The economics of gas vs electricity are largely irrelevant at the $120k+ sportscar level.
However at $50k,$60k even $70k it is relevant because a $50k Model S is cheaper to own after 10 years than a car that costs half as much.
Even a $70k Model S is cheaper after 10 years than a car that cost much much less ( $45k midrange luxury car ).

My argument ( considering only fuel price and depreciation, but ignoring maintenance ) is here: Electric Car Costs | High Speed Charging
It was a guess based on a bunch of things:
1) Tesla believes they can make a 56kWhr Roadster pack for less than $12k by 2016.
2) Replacing a Model S battery after 8 years puts you in 2020, 4 more years of improvement past 2016.
3) Elon Musk claiming an 8% improvement in batteries per year.
4) LG Chem CEO saying cell costs will decline four fold over the next10 years in 2010

It's from Tesla offering the pre-paid battery replacement deal for $12k when you buy a Roadster.
If I had done that in 2009, the earliest I could collect the battery is 2016. Every year earlier they charge me an additional $2k, every year after they give back $1k.
I should have calculated some rate of return on Tesla holding the $12k for 7 years - but I think the rate is thin, and I think they have built in nice profit margin on the deal without that anyway - I could be wrong.
Sorry, but my OCD is showing... every time I look at these numbers, it is killing me that they are out of order. I know it is a minor point, but the numbers should be in the following order: S, then R, then P.

I will have to stop following this thread until that is corrected :wink:
