    It's good to have goals. "We want to build the best car in the world" was said about the Model S. Did they achieve it? Some say yes, many say no. Does it matter whether they actually achieved it? No. Does it matter that they had that as the goal/target? Definitely. If you don't aim high, you definitely won't achieve it; if you do and fall a little short, that can still be pretty damn remarkable.

    Let's see when test results from the Rimac Concept_One start apperaring... I know they have delivered one car, but they did it in "secrecy" per request of the buyer... though I don't think you buy that kind of car to not show it off. So I guess we'll be hearing more soon. Now, if the Rimac is a "production car" or not we can argue, I think it's priced in the range of the Veyron though. Is the Veyron a production car? I know it is road legal at least.
