    Guess they wanted a little love and were lashing out before.

    They are just lame.
    Trying to make light of the fact that they suck and are complete BS. Really only a joke article?
    No positive words for Tesla yet?
    and a pertty stoopid alphabetkal article at that
    just pointless really. Jalopnik is a no read from now on.


    We did crap like that in kindergarten

    I especially liked the commenter who informed us that a Model G (gas-powered) was redundant, because as hybrids, all the Tesla vehicles already use gas.

    ... I just want to reach out and pat him on his little pointy head.

    Funny or not, merely suggesting that Tesla will deliver anything beyond the Model S -- i.e. survive the challenge of 2012 and 2013 -- is a significant shift in Jalopnik's perspective on the company's viability.

    Model O: "Octopus in trunk." Really? The article is obviously a joke, but it's a pretty lame one that someone probably spent all of ten minutes thinking up. Certainly, they could have thought of something better than "Octopus in trunk" for the letter O.

    How about open-wheel. Or Origami. Or ocelot (a spotted car, the way some of the promotional Xebras had Zebra stripes.)

    Stupid article. Stupid mag. Waste of time.
