I call bull****. Not only that, but "Most Americans" wouldn't want to front the cost of development to even make that happen.

Just like most Americans support tax increases, on people in a bracket other than their own.

Still legal in 16 states. It's happy. It's fun. It's Happy Fun Car.

I would like for the manufacturers to step up and build a 500hp 60 mpg vehicle. That would be great, but shoving down our throats and then making the consumers pay a gas guzzler tax because the auto makers don't have or are willing to use the technology is FN stupid.
