    There are some really awesome cars in there. And then there's the Pontiac Trans Am, LOL.
    This was an awesome list though, and the Model S definitely deserved to be in there. Kudos to R&T team again.

    The Roadster should have been on that list...

    +1.

    You can argue about the practicality of the Roadster, in that it's a two seater with a small trunk. And Tesla didn't build it from scratch... but their statement is marginally accurate IMHO. Despite being positive.

    From the article: "Beautiful, fast, and the first practical EV from a company that hadn't built a car, ever. Only amazing when you stop and think about it. Which you should."

    If they had just added the words "from the ground up" to that statement.

    That said, I think it's great that the Model S made the list and was placed at the end of the article, as it represents the future of the automobile, a future which is here now. I marvel at my S every time I get into it

    the 2J is a pretty neat car, never seen that one before. Imagine what and EV supercar w/ electric motor suction could do...

    My split window looks just like that one in the article (except that the picture is not of a 63!:mad:)
