Tesla Roadster

I saw this beauty on 60 Minutes last night. Here is the wiki on it: The Tesla Roadster is a fully electric sports car. It is the first car produced by electric car firm Tesla Motors. The car can travel 244 mi (393 km) on a single charge of its lithium-ion battery pack and accelerate from 0-60 mph (97 km/h) in 3.9 seconds with the development transmission. The Roadster's efficiency, as of February 2008, is reported as 199 W·h/km (3.12 mi/kW·h), equivalent to 105 mpg–U.S. (2.24 L/100 km / 126.1 mpg–imp). For 2009 Tesla plans to deliver 1500 cars. The price for the 2009 models has been increased to US$109,000; options ranging from colors to audio to heavy duty cables can add another $10,000.


  1. I'm waiting for a Mr. Fusion powered car.

  2. Is that one of those ethanol cars Scott? You may need to go back to the future to find one :)

  3. Wow! What another $10,000 bones when you've already spent $109,000?!
