Carbon fibre electric supercar

I normally don't pay too much attention to ultra high end, independantly built cars. They have always seemed like expensive, impractical backyard built sports racers that don't hole their value. But I was reading Jalopnik this morning and came across the Mullen GT. It's not a car I'd ever even heard of, but it seems like they may have acheived the impossible. They've made an electric car that has performance equal to it's fossil fueled brother. Now that is exciting news. With 0-60 times in the 3 second range and a top speed of 180 mph, this is finally a beast that is also sorta socially acceptable. Could we see an electric car chasing the Audi diesels at Lemans soon? Could the famed 24 hour race become a legitimate showcase for alternative fueled vehicles? Let's hope so!
