    Looks like Rheazombi got her wish, but at 15" it's about 1:10 scale.

    Looks pretty faithful to the real car, except for the front spoiler.

    Is this the first time an EV has been made into a scale EV?

    That first link looks kinda like a scam (on sale for $58.88 from $99.99!!) so I'm going to remove it.

    I received mine. Pretty damn cool. Don't care that it's RC, as it will just sit on a shelf in my office.

    The paint quality and detail work is nice for a model at this price.

    But the under-body quick-swap, Better-Place-compatible traction pack from a 2012 model! :wink::

    Not for the battery pack... Under-body tray... improved center of gravity!

    But, the motor and "PEM" are in the right place!

    Yes, I now have three sizes of Roadster - small, extra small (rc), and matchbox. The small one is still the most fun ;-)

    2 out of 3 will have to do (for now)...

    By the way, the headlights work on the RC car.
