    There is no such car. That's just a wild claim by some 15 year old kid on a messageboard, most likely. How about you research vehicles that actually exist, such as the hybrids from Ford, Toyota, and Honda.

    I'd like to know how to squeeze any performance out of my 2005 Prius, say with some brand of a computer chip or whatever. Any suggestions? And then there's the "turbonator". And what about voiding the warrantee? thanks

    you can forget about getting any performance out of a prius, its designed for economy, so the internals are as lightweight as possible, any extra power and it wont be long before you snap a rod or something

    Chappy, not only are the internals lightweight, the "externals" are lightweight. While all hybrids have to meet crashworthiness criteria, they would require significant beefing up (= weight) to handle hundreds of extra horsepower and the extra kinetic energy imparted by higher-speed crashes.
