Tesla Model S: Please be here when I am ready for a new car

Tip o the hat to Yahoo! for the article and eye candy yesterday.  I have coveted the Model S since I first saw its design renderings.  I did some work at the old NUMMI plant in Fremont, CA where they are manufacturing the S and since my father spent 30 years working in a Chevrolet steel forge I have a soft spot for an American car.  Still, the big 3 have been turning out crap for so long only one of our two cars is domestic.  Chevy truck, Honda car.  It will be nice to replace the Honda with some locally manufactured wheels.

    So Peter I have to admit when you first mentioned the Tesla S to me last year I thought you were out of your mind. Then Tesla opened a “storefront” in a local mall and I got a look at it. Wow is all I can say. I’m thinking of getting one next year or the year after to replace my Audi A6, and I love my A6. They really delivered from what I can tell.

    I’m on the bleeding edge once in a while but the designs were never in question, just their ability to ship a production run. If they can do that, the cars will sell themselves.

    Dan Neil lost a bet over this one, it would seem. See Here.
