Electric Vehicle from General Electric

In just 24 hours I'll be receiving my 2012 Chevy Volt. While this would be one of the last cars on Earth I'd buy personally, I've accepted this vehicle as my company car. I've spent several hours in the Chevy Volt and already identified some shortcomings. A significant drawback is the limited driving range of the car on both electric and gasoline. The rear seat is also very uncomfortable for people taller than 6 foot. Road noise and engine sounds also detract from this vehicle's experience. As I get to know the car better, I'm inclined to write down my observations.

Since this car is my all purpose car (company and some personal use), I'll be looking around for my next "fun" car. Will it be a Porsche, another Mazda Miata, another Lexus SC430, or something else...
