Josh Davis of Wired (the lucky bastard) was the first journalist to strap in to the long-awaited, top-secret Tesla Roadster. There was supposed to be an embargo on press for another day or so, but Wired couldn't hold back and published a story and pictures a few hours ago. And man...is it worth a look!
If you don't know about Tesla motors, it's a car company backed by the likes of Google founders Larry Page and Sergey Brin as well as a former head of Ebay and a founder of PayPal. It's Silicon Valley's first car company and they aren't messing around. The Roadster hits 60 in 3 seconds and is powered by around 7,000 small Li-ion batteries.
So, yes, I want one. And apparently it's going to be 'comparatively cheap' when it hits markets. No word on the price. Anyhow, feast your eyes and check out the excellent article and see-through image at Wired. And keep your eyes open, a video and more pictures will be released at AutoBlog later tonight.
