I have had the chance to drive the Tesla Lotus.
I hated it. It was like the car had it's engine sitting on the roof.
Turn too hard and too fast and wooooooh stand back as this baby start to get sick!
And don't push it too hard on a hot day in NJ traffic or the engine will over heat.
Over all I was not impressed.
Good idea? YES! Will they figure it out one day? YES!
Is that day today? Sadly no.
