Yes, tracking the changes is informative but does not change anything unless one changes their investment habits. Without money to invest, I have not
kept up with it either.
Not to derail the discussion from economics, but the 300 mpg is not really feasible unfortunately. It is a proof-of-concept. It would never pass
crash ratings and is too expensive to make because no major auto maker is set up for carbon fiber as a primary component on a large scale. It is also
ludicrously underpowered and slow, and impractically small for most peoples' taste.
I would still jump on it if I could, and I hope that this concept trickles down to something real even if it becomes diluted. Ultra light, CF,
streamlined, tiny diesel engine, turbo as well if I recall correctly and regenerative braking. But there are several cars in Europe and Asia that can
achieve 70+ mpg, far better than a Prius and they aren't even hybrids. The Lupo comes to mind. Most are not available in North America however.
