I’ve got my fingers crossed for Tesla’s success too. I drove one recently in the hands-off navigation mode in heavy traffic on a winding twisting highway interchange on an overcast day. Scary as hell. I think I held my breath.
Those cars are like maintenance free except if the batteries ever need replaced. The electric motors decelerate a Tesla real quick so breaks get little use. Wild quiet ride. Talk about torque. And acceleration is like 0-65 in < 4 seconds.
If they can ever get the batteries perfected it should be great. Right now Tesla bleeds money. They say the plant is a high tech sweat shop with workers pushed to the point of passing out. Bring on the robots I guess.
ChesneyChrist: On the contrary imperialist whites are precisely the people to conquer the stars. The battle hardened last man of diversity, if anybody was developed to leave the human race behind it is them.
