Hopefully there a loophole where they say make an electric car that gets 50mpg so they will be able to offer a sport's car that is reasonable 17-20mpg. Sounds like the gas guzzling V8's day's are numbered.

The loophole you mentioned is actually part of the bill. The bill is stating that the average MPG has to be averaged between their ENTIRE fleet.

So if they can pull a 100mpg car out of their arse, they're able to produce a 1 mpg car safely
