Ferrari President: No Electric Cars for Us

You won't see the prancing pony on an electric car:
For some in Washington, electric cars are all the rage when gas prices spike, but the president of Italian automaker Ferrari is no fan.

In an interview with technology website Engadget, Ferrari President Luca di Montezemolo said that his company would not join other companies like Chevrolet and Nissan because he does not believe all-electric cars are all they are often cracked up to be.

"You will never see a Ferrari electric because I don't believe in electric cars, because I don't think they represent an important step forward for pollution or CO2 or the environment," he said.
Couple that with yesterday's story about Costco taking out the electric car charging stations and whether you're going for big box discounts or big bucks hot rods, electric will not be the answer.
