    I tried to start a thread about how well Teslas are selling but it never took off, Dawg, so if you don't mind I'll just paste it here:
    Tesla California sales beat Chrysler, Volvo, Cadillac, other big names

    Glad they stressed that the steering wheel can access pretty much all the options on the touchscreen, because while driving, the tactile feel of buttons and dials is necessary, imo.

    But if the Model S really is the car of the future, then why has Texas banned its sales in the state and why are lawmakers in several other states trying to do the same?
