    Car I have never seen before

    It was dark so no picture.. I usually look at every car I pass by I guess you could call me car crazy. This vehicle caught my eye. It was either a prototype or just released. There were three letters vertically on both sides of the license plate similar to dealer plates but can be sure. The exhaust pipes were located in the rear bumper and leaf shaped. I couldn't get a good look at the emblem that was circular. Rear lights were very thin. The badging said something like CS63? He was trying to race me but I just wanted to know what kind of car it was. Again it looked like a four door super car. Someone help me out and identify this car! It is bugging the $#@! out of me.

    This is going to be almost impossible to identify but what the hell.

    Leaf shaped exhaust pipes?

    Winner! That is what I saw!

    Edit: Your right next to me. It exited Crown Valley and went towards the beach, maybe you'll see it around too. Looked ridiculous.

    Eletronic motors produce a lot of torque.

    wonder why the car takes so long to reach 60 if it has nearly 1000 ft. lbs of torque... I wonder what it could do if the batteries were shorted straight to the motor leads?

    Electric will be more fun than internal combustion 10 years from now. They are developing some pretty insane bettery cell technology, when they can get the weight out of these battery packs its going to be game over for the internal combustion engine. There are currently 3 teams developing and testing electric powered LeMans protoypes...how's that for boring? Their two biggest downfalls ae size/weight and range, once they address size the range will correct itself.

    It's heavy and built for MPH not acceleration. They could run more juice to the motors I bet...
