Prius - an underrated performance machine

I dug-up this thread for some folks on another forum and thought that few would appreciate its thrust more than my Evo brethren. Brace yourselves:

I feel bad for the folks who stop reading after the first couple of pages. The fun really begins on page 3 and it's fully spooled by page 5.

Yeah, I read all 13 pages. Pure comedy...it was hard not to join just to jump in, especially when they started mentioning 4-cyl sedans, haha. Luckily, I resisted the urge, because when I got to page 13, I saw it had been locked.

Do you guys remember the Electric car in the mid 90's?, it looked like a Saturn.
Correct me if I'm wrong, but the 0 to 60 on that was 4sec.
