I'm on business in Seattle and walked into the Tesla showroom today to take a look. I've got a Model S reservation and just wanted to see what was going on. After talking with the two sales folks in the showroom, they offered a ride in the Roadster. I was giddy. I was prepared for the acceleration and the Tesla grin. Or I thought I was. I had clearly underestimated things. Ho-ly S**t that thing's got torque.
