Urbee Hybrid is first 3d-printed car

From a variety of blogs and news sources, in this case ElectroVelocity.  The Urbee Hybrid is the first vehicle to be fabricated "entirely" using 3D printing technology. 

I am not sure what "entirely" means in this context -- the body panels?  the frame?  the complete motor and power system?  In any event, it's a pretty cool concept.

I can imagine this in the future : " Hey dad, Will you get me a car?"
"sure, go and print it."

Hmmmm....not the dadly conversation that comes to my mind...

"Hey, Dad, will you get me a car?

"Do you think sintering powder grows on trees? Get a job, son, and when you've earned enough to buy a tub of extruder, then you can print a car. Oh, and go get a haircut!"

If I drive this around town, and someone takes a picture of me, will Fox News 100 years from now think I'm a time traveler?

. IIRC, only the body panels are printed.
The Urbee Hybrid is the World’s First 3-D Printed Car
"... The entire body of this streamlined new gasoline/ethanol hybrid has been generated using 3-D printing technology. A collaborative design by Stratasys and Kor Ecologic, the Urbee is the first car ever to have its entire body printed using additive manufacturing processes. ..."

To me, "entire body" ought to include the frame, but then I'm a pedantic SOB....
.  I don't consider you to be pedantic. I little picky at times, but that's to be expected, nay, desired in a Physicist.
.  I sometimes wonder about the rest. heehee
