• Tesla Photo Tour

    I saw several Teslas on the road a few weeks ago when I was down in the Bay Area, and I’ve read a fair amount about them, too. But I’d never seen one up close until this weekend.

    We were over in the Seattle area for the weekend, and came upon a Tesla “store” inside the Bellevue Square Mall. It was pretty crowded, no doubt thanks to the cherry red Tesla right in front. Everyone was gawking at it, so we had to join in. And a couple people were sitting in it.

    So we waited our turn and then got inside, too.

    W.H.O.A.

    Seriously beautiful. I’m not even sure what words to use to describe it, so how about just seeing the Tesla photos that I took? That should get the point across.

    I’ve read that Tesla’s usually run in the $80-90k range. One of the sales people said that this model, decked out as it was, cost about $110,000.

    O.U.C.H.

    But still … W.O.W. Stunning vehicle.

      Apparently Consumer Reports said it was the best car they had ever tested…

      Yep, I think the article is free for all to read, not just subscribers:
