Mullen Electric Mover

Mullen GT.
What goes from zero to 60 miles per hour (mph) in three
seconds, has a top speed of 180 mph, and never needs to stop
at a gas station? Meet the

Mullen GT electric car

. Now, don’t ask any questions about whether it makes
economic or even environmental sense to pay almost $125,000
for this car. If you do, you’re probably not going to buy
this because it doesn’t make much sense from those points of
view.

But then, tell me what sense does it make to spend money
to buy a Ferrari or any of the other super cars? People don’t
buy this class of car for those reasons.

Don’t get me wrong, if I had the money I would snap up the
latest Ferrari in less than three seconds. But I don’t have
that kind of money. So I have to weigh the cost versus the
benefits.

Truth be told, even if I did have the money, a super car
certainly wouldn’t be my every day car because it’s not very
practical. I mean, I’m too old for a two-door sports car and
I’m way past the point that I enjoy crawling under a car to
work on it. Then there’s the mileage, gas or otherwise. And
finally, the opportunity cost is so high that you can buy
several less costly vehicles for the price of one of
these.

That all said, if anyone wants to give me a Ferrari; my
email address is to the right.


Aloha!
