This is your "Heads-up!".. ZAP doesn't create anything but press releases.
Nice looking motor though. I wonder who designed it.. 'cause it sure wasn't ZAP!
Buy low, sell high Mr. Knight.

Over time, they come out with revisions to the models, mainly fixes to equipment or design (first models had the power controller getting wet in the rain due to a design flaw or the DC-DC converters wouldn't not last long due to poor quality, etc)
The new vehicles, not sure on the design team as I haven't had the chance to really look at their background, but being a stock holder gives me the right to demand such information, might have to exercise that one again soon.
I did my best to polish that turd, but there just wasn't enough ZAP turd polish to make it right

What's funny is it's by far the closest thing to a mass-produced electric car that we have. I'm waiting for a decent electric car or series hybrid that's available for a reasonable price, but I expect to be waiting for quite a while. Even significantly simpler motorcycles/scooters are very rare. People like to claim they're developing vehicles 500% better than anything out now (like the VentureOne), and of course they are vaporware.
Even with Lotus handling chassis, frame, and final assembly for the Tesla and maybe ZAP and others, production would have to remain low because they don't even produce many normal cars. They have only the Elise and Exige, expensive sports cars, and expensive sports cars are not sold in large quantities.
