    The picture you see above is the car which will bridge racing’s past and future, and may be the most exciting thing to happen to motorsport in decades. This is the Green4U Panoz Racing GT-EV, an all-electric racecar intended to compete in next year’s Le Mans 24 Hour race, motorsport’s most grueling test of endurance.
