I’d say probably a Tesla. Aside from motors (that can be replaced), batteries (that can also be replaced) and electronic controllers, there aren’t many moving parts. As technology advances, those aforementioned parts will become more common and generic. » 4/09/15 9:11pm 4/09/15 9:11pm

Sorry Jason, I know you like Beetles but in its current form, it needs to die. There’s nothing that really sets it apart other than its styling, which you either like or you don’t. I don’t see very much of these driving around so my guess is most people don’t. I’d rather have VW put more effort to bringing a Scirocco… » 3/31/15 10:36pm 3/31/15 10:36pm

My best friend in college had one of these, not the Petty edition but same gen. It was a nice looking car, but we spent more time pushing it back to the dorms than driving it around. It was a major pile of crap, but looked good. Myself, I wouldn't buy this at any price to save myself the headache. » 3/17/15 9:02am 3/17/15 9:02am

This may work if they keep the weight of the tire the same. If it's heavier compared to a regular tire then I can't imagine a huge positive energy gain. Considering that it has to be more expensive than a comparable rubber tire this tech is probably destined for the distant future. » 3/09/15 4:19pm 3/09/15 4:19pm

Its all about crappy mismanagement and mis-allocation of funds. Blame the MTA leadership and TWU. Everyone wants more and more pay for the same work. There was an article in the local paper last year, over 10k MTA employees earned over $100k/yr. Fare increases mostly don't go towards infrastructure or equipment… » 3/05/15 2:08pm 3/05/15 2:08pm

I love the performance on this car but wish Honda would turn it down a few notches in terms of styling. Too boy racer-y for me. The target audience for this thing is probably unmarried men 28-34 y/o. I don't see this thing selling well in any other demographic, which probably means it's not coming to the states. » 3/03/15 10:52am 3/03/15 10:52am
