    Argh. Tesla has established itself as a maker of premium electric cars with the Roadster, essentially a $110,000 Lotus Elise conversion.

    Thanks for posting. Always find the little tid bits interesting "its low stance and 21-inch wheels make it look smaller. Base models will have 19-incher wheels"

    Nice article. Balanced and as objective as one might be. And it was well written.

    A few factual inaccuracies and not much that was too new, but still interesting. It says the 19-inch wheel will be standard, not 21? Is this new or not?

    I hope this explains the ground clearance discrepancy of the 6 inches I measured versus the 4.5 inches in the FAQ.
