The car that changed the world!

The Tesla Roadster was a paradigm shift; it was the car that changed the world! It said you could be sexy, you could be fast AND you could be electric! Sure, it wasn't a car for the masses with its 2-seat, low to the ground, sports car build and its cost, but it was a proof of concept that opened the door! I'd recommend you watch the movie "Revenge of the Electric Car" for more details.


wicked quick

I purchased this after driving Porsches for years. The acceleration of the car is mind blowing and after owning it for a bit I still break out and smile when gunning it. Tesla Service has also been very good, they take very good care of the cars and customers. I commute with the car about 40 miles a day and its range is great. Range anxiety is not a real issue.


The Future is Fun, Fast and Furious

The car is a blast to drive. You really feel one with the road the steering gives great road feel and the throttle is like nothing else you have ever driven. Everyone notices the car and being that it is greener than a Prius to drive it is easy on the environment.
