Perhaps you should reexamine the manufacturing process of gas, and you'll see the manufacturing process of lithium batteries is still greener

Take a look at biodiesel. Obviously people are too retarded to realize it's the most logical route to take in moving away from gasoline...

My wife works at a Nissan dealership so I asked her to ask the GTR technician about this performance package and here's what she said the tech said. The Alpha 10 package is a totally aftermarket thing not endorsed by Nissan at all. Doing the package on the GTR will void your warranty and really does the GTR really need much 'overclocking'? Nissan does provide a performance tuning package which stays within their warranty.

True that, I guess I was trying to raise the point that there will still be pollution and disposal concerns no matter what tech we are using.

funny thing is, if you use launch control, which almost is needed for a good launch, your warranty is gone

Per the OP that thing looks like a smash up of the Tesla, a Mitsubishi 3000GT, and a Viper.... Not eye candy in my eyes.

They still aren't in production yet. All have been prototypes so far I believe.

EDIT: OK maybe im not that lazy, its the EV-1, and it was made more recently than i thought:

So things that suck is that cars and the infrastructure they require takes and a lot of place, which increase distances between where people lives and where they have to go, which require even more cars and infrastructure to people can go from one place to another fast.

The illusion that people need cars to go from one place to another is just caused by the fact that cars and infrastructure takes a lot of space.
If you build something high population-density, people live close to where they have to go, and they don't need cars, nor roads. That's the arcology part. Then, between two arcology, you can have a very high speed thing.

Within the arcology, you can have a rapid transit type transportation system on rail, or even two, for goods and people. So, if you want to order something online, it can be sent to your place AUTOMATICALLY within MINUTES, and it's very inexpensive.

Also, everyone,s crying about internet costs and UBB these days. Well, guess what: in an arcology, internet connection is gonna be ******* inexpensive too.

That's like living in the future, and that's what you want. Outside my arcology, there are gonna be ******* wolves roaming around, because another benefit of these high population density structure is that they don't create urban sprawls like car oriented city. So you live close to nature. How much more quality of life can you have when you can watch wolves eating and killing stuff while you eat your breakfast.
Didn't really pay attention until the last part.

It's more like, "How much more quality of life can you have when you can eat wolves for breakfast and kill stuff.
