Hot Wheels

A team of vocational students at West Philadelphia High School have built what could be America's fastest environmentally friendly sports car. In "Eco-Coupe Fires Dreams," Akweli Parker of The Philadelphia Inquirer chronicles how these students, many of them struggling to stay in school, hope to race their car to the top of the prestigious Tour de Sol competition next month. Parker's deep reporting and sharp writing make this story read like the start of an exciting Hollywood script.
