Best Viewed with IE or Opera. Sorry, Firefox works, but loses some sidebar layout,
'my profile' and other stuff... Anybody with a fix, please leave a comment. Many thanks in advance.

That said, if you must use Firefox (and I don't blame you, it's become my browser of choice, too)
...get the "IE Tab" extension. This allows you to view problem pages with the IE rendering engine. Very cool!

Meet the 200-mph Electric Car - By Christopher Palmeri

Lithium ion batteries and solar panels are the secret ingredients in Hybrid's LiX-75 pricey eco-sports-car
You want to do right by Planet Earth. You want to drive a car that's easy on the environment. But most electric vehicles look like glorified golf carts. And you'd have to look like Leonardo DiCaprio to get lucky in a Prius.
A fledging Las Vegas-based company called Hybrid Technologies thinks it has the solution. Hybrid will launch a car it calls LiX-75 at the New York Auto Show on Apr.14. The sleek, $125,000 sports car runs off of electric batteries, boosted by solar panels on the trunk. It recharges in four to six hours from a regular three-prong electric socket. And the company claims it will go from zero to 60 miles per hour in three seconds and hit a top speed of 200 miles per hour.
"It's the environmentalist mid-life crisis vehicle," says Richard Griffiths, head of business development at Hybrid. "It's a sports car that performs like a Porsche Boxster, looks like a Ferrari, and has zero emissions" (see BW Online, 10/25/06, "Porsche's Entry-Level Dream").
