    Awesome. They got the details mostly right. This sight, James's blog and his company got a plug, and ScottFe got credit for his great photo. The article enthusiastically talks about the Sport and Tesla's efforts to deliver it in time. That's all around awesome.

    I guess they don't mention the photo isn't from the Wayland Invitational, but that's one of those details that might get cut for brevity.

    some issues with that gas comparison, which is unfortunate since even conservative values would show around an order of magnitude difference in cost of run, which is impressive enough. Also that the sport, whose 3.7 figure was quoted is a lot more than 109, which is base anyway. That's nitpicking though on what was a very good story. Far better than most. Actually saw one today that confused the model-s and roadster, saying the roadster was expected to be on the market in 2012...

    The reporter that interviewed me was new to electric vehicles. Knowing that, I would say he did a great job at getting the facts 99% correct.
