    I dont think this has been posted yet, but CNET has coverage of the Frankfurt Auto Show, in which among many others, there is some footage of the upcoming Plug In Prius. For those who are interested in the latest car tech, VW came up with a car that according to CNET "makes the Prius look like a pig," while BMW combined turbodiesel and hybrid technology (3 electric motors, mind you) in a single car. Comment below, PriusChat folk!

    I LOLed at the comment regarding VW L1 Concept, "Finally, a car that makes the Prius look like a pig!"

    When it's not a concept and in production at more than 100,000 units per year, then we'll talk.

    Even if it goes into production....isnt it a bit too weird having your passenger ride behind you rather than next to you? It almost feels like a jet's cockpit. lol

    I made a license plate frame for my Prius that says: FUTURE CAR NOW.
