Yellow EV Roadster in SF Bay Area (AC Propulsion TZero)

Guys, I'm looking for info about a home made yellow electric roadster in the Bay Area, and am hoping one of you knows what it is. I saw it on a tv program last year about EVs that featured this car and the Tesla, but can't recall its name, and can't find it on the EVAlbum. Can any of you help me?

Thanks! Stan

Thanks WaxyChicken. I don't recall that scene from the program I saw, but it certainly highlights the technology's capabilities. Now I'm really more interested in the shape of the car. With a transplanted Metro or other very small ICE one of these could be a real mileage champ.

Gee. As soon as I saw 'bay area' and 'yellow'; the first thing to come to mind were those little yellow 3-wheel GoCars they rent in San Francisco. Not even close since those have 49 cc 2-stroke engines. That 3-wheel madness is addictive, I tell ya!!!

Thanks! I found many 3 wheel Electrathon EVs, and a clip about the Buckeye Bullet - worlds fastest EV @ 300mph + (321.+mph actually):

Terrific cure for crummy weather for me!
