    Hey fellow Tesla lovers. I just produced this video that features the boss' blue Tesla 2 for one of my clients and thought you'd dig it...

    If you're looking to actually *see* an F430 in the video with the Tesla, you won't find it... Somewhat misleading thread title IMO

    Isn't it also a non-sport Roadster in the video? They flash the 3.7 second 0-60 time in the video too.

    That could be an honest mistake... the Roadster page of the Tesla website shows the 3.7 0-60mph without any kind of disclaimer that it is for the "Sport" model.

    Quicker, maybe. But certainly not faster. The Ferrari F430 has a top speed of 200 mph, the Roadster 125 mph.

    That's a very old review of one of the VPs with the locked two speed gearbox.

    Here's a video with a green Tesla in London scattered about the other super-cars:

    I thought politics was legalized lying.


    BYW It was amazing to watch the past few years as a politician could say one thing, and later say the opposite (nothing new there) but with the new technological twist of the instant internet to have their previous statement thrown up in their face -often on video- and have no conscience at all about lying. I mean what else could they do? It's not like they were ever going to stop lying...

    lemme cite the first chancellor of federal republic of Germany here, Konrad Adenauer. He was confronted with his own statement from a few days in advance, stating the opposite. His reply:
    "Ja wolln Sie mir denn verbieten, klüger zu werden?"

    Trying to translate: "You want to ban me from becoming smarter?

    As long as you can claim newer facts, any change of opinion can be presented.

    The problem is that they rarely admit that they changed their minds due to new information.

    Yes, I think we have to clearly separate lying and changing your mind. It seems we still heavily penalize politicians when they change their minds based on new information, even though there is nothing wrong with that.

    Yes, I'm talking about two faced statements. As in; at a rally in the woods they tell the treehuggers they will "save the forest" and then the next day they meet with the loggers/stripminers/housing developers they can do as they like.
