I think this car is wicked! Maybe it's the setting, but it reminds me of the batmobile...

I have witnessed the Tesla roadster in action. Being a bit of a Nikola Tesla fan myself I already like it.

From a standing start it took off and got to nearly 40 MPH in 2 seconds while turning.

I really am surprised more people aren't checking it out. Hell even Jay Leno retracted some of his harsh criticisms (for a comedian) towards electric cars awhile ago. That first roadster with a maximum speed of 250 MPH must have really changed his mind. Too expensive, looks like I'd have to save up for a cheaper econo-citizen grade model.

Can't see how one of these things are bad.

There's a Tesla Dealership where I live, and there are quite a few of them driving around here.

However, your post has a blatant inaccuracy-- the car has a 250mi RANGE. Its top speed is ~125mph.

It's a great car, but it can't reach 250mph with a single gear, horrid aerodynamics, low power, and skinny tires. Nor is it quoted as going that fast, it's engine limited to 125mph or thereabouts.

Also, it cracks me up how the car comes with Yokohama R-Compound (aka track rubber) tires, but people drive the car in ~50degree weather. These tires Do Not Work at low temperatures, meaning that the car's ability to use the tires for braking, grip, and acceleration in cold/chilly weather is worse than the ability of a Prius to do the same. Cold race tires + panic braking = Very Bad Idea + Crash. Warm race tires + panic braking = Zomgz I see stars the car brakes so quick.

Cliffnotes: Tesla goes 250miles/charge, has max speed of ~125mph, and is a danger to others on the road in cold or chilly weather on the original tires.

Add autonomy to the list (I regularly do 400mi in winter conditions with temperatures that can reach -30 C )...anyway, regardless of price, that thing would be bad (and I think I'd miss the engine noise lol). Pretty happy with the current car (BMW 3 series): great road handling, good performance, not too flashy, fun to drive, and practical.

As for a 'dream car", I've never really given it the thought. Perhaps some well maintained Italian vintage car from the 1960s...but it would be of no use...so not a dream car, really.

Any car that is:

a. paid off

b. looks relatively cool

c. allows me to play Kamelot, Skillet, Eagles, Beatles, Ravel, Beethoven, and Josquin DesPrez with equally excellent sound at appropriate levels (read, I want to play my rock REALLY loud, and when I sing with DesPrez I want to feel like I'm smack dab in the middle of a 100-person choir)

d. large enough and comfortable enough for ample tushy

e. has lots of bells and whistles (read, playing with buttons is Fun)

f. is automatic because me knee is crap, even though manual is Way More Cool

g. Is insurable at a cost that is not blatantly obscene,

would be just fine by me.

From what she said I figure she meant to quote me anyway, but the text was switched.

But lawyers can make it false if you want.

Don't forget, that in very warm climates(like say HERE IN AZ) the summer heat kills batteries.

As for the race tires thing. I had a friend who refused to wear seatbelts. I convinced him to use seatbelts in my car. GOOD brakes + sticky tires=faceprint on windshield.

where do i begin with this thread?? i've had a love affair going on with cars ever since i got started playing Forza 2 on my 360 (and before that, i still liked cars a lot).

as for giving you any one car that tops my list, forget about it. there's been way too many great cars over the years for me to pick just one. if i did have to choose a Top Ten however....

1965 Shelby Cobra 427 S/C
1969 Chevrolet Camaro Z28
1970 Dodge Challenger R/T (w/ 426 Hemi engine)
1970 Plymouth Superbird
1974 Porche 911 Carrera RS
2012 Ford Mustang Boss 302 Laguna Seca Edition
2010 Ferrari 458 Italia
2010 Cadillac CTS-V (saloon)
2009 Lamborghini Gallardo Balboni (LP550-2)
2007 Porche 911 GT3 RS

Hopefully the model doesn't go on hiatus. By the time I buy another car I'd really like to see radar, ladar, and one of those awesome coolant thermos bottles (Like the Prius has) make it down to the mid-range models.

If not I'll probably just buy a diesel Rav, I'm easy to please.
