Today on Green Car Reports, it's how to sell cars, and how to build them. The online configurator for the Porsche 918 Spyder hybrid supercar is live, and Toyota is launching a new, narrowly-focused ad campaign for the RAV4 EV.

Meanwhile, the Chevrolet Volt's development process is the subject of a new academic paper. Also: Ford's new 30 mpg (highway) police car, and why your dashboard's mpg readout may be lying to you. All this and more on Green Car Reports.

An academic study covering the Chevy Volt's development process has been published. Sounds like ideal beach reading.

Ford says its new police car will get 30 mpg highway, but it's not pursuit-rated.

Your mileage may vary, and your dashboard readings might too.

You can now go online and configure a Porsche 918 supercar: Even if you can't afford it, no one said you can't dream.

Toyota is narrowing the focus of its RAV4 EV ads to reach buyers who might be more interested in the all-electric crossover.

Finally, the 2014 Jeep Cherokee has been delayed a third time due to transmission problems. Looks like Jeep is having trouble getting things in gear (pun intended).
