Is This the Tesla Model S?
Forget about the teaser that doesn't show anything. Commenter Jon Crain pointed us in the direction of a Road & Track article that shows a picture of what is supposed to be the Tesla Model S electric sedan. We think it looks great. Even better than the Roadster. Be warned, though. There's a chance that the final thing won't look like that (though it's not clear if this is total speculation or if R&T; got an embargoed photo for their December print edition).
Tesla says the Model S will get about 240 miles per charge [on lithium-ion batteries] while still offering "exceptional performance." Numbers being bandied about include 0–60 mph in less than 6 seconds. The Model S will have a base price of about $60,000 (versus the Roadster's $109,000 price tag).
