When? 2012? I'm trying to figure if I should order a model-S. I was kinda hoping that the volume of roadsters hitting the streets before the model-S would drive the appearance of charging stations. So far that isn't happening. There are many things in the way. The present roadster charges slowly, making charging stations along the highways not very useful. Hence, perhaps the slow-charging-roadster doesn't drive the installation of the charging stations that the model-S user would like to see. My theory is that faster charging will come to the roadster too, but the delay will have a serious impact on the development of the charging infrastructure. Of course this isn't the only problem delaying the charging infrastructure... Lack of standards (or equivalently too many standards), etc. I understand the 2-car thing well. My 2nd car is presently a Segway. I use the Segway for the 7 mile commute to work whenever its sunny and I don't need to take a side-trip during the day.
