It is quite attractive but unlike with the other roadster that I saw that is really oozing with awesomeness. Anyway, I wonder if what’s the engine specification of this? Is it good enough on it?

i think this car would be great for geeks! i can’t really appreciate the design of
Tesla (sorry). And just like from what i have said before i don’t think that electric cars are possible!

like lotus evora

Wish there was a picture that shows what it looks like directly from the front.

Tesla is back power to the people. Li batteries are the only real viable power source right now, although fuel cells are close.
