Daily Kos :: News Community Action :biggrin: """It shreds the racetrack, makes little or no noise, drives hundreds of miles without a recharge, smooth as silk, roomy and comfortable, looks like pure sex, and you're saving the planet in the process. You have the option of a dedicated solar power source for recharging if you don't trust the grid, but even using the grid results in substantially less greenhouse gas emissions than if they were directly combusted in a car engine. Plus, if you buy this car, you'll be contributing to the evolution of the next generation car that will be available to the average person. In other words, if you are an upper-middle-class person, you are obligated to buy the Tesla Model S. It's not a statement, it's not a toy, it's your duty - pure and simple. You have no other choice. Lexus, Mercedes, BWM, Audi...these cars are no longer on the menu if you are not a complete douchebag. Everything you want and more is in the Model S, so the only reason not to buy it if you have the means would be if you were a mentally disturbed right-wing sociopath who likes the idea of global warming and resource wars. So if you have the money and looking to buy a car in this range, this is it - the only option at your disposal. And let no one call themselves a liberal or progressive who can afford it that fails to buy this car. Hell, chip in together to buy one if you can't afford one individually. Clean up the streets and sexify them at the same time."""
