I wonder if I can get a grant from Zero to put Lotus Elise engines in Teslas? I can already picture it now, dealers selling these gasoline powered Teslas- heck might as well call it an Elise. Just imagine... imagine..

Actually, the useful range of a gas Lotus is about the same as the Tesla. The Tesla runs out of battery charge and the Lotus needs a trip to the repair shop (usually with an electrical problem) after about the same number of miles.
