    Electric cars aren't for pussies anymore. You can have this one for $105,000.

    I wouldn't ever buy one of those, I'm not totally sold on electric, but that is pretty damn cool.

    The only problem is their cars are in the 6 figure range.

    Until they come up with their own model T it's still a pipe dream

    I wouldn't pay $105K for any car, but I think this is the future. At least I hope it is, so we can all collectively fuck OPEC in the ass.

    The base model is 71K, which is hefty, but things are changing fast.

    I am with you, but, I am glad they are pushing the R&D. This needs to happen so we can blow up the middle east.

    It'll blow us up b4 the ME. They can sell oil all day, everyday for 45 a barrel and turn a profit. We can't.

    Just as long as the oil companies don't fuck it up. I suspect the low gas prices have to do with curtailing public interests in stuff like this.

    Elon Musk might be the Edison of the 21st century. He's behind paypal, SpaceX, and Tesla.

    One of my best friends checked out of the business world with a very nice payday a few years ago and recently bought a Tesla. Not sure if it's the one in the video, but he paid just under 100 grand for it. He didn't buy it as a 'look at me" move, but rather because he hates the oil industry. He can go about 280 miles on a charge, and he says anything further he'll be flying anyway. He let me take it for a drive and I've never felt anything with that much power. It is just instant speed. If I had fuck you money, this is one of the first things I'd buy.

    Also, for the record, Elon Musk rules.
