Tesla cars are starting to hit the streets. This is an early model I saw last year in California. Fully electric sports cars made in the USA.

Outside the Hiller Aviation Museum was an actual Tesla! This performance electric car is available for a mere $92,000! The price is about to go up to $98,000, so unless your daddy was given a fortune in big oil money, that you funneled into a carbon offset scam company, you probably won’t see one in your driveway anytime soon.

The Tesla Roadster

July 24, 2006

Now this is cool. Autoblog reports on the electric Telsa Roadster. The name itself is enormously cool. If you don’t know why, your knowledge of American technology history is lacking.

Last night Tesla Motors unveiled their uber-chic Roadster, a supercharged electric vehicle that looks, feels and drives like many other high-end sports cars. The main difference is the noise. Powered by a 3-phase, 4-pole AC induction motor, the Roadster can go 130 mph and does 0-60 in about 4 seconds, all completely silent.
