This isn't an electric Porsche, it is a replacement battery for the large 35 pound lead acid battery that comes in about every car.  The Lithium Ion replacement isn't cheap at $1,700, but it weighs in at only 13 pounds.  And besides, you drive a Porsche...

If you want an affordable hybrid, you have the choice between the Toyota Prius or the Honda Insight.  If money is no object, then you will probably go for the Tesla Roadster. If you want a hot hybrid but don't want to shell out the big bucks, the wait is almost over. Premiering...

The entry-level 2010 Ford Fusion is powered by a brand new 2.5-litre Duratec four-cylinder matched to a fuel-efficient six-speed automatic transmission. It should sell for about $22,000 and is due in the spring.
