Description: Tesla Motors has done something remarkable. They have made an electric car that people will actually want to buy. There is no doubt that the Tesla is a beautiful car, but for you speed fiends it has the stats you want: 0 mph to 60 mph in 4 seconds and a top speed of 130mph. Admittedly, the car is on the slow side, but the acceleration is amazing and almost imperceptable because there are no gears. Oh, did I mention that the equivalent gas mileage is 135 miles per gallon? You will spend about a penny a mile to drive this car. Also, since there are much fewer moving parts, in theory, your maintenance cost will go way down (we’ll see). I haven’t done the math yet, but this car might end up being a bargain at nearly $100,000.
