GM's hoping a lower-priced Chevy Volt will save the plug-in hybrid from early extinction.
If there's an award for cramming stupid amounts of power into tiny cars, Toyota's driving away with it this year.
Kepler Motors, founded by world speed record holder Russ Wicks, unveiled its MOTION supercar at the Dubai International Motor Show three years ago.
