    Hi folks, my name is Mike Boxwell. I live in the UK and I've been a forum member for quite a while... only I've never posted anything.

    I've seen a few Tesla's here in the UK and they certainly look and sound fantastic. Is there anywhere online where I can read about the history of Tesla?

    Hi Mike,

    welcome to the site. Here's something to get you started:

    Tesla Motors - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Another great resource is a countryman of yours, and a member of this forum. His name is Malcolm Wilson. He has some good powerpoint presentations of Tesla's early history. Wait a sec, here it is:

    http://www.teslamotorsclub.com/tesla-motors/2577-tesla-motors-early-years.html

    Also, you may want to do a search for a pdf file called "The 21st Century Electric Car" which explains some of the rationale behind starting TM.

    Knock yourself out!

    That is actually quite impressive. You have been a registered member of the forum since December 2007 and that was your first post. I cannot keep my mouth shut for more than an hour.
