Tesla - the new Green sports car!

Red, you say? You're colorblind??? Tesla just announced that they are going to be building their all-electric Roadster sports car that whizzes from 0 - 60 mph in 3.9 seconds right here in California. Arnold Schwarzenegger was really happy that Tesla could say "I am back" in California after working out attractive tax breaks! California is blazing the way!

Tesla also announced future $60K sedans and possibly cheaper cars for the masses down the road. That's when things get interesting for the environment. A real non-gas solution. Tesla also announced supplying lithium-ion batteries to Mercedes. Ironic timing - GM, behemoth of the auto industry just hit a multi-decade low today ($10) - here's a clear strategy forward for GM or Ford - acquire Tesla now!
