    Filming Tesla - 2 | Revenge of the Electric Car

    Finishes with

    "Then the slide show came on and I got a sneak peak at a photo of ‘Model S’. OMG. I don’t usually think of sedans as sexy, but this car is Pure Sex. Gorgeous. I can’t say more or Elon might have to kill me, or worse, sue me. But if and when this thing ever happens I think Tesla will have trouble keeping them in stock : at any price point. My family of five might just have to be first in line."

    I hope the Model S lives up to this hype. My expectations are beginning to be very very high for this car.

    Yes, that hybrid talk caused me loosing faith in Tesla Motors.

    Well, VentureVehicles (aka Persu Mobility) also postponed EV model and announced they will deliver the hybrid first, with EV following in indefinite time later.

    Oh well ...

    Indeed.

    I, too, am waiting for the Venture One, er... Persu Hybrid - although it's photo is titled Persu Hero. It seems every vehicle I want has an identity crisis.

    But we digress.
