A 3D-printed supercar

www.divergent3d.comwww.divergent3d.comThe Divergent Blade, which was on display at the Consumer Electronics Show in January, weighs half as much as a Mini Cooper but accelerates to 60 mph faster than a Porsche 911 Turbo S. It can be assembled in under half an hour from 3D-printed metal parts—and building one generates just a third of the emissions that come from producing an electric vehicle, according to the manufacturers.

    No way an *entire* car is being 3D-printed. Probably just the shell. Which is neat in itself, but it would be nice if Reason worked a little harder on accuracy in their articles.

    (Just read a bunch of Robby BS, so I'm a little touchy about accuracy right now.)
