AC Propulsion have just released results from testing their T-zero sports car. 0-60 in 3.6 seconds, 0-100 in first gear!

In tests at the dragstrip, it out-accelerated a Corvette C5, a Porsche Carrera 4, a Lamborghini and a Ferrari 360.





No need for petrol in this thing though, it’s all electric! The same batteries that you have in your laptop means it has a range of 300 miles, costs 2 to fill up and can be recharged in under an hour. Now that’s what I call progress!

The latest posting on their "What's New" page is one year old. Do they still exist? Are they still doing anything? Will they ever actually market a car?

Yeah, they should get their act together. The product is either real or it's not.

And I don't want to hear any whiny conspiracy theories about how "big oil" or "big auto" is preventing them from making and marketing an actual product.

No conspiracy theories from me. I just wonder if they are too few and too small to actually market a car. All the safety issues, and testing, and the facilities needed for mass production if the price is to be affordable (even in the Porsche/Ferrari class) may require a bigger operation.

Building a prototype was a great achievement. I just wish I knew if it's going anywhere from there. I sent them an email and they never answered. Probably don't have an office staff to answer the volume of email.
