    [Updated: Tesla's official edited video of the event added above. Raw vids still available below.] Perhaps the worst kept secret for the past week, the Tesla Model S picked up Motor Trend magazine's prestigious Car of the Year award for 2013. This is the first time in 64 year history of the award that a vehicle has won that doesn't run on gasoline.

    At an event in Manhattan, where guests included members of the media and some invited Tesla customers, Tesla Motors CEO Elon Musk accepted the award on behalf of all Tesla employees. Musk commented, "I really think [someday in the future] we'll be able to look back and say this is a point at which the gears of history moved and this is going to be [seen as] an important day."

    Video from the event was streamed around the country to Tesla employees, but TMC members were also fortunate to get a live feed from other members that attended the party. Check out the raw video below (things start about the 8 minute mark):

    Feel free to comment below. We are also discussing the award in the forums here (Motor Trend Car of the Year 2013) and the Manhattan event here (Special Event with Elon in NYC on Nov 12?).

    Awesome. Let's see what this does for sales, stock and those who disbelieve in the future of this incredible innovation.
