Beater Barn Find: GM EV1

A couple weeks ago I thought the SWP was the rarest Saturn I had ever encountered. If you count the sold and serviced by Saturn dealers GM EV1 as a genuine Saturn, then I stand corrected.

Conspiracy theorists believe GM crushed all the EV1s to keep awesome technology out of the hands of the motoring public. While many were crushed, a few were decommissioned and donated to institutions of higher learning. Some schools, like the Center for Creative Studies, put their's on display. Other schools let the Future Truck team rip off useful parts before placing the little car in cold storage.
So here this one sits, safe but all alone. While the existence of such a rare piece of automotive history raises many questions, I'm sworn to secrecy. What you need to know is that at least one is still out there, its far from being operational, and no you can't have it.
