0-60 MPH Electric vs. Porsche Carrera

I was watching the "Futurecar" channel last night and they were airing the story of the electric car called the TZero and talking about how quick out of the gate it was.

Pretty impressive times and mileage, just thought it was so strange to see it take off and you heard nothing . . . no VAROOOM

TZero 0-60 in 4.1

Carrera 0-60 in 5.1

Awesome! But.... uhh... what happens if an 89 civic hatchback runs into me... let alone a normal sized car.

There is an electric motorcycle that runs in the mid 8s at the drag strip. The video is on Youtube.

The sound is amazing. No sound at idle as there is no idle.

Then, a whine that sounds like a F1 Ferrari.

Then tire smoke and it is gone.

Amazing.
