Elio Motors has more than 10,000 reservations for its proposed 68 MPG three-wheeler, and plans to start building them in 2015. Unless, you know, it doesn't


Financials Show that Elio Motors is Really, Definitely, Not Gonna Happen

Elio Motors’ next payment of three-million USD to Racer Trust – the “old GM” the property liquidation agent selling the old Shreveport GM plant to Elio – is due September 4th ... and Paul Elio is asking the people of Shreveport to pony up the funds.
