Was looking at the magazine rack and was thinking about the Roadster’s pending appearance in ink. Late this month or next the usual gang of car rags get their ‘first looks” at a VP prototype that will blow away 98 percent of the cars that they have ever driven. I remain hopeful they will speak well of the car’s features and abilities but at the same time I am afeard of a negative review simply because among other things, the car does not sport a skin-shaking deafening exploded fuel-belching engine. Does “not shifting” take away the feeling of driving? Does regen make one loose the on edge feel of standard braking? Can hearing your seatmate at speed destroy the required torture of going fast? If they are smart they should jump on this newly powered contender bandwagon and separate themselves into two entities. They would come out with EV versions of their magazines like ‘’Electric Car and Driver”, “Road and Track for Evs”, and “E-Motor Trend”. Even if Evs hold a nitch market of like The Mac that is a big audience compared to “Curlers World Monthly”. With the Tesla Roadster’s high profile debut the other ongoing E sports cars have come into new light and of course Tesla’s visibility has already caused the launch of a dozen or so other high performance E cars as well. The revolution is beginning. As far as I know there are no print EV racing/sport/road magazines on the shelves. It will happen soon and I’m betting on at least one special magazine on Tesla when it comes out. These major Publishers have the power and distribution connections to make it happen quickly and they should before the get usurped by some little guy.
