    One page highlight of the Model S (page 14). Mostly accurate but it uses old pics of the white Alpha. Compares the Sport with the BMW M5.

    Nice to see some accurate reporting -- the model discussed is the 300-mile version, and the price is listed at $77,400. Incorrect, though, to call the Model S the "fastest electric," which honor still goes to the Roadster.

    S with a top speed of 130 mph (vs 125 for Roadster) would indeed be the fastest EV. Roadster, though is quicker - but not as quick as White Zombie.

    Or Black Current. Which is even quicker, with a 9.51 second quarter mile at 135mph.

    But neither the White Zombie or the Black Current are production vehicles, so it's hardly a fair comparison.
