I would have to buy new tires with every oil change.

IF... you drive this car at the track regularly.. at anything approaching 1.6g side load spec.. It will be lucky to get 500 miles on a set of tires. The oil will still last 3,000-7,000 miles. And the tires will cost more than $500 each.

Oil changes? are still likely to cost more than $1000 each time (5-60w, premium stuff ~$280/quart last time I checked)

so.. tires are the bigger expense (if you drive the car hard).

I know .. on my sports car (modified).. 2,000 miles of life is doing good.

This car is for the guy that doesn't want to be bothered to pick up a $500 bill laying on the sidewalk.

Still .... there are worst ways to spend money!

You're definitely right, Thinking_J. Of course, anyone who buys a $1.46 million car can probably afford a few extra sets of tires.

Stanford University researchers have found a way to realize what’s been called the “Holy Grail” of battery-design research -- designing a pure lithium anode for lithium-based batteries. The design has great potential to provide unprecedented efficiency and performance in lithium-based batteries that could substantially drive down the cost of electric vehicles and solve the charging problems associated with smartphones.

Robots (or androids or cyborgs) are fully mainstream in the 2000s.
