The Tesla Electric Car

The news reports I've seen about the Tesla electric car read just like advertising copy. Apparently reporters get within five feet of this car and the sheer testosterone-stimulating magnetism overwhelms them.
Do I sound jealous?
No, it's all right...I admit it. I am.
Here's what you probably should know before you fall hopelessly in love, like the rest of us did. It won't help one BIT, but I'll tell you anyway; )
Two weeks after Tesla started taking orders for the first 100 of these, they were sold out. Customers more or less paid for them up front, to be delivered by the end of the year (hopefully on time, but you know how that goes...).
Oh, yeah, and those lovestruck fools paid 100,000 dollars apiece for them, I should probably add. Up front, did I already say that? Now, to be fair, a hundred grand is not bad in the language of lust-mobile race cars. And she's not your Momma's race car, either...
...not when you can achieve 60mph in less than four seconds from a dead standstill.
(Mah GOODness, Momma's Lotus is still sitting back there at the stoplight.)
And just look at her! A car that looks like that should probably put something on, don't you think? At least a bikini.
Features? Oh, yes!
I read this on Tesla's blog:
What else? Precious has been safety-tested to within an inch of her life, and as lust-mobiles go, she's solid. The charging up process, the batteries, the (lovely, curvy, perfectly proportioned) body, all very safe. There are a couple of neat safety features on the charger-car interface, as in: it won't start or move while plugged in, and there's a smoke alarm with an automatic shutdown in case anything should - heaven forbid! - catch fire.
Forget carrying groceries, but who cares?
You know you want one.
If you've got a hundred grand to spare and that's not enough of a chick-magnet already, a brand new Tesla will make you smell like Cinnabon and look like Russell Crowe.
Or, check Ebay for a slightly used model.
