You could actually get "mode 7" effects on the Genesis there was just no hardware support for it so everything had to be done on the software side.
The Mega Drive/Genesis has no hardware-native feature comparable to Mode 7, though the Mega CD/Sega CD and 32X peripherals add such a feature. However, as in Tales of Phantasia and Star Ocean's sprite effect add-ins, some comparable technical feats were programmed entirely in software, seen in games such as Dick Vitale's "Awesome Baby" College Hoops and Zero Tolerance.

Kinda maybe. Tesla introduced the base model at $33,560, with the top of the line going for almost double that. The average per the link will be about $42k. You can get many gas powered vehicles for $33k +/- loaded with features. Still good job on Tesla for pushing into the future.
