New Electric Car Out Accelerates Porsche 911 S and Ferrari 575 Maranello


**SNIP**

A new British-made vehicle that can out accelerate both the Porsche 911 S and the Ferrari 575 Maranello will be released at the end of this year. The 700bhp Lightning can do 0-60 in under 4 secs compared to the Porsche and Ferrari time of 4.1 sec.

The £150,000 car has a range of 250 miles, a 12-year battery life, a recharge time of 10 mins, and a top speed of 130 mph. Being electric, it is exempt from road tax. The manufacturer claims it is £10,000 per year cheaper to run than an Audi RS4.

According to Lightning Car Company technical director Arthur Wolstenholme the motor and battery technologies to make this car compete with high-performance petrol cars has only come into existence in the last five years.

The crisis of modern democracy is a profound one. Free elections, a free press and an independent judiciary mean little when the free market has reduced them to commodities available on sale to the highest bidder.

The era of manufacturing consent has given way to the era of manufacturing news. Soon media newsrooms will drop the pretense, and start hiring theater directors instead of journalists.

The structure of capitalism is flawed. The motor that powers it cannot but vastly increase the disparity between the poor and the rich globally and within countries as well. Parecon is a brave argument for replacing that flawed machine and offers a much needed -- more equitable, democratic, participatory -- alternative economic vision.

Dr. Hermann Oberth who pioneered rocket design for the German Reich during World War II and later advanced rocket technology for the American manned space launches, cryptically stated: "We cannot take the credit for our record advancement in certain scientific fields alone; we have been helped."

When asked by whom, he replied: "The people of other worlds."
