The $2,500 Car

Found this from The New York Times. Click the diagram on the left if you don't want to read a whole article.

Anyway, is this a same company trying to buy Jag and Land Rover?

Yes it is the same company, this car they have been developing and building has been in the news quite a bit the last 12 months, lets see what how the safety and reliabilty tests come back, I have traded their stock in the past but buying their cars, I don't know...
