Electric cars are slowly but surely becoming more of a thing. But the problem is that carmakers are basing most of them on small economy cars. What gas car would make a great electric car?

Here's my idea: An electric Corvette.

Ok, I assume you've now completed cursing my name and putting a hex on me, but I think that it would be a great platform. The Corvette is solid and already pretty lightweight. It already is tuned for an engine with a lot of torque, it's great to look at, and it's fun to drive.

It could make a really great electric sports car.

What do you think?
