            Fiat.

            I hadn't heard that name in years but I just saw one on tv the other day.

            Looks like a pretty cool little car.

                          Got mine, its a Ferrari 355 SpyderYellow/Black but the 50 K mile service is what Kills Ya. Every 50 K U gotta drop the engine for a complete service which runs about 5-6 grand.

                              I would want a armored car like a armored Hummer

                              because the one thing I hate more than tree huggers is the looks people give to wealthy people driving around in Hummer

                              why they're driving a piece of crap for an appearance of saving the environment

                              the fact is humans put out less carbon dioxide than the whole ocean produces

                              and also the earth was a lot warmer in the dark ages then it is right now

                              it's completely an natural cycle of ice ages and warming

                                they should get over themselves

                               

                              and the fact is if your Powerball or mega millions winner and you have so much money why the hell not

                              I prefer the most badass vehicle possible  while being functional

                              have a bunch of guns in there just the practical purposes of self-defense

                               

                              I also want expensive RV just for driving around and for camping out purposes

                              my entire philosophy is if you the money buy whatever the hell it is you want and screw everyone else's opinion such as tree hugging hippies

                              No bees, no honey.
