A Central Coast community is getting its first look this weekend at an experimental electric car built by college students.

The Prototype Vehicles Laboratory made up of more than 40 Cal Poly San Luis Obispo students is unveiling its solar-powered vehicle nicknamed “Dawn.” It’s designed to break the world speed record for a solar-powered car.
