Aptera - The 300 MPG Car Of The Future
The Aptera looks like a car straight out of the pages of a 1960's Popular Mechanics magazine article about the car of the future. They're claiming that it can achieve 300 mpg! That's about what I get on one tank. You can buy an all electric version (~$27,000) which costs about $1-$2 in electricity per nightly charge, or the electric-hybrid (~$30,000).
And there are cup holders. Sweet.
So, where's the woo? Boy, I wish I could find the website that calculated the maximum a car could go based on the energy content within one gallon of gasoline...but it escapes me. I would have loved to thrust this in their noses!

Awesome. Frankly, all it's missing is wings...then we could have the promised plane in every garage.
