    I think if GM was making the Volt without the Tesla model to copy, they would have done it in total secrecy -especially after the EV1 debacle.

    Well, I think people would be snickering at GM if they were launching anything that cost $100K.

    Yeah, I was waiting for someone to mention the ZR1. That's what I get for my attempt at sarcasm.
