    Just heard segment about Tesla Motors on NPR's All Things Considered. They must have recorded it a while ago because it included Jeremy describing the car.

    Most likely it will be available online shortly.

    Here it is online:

    Electric Car Manufacturer Hopes To Generate Sales : NPR

    This says 70 roadsters have been delivered so far, another number I have heard was 80. So it is still a fairly slow pace. They probably need to figure out a faster assembly process so they can hit 30 per week, which would a better pace given the number of orders.
