Carbon Motors' super copcar, which raised a town's hopes, goes on the auction block

Nov 14, 2013 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: The Indianapolis Star

No matter what it sells for, it will always be the $7 million car. Crowds ooh'ed and ah'ed when the vehicle was unveiled, but today the high-tech police car prototype that Carbon Motors used to woo investors -- including government officials who awarded the company $7 million in public grants -- is all the bankrupt startup has left.

They should donate it to the Connersville Historical Museum to go along with the other cars that were built in Connersville, we paid for it many times over.

Good idea, and attach a sign- "Carbon Motors Con Car!"

They want to auction the car to help pay back their private creditors. They need to pay back C-ville but C-ville isn't included in the creditors.
