YOUR NEXT CAR WILL BE A VOLT:

Driving Tesla's 'insane' Model S (Peter Valdes-Dapena, 2/23/15, Money)

Tesla wanted to add all-wheel-drive to its Model S to make it more appealing in northern states. But adding a separate electric motor to the front wheels had a strange side effect.

Namely, it gave the car 692 horsepower and the ability to go from zero to sixty in about 3.2 seconds.

That's supercar speed in a sedan that can seat up to seven people. That's right. With optional rear-facing third-row seats, two kids can sit facing backwards in the hatchback space and make faces at that guy in the Camaro you just blew past.
