This weeks Auto Week has an article on the Tesla electric sports car. They claim 0-60 in 4 sec with a top speed of 135mph and a range of 250 miles. One website I visited said it is built on a modified Lotus Elise platform, the cost will be $100,000 with an operating cost of 1 cent per mile. It looks like they have good financial backing...from Silicon Valley. If it takes off the price should come down.
