    Just wanted to let everyone know that my Model S (and its handsome driver :wink:) were the subject of a small article in our local newspaper this morning. Overall, a very EV-positive article with no spin. A nice change from some of the larger news outlets. Enjoy!

    "Sports car!"

    "No, luxury sedan!"

    "No, 4 door family sedan!"

    "Tastes great!"

    "Less filling!"

    Overall good article! I especially like that the Model S takes even less than 3 days to fully charge!

    "Takes even less time to charge from a stove or dryer outlet." LOL! People have NO idea how much energy they use in their gas powered vehicles. I find folks expressing concerns about their electric bills, so I assure them that a complete fill up is comparable in price to a couple of gallons of gas, kind of like getting gas for your lawn mower. Meanwhile, your gasoline bill disappears!

    Nice article, Mayhemm.

    "When Harrower starts the car, it produces only a mild whine from the turbine in the rear." The writer believes turbines are the future, I guess? :biggrin:

    Yeah. I mentioned to him that this wasn't quite accurate.

    I imagined people reading it and thinking I was driving the Batmobile or something.

    Well, you kinda are. Wasn't the batmobile's sound based on the Roadster?

    Cool article, but not exactly factually on-point. Although very fast and high-performance, don't know if I'd call the Model S a "sports car" and I'd hardly call 245-width tires "skinny." :smile: Also, wasn't aware there was a "turbine in the rear." Other than that, good read. Thanks for sharing.
