The 3-D Printed Car Is Here!

It seems that one day in the not too distant future, you would go into a car dealer, specify a design and size it to your taste. You would then come back in a few days and pick up your car. In 2015, they plan to sell an electric version which will have only about 50 parts. It will be extruded out of a 3-D printer.
