    A lot of streets have speed limit 35-45 mph. Out of curiosity, starting from red light, with instantaneous torque, is there a faster gas car? Some cars challenge me and even with my 60D, I haven't been beaten.

    A gen 2 Volt might come close. It has a 0-30 of 2.2 seconds.

    I think there are a couple, on paper. But that assumes that they are holding high revs waiting for the light to roll, and floor it out of the gate (or use launch control.)

    No factory stock ICE production road car can manage it without warning, or come close to the dynamic response if they weren't planning on it initially.

    Racing on the street is dangerous to you and everyone around you. Some guy might come back from the future to warn you...

    Yeah, I am restraining these days. Of times I did, beyond the speed limit, I have let them go past me.

    Porche 918 will beat you, but not sure if that technically qualifies as a 'gas' car.

    Funny thing is from the city where S Classes, Teslas, Maserati's are so common, I haven't spotted a Porsche 918 yet. I saw many 911 tho'

    EDIT: LMAO, I just checked the price of 918. No wonder...

    All I know is my four and two year old love it when I goose it, even if only a moment (10mph-35mph). They laugh every time. "Again, again!". Mommy, not so much.
