Tesla Electric Roadster

Not exactly graphic design, but intelligent design.
Ever since my humble valet beginnings, I've been an unabashed car geek. Unfortunately this doesn't pair well with the closet tree-hugging tendencies. But those clever boys at Tesla have put their butt-rockin' days behind 'em and cooked up this green machine:

Take a look at their blog to see how they've done it. It involves a lithium ion strapped to a modified Elise chassis. They've managed 0-60 in under 4 seconds, 135MPH and 250 miles a charge. The 100k price-tag will no doubt drop in a year or two. Hopefully I'll be employed by then...
