Rimac Automobili’s Concept One Electric Supercar — And The 23-Year-Old Behind It

Our friend from Croatia, Zach, has returned with a great write-up of 23-year-old automotive designer, Mate Rimac; his new car company, Rimac Automobili, based in Zagreb; and Rimac’s first vehicle, the Concept One electric supercar, which debuted earlier this year at the 2011 Frankfurt Auto Show.

2011 Nissan Leaf SL

You’ll never visit a gas station while driving an electric-powered Nissan Leaf. But if you don’t have somewhere to keep it plugged in when not in use, get ready to spend lots of time on Google Maps, carefully planning each trip.

The Best Cars For Coming Out

Coming out of the closet can be liberating, or terrifying. It can end up being a complete non-event, or the biggest change you’ll ever face. For most people, myself included, it was a combination of all of the above (and much more).
