I have a theory: Cops like to drive badass cars because it makes them feel badass. When NYC puts 40 of these Altima Hybrids on the streets, do you think the testosterone level will a) go up? or b) go up? The correct answer is: go up. Even if females are driving.
No matter how much sense it makes for the Altima Hybrid to be the heart of the NYC police car squad, it will never happen. Cops will find a reason why they need those Dodge Chargers that go 165 mph, and get 12 miles per gallon.
