Cars have been a progression of technology since the horse and carriage. In my life I have seen the electrical car come and go twice. The electric Rave 4 in the late 90's, the EV-1 and a few others have been put to rest. Now we have Tesla, a company who is making the industry change to its market.
Cars are designed and sculpted by the best designers in the wold. Some can be considered driving art. Hot - Rods from So-Cal to Art - Deco cars from France. To the lines on a Porsche. All have to be asethetically pleasing first.
