    I am still amazed that Tesla manages to to get the PR that it does. Not that it's not deserved, but maybe I just don't notice when a Royal or other VIP takes a spin in the latest gasser.

    My point: Have the major manufacturers still not figured out that BEVs are their future? All technological hurdles aside, why haven't we seen a company like Dodge slap some batteries in the Viper and watch it compete? It's very frustrating from a consumer standpoint.

    I also notice the he is actually driving the car. Never seen a picture of Arnold driving the car. Is he that special or do they just have a spare handy?

    It's the same one Damon Hill drove last week (VP 12?). It may have been convenient to fit this in at the same time.
