Meh... This car isn't even out yet and I'm already sick of it. It's like the new Camaro, and how its concept was around for what felt like a decade before it actually came out.

$150k for a 3 cylinder is nuts. The tesla doesn't cost anywhere near that and it's a full EV, which makes the i8's ~70 mpg irrelevant. The i8 seems like a compromise that brings the worst of all worlds together: high price, low power, and it STILL needs gas.

Driving dynamics you say? The jury is still out, but I wouldn't count on this feeling like a sports car, let alone a sports car from this price range. Expect engine noise from the speakers.

Oh, and it's ugly.
