    Hmm, I thought I heard somewhere that Top Gear didn't want the Tesla on their show b/c it doesn't fit their show; this will be interesting. Since Tesla has the 1.5 drivetrain prototypes in the UK already there's a good chance that Top Gear will get to test a 1.5.

    BTW, congrats to dpeilow also!

    I thank you very much :biggrin:

    @ stopcrazypp: What I heard - and I'm not sure if this is 100% concrete yet - is that the car may be on Top Gear in the autumn/fall. I think they are coming round to the idea that a quick car doesn't have to have one type of fuel only.

    Very cool David. Congratulations. Of course now they'll have to demote Simon Rochefort for mentioning someone who posts on this site. :biggrin:

    So an appearance on the very next series of Top Gear. In the words of Mr Burns: "Excellent"

    They must be filming it round about now. I hope Tesla have been able to provide several cars to minimise breaks in filming for recharging.

    Who knows, it might even coincide with a Whitestar announcement. Solid news of the next (cheaper) model will do a great deal to clearly demonstrate Tesla's strategy to the terminally slow.

    No, they should promote him for recognizing the value this site and it's members provide for Tesla. :smile:

    Especially since a significant number of their customers (present & future) frequent this site, and post here.
