    We just received our advertiser copies of the May '09 Car and Driver.

    This issue has a road test of the Tesla Roadster by Aaron Robinson.

    "The Highs
    Drives like a slot car; open top fun, nearly silent, women in Birkenstocks dig it.

    The Lows
    High price, no promises that the company will be around next year, limited range.

    The Verdict
    A small carbon footprint in carbon fiber."

    The last paragraph of body copy reads, "Any adult would scamper away in fear, but there's no telling what your inner child might do."

    Also, in mid-article, "Once you experience direct drive, you'll never want to go back."
