Looking for Tesla Automobiles

Yesterday while cruising around I happen to see 6 or 7 Tesla cars. Tesla is an electric car for the rich with a lot of government tax write offs (or incentives to buy) associated with it.

I did manage to get decent pictures of four of them. I also cruised through the Tesla Headquarters parking lot but so far I have managed to screw up the video editing 3 times and I am not sure I want to try again. If I do I will post it here.

So....... how many people have seen Tesla cars on the streets near your homes?









Also in my travels I passed a Google Self Driving Car. It says "self driving" on the right side of the rear bumper. There is a person in the driver's seat. I think he is there in case there is a computer crash, a real crash, or the car gets lost.

Knowingly seen none. However, just a day or two ago I saw a report which listed this vehicle as "the safest in history" or something like that according to consumer reports.

I've seen them around the bay area. Cool cars, but the fact that you have to charge an electric car for hours after depleting the battery is just not practical for any use other than around town commuting IMHO.

Another exciting video for your enjoyment!

And how uncool! No TW's in the motorcycle parking lot.

I don't know if I have ever seen one on the street - I pay more attention to bikes and trucks than cars.

I do know they opened a "showroom" inside a shopping mall in my area. They have 2 cars in it and twice that many salespeople.

Yeah - I saw that also. One of the reasons for the safety is that, since they don't have to fill the whole front end up with an engine, they can afford to have a large crumple zone up there.
