Tesla Motors 100% electric sports car

Just picked up news on Tesla Motors from Robert Scoble’s site. The self-proclaimed Scobleizer took part in an impromptu road rally down Santa Monica against a Corvette. The news, of course, is that the Tesla is 100% electric and goes 0 to 60 in under 4 seconds. The gas savings might be obvious, but in case you’re wondering, the gas hog equivalent is 135mpg. The Tesla body is bonded aluminum extrusion and carbon fiber, so you can imagine what the other technologies are like. Bad news? The Tesla hits the street for $100,000, although a $50K version is in the works. Go to Scoble’s site to see the race video and test drive with Tesla CEO Elon Musk.
