    "Think about it: Imagine the uproar if GM announced it was launching a two-seat electric sports car that cost $100,000, the snickering at the failed attempt to build a two-speed transmission, the concern over the repeated delayed delivery of the first cars to customers. "

    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.
