Man, this is one seriously sexy car. It’s just a concept and it’s incredibly impractical, but I want to have its babies. [via @brilliantcrank]

Aside from Mini, no one has released a car in the U.S. that is both small and luxurious. To us, luxury is big and spacious. Unfortunately, this is just a concept, but I’d love to see this made. Cadillac is doing a fantastic job of bringing elegant design back to U.S. automakers. Autoblog has many more photos.
This is long, but it is also awesome. [via @joeljohnson]
Richard Fuchs has documented every aspect of the life of his 1971 Ford Mustang. I would love to see a Feltron-esque report.
David Pogue interviews Shai Agassi, the founder of Better Place, which is building a network of plug-in stations and electric cars. They have an unusual model. "We sell miles, the way that AT&T sells you minutes. They buy bandwidth and they translate into minutes. We buy batteries and clean electrons-we only buy electrons that come from renewable sources-and we translate that into miles." The interviews a great read and I can't help but get excited by his pie-in-the-sky plans.
It's an in-line two seater, which is weird, but they are bringing this to market in just two years. The tank will only hold 1.7 gallons, but that will take you 400 miles. It maxes out at 75 mph, but at 700 lbs. that seems plenty fast. Hopefully they can keep costs down and provide adequate storage because that will be the determining factor.
Looks good, relatively cheap and does 73.5 mpg in the real world. BRING TO US KTHXBYE.
