So, I'm bored (waiting for Liz to finish her shower so that we can make fondue), and I start looking at cars (specifically the Toyota MR2 Spyder – midlife crisis mobile), and I find:

Toyota's future vehicles site.

It has: Alessandro Volta Hybrid Supercar 0-60 in 4 seconds, while getting 435 miles out of a 13.7 gallon tank (31.75mpg)!

CS \amp S 4wd hybrid sports car. Looks like a batmobile. I'd love to see a production version of this with a power hardtop.

They also have a little ditty on the Hybrid Highlander. It will be a Super Ultra Low Emissions vehicle (SULEV), offers 7 passenger seating (I'll just go for the 5 seater), sub 6 second 0-60, and just looks super-cool. My next vehicle, probably.

Anyway, thought I would share.

Oh, and our cats are “Jay and Silent Bob” – Mikey is skinny and noisy, and Arthur is fat and quit.
