Toyota Prius: The Official Car of That Guy Who Goes Ballistic When You Point Out Al Gore Has a Carbon Footprint 10 Times Bigger than the Average American. In a perfect world, I would've tried to balance out this car's obvious left-wing political statement by painting it in camouflage, as well as adding a gun rack and a "Mitt Romney For President" bumper sticker. With that not possible with GT6's customization options, I decided instead on the above, "Pee-us" theme. But onto the review proper and.... Well, there's no sugarcoating this week, this car is absolutely, completely, utterly horrible. The styling's horrid, the understeer is abhorrent, and the battery wears out so swiftly under race driving that you'll quickly find yourself at a massive power disadvantage against comparable conventional engine cars. Oh, and then there's the low rolling-resistance tires that sacrifice things that would make the car safer for normal people to drive such as lateral grip and braking distance at the altar of the MPG. In a lot of ways, the Prius is a mirror of the Sambabus from last week. Even now, as the Audi R18 and Porsche 919 battle for wins at Le Mans and the McLaren P1 and Ferrari LaFerrari battle for poster space on the walls of teenagers, as they prove that hybrid cars don't have to be dull and lame, there's still the Prius. There's still the car that tells everyone the owner's political beliefs before he can even begin to lecture them on the virtues of food that's "organic" and "gluten-free." This car's not just a Beater, it's the one car I would rather drop a piano on than sell to someone else if I was given one for free.
