I'm surprised that road tyres are even produced that can handle that amount of acceleration and speed.
Much, much nicer to look at than the current crop from the majors (some of them are just butt ugly). There is a market for such vehicle. A handful of successful brands and models on the market for years. Plus the Tesla roadster seats 4, most don't. It out performs all of them, hands down, and is listed to cost less as well. Plus imagine the difference between driving a high performance EV compared to a "comparable" ICE with an 8 or 9 speed automatic. Seems to me like it would be the difference between driving the iMiev and any "comperable" ICE automatic . . . times 10 perhaps?
Plus all the ICE's in the super car class are gas hogs with small-ish gas tanks. I doubt that there is anything in this class (except the Tesla) that has a >250-275 mile single tank range!
