Stephen Colbert on the Volt: "Will it get me laid?" GM: "I think so"

This is a great clip. I’ll let the guys do the talking, but although I’m sure GM’s point man Bob Lutz is in full spin mode here, it’s fun that he’s playing the game. Its off-the-line performance is “adequate,” a term well-known by carmakers as meaning “god-awful,” but like he says, that’s not the point. If you’re looking to lay rubber in this day and age (Top Gear hosts excepted), you’re more of a fossil than the fuel you’re burning. [via Jalopnik]
