Tesla DarkStar - An Electric with punch

I've had my 2004 BMW 330Ci now for a little over 2 years. I love it! It's a great car. This spring I just bought a 2006 Mazda 5 mini-van as well to tote around all the kids (we have 4 boys now). But ... This morning on my drive into work, I heard about a new car. One that I shouldn't really think about buying. But one that I really think would be a fantastic car to own: The Tesla Dark Star.

The Dark Star

It's made by a Silicon Valley start-up, lead by the guy that brought the world the Rocket eBook Reader... This thing is freakin' sweet! It does 0-60 in 4 seconds, and it effectively gets 135 MPG. Unbelievable.

It also costs $80,000. Maybe that's a bit much, especially for a family guy like me... But I was thinking... I was considering getting rid of the 3 series becuase it's a fuel hog. This would solve that problem, nice and proper.

They'll be shipping early 2007.

Maybe I'll ask Santa for one.

It is the cure for the oil addiction. I want one, but i dont live in the US. Does anyone know when they will start exporting the cheaper whitestar ?? to the rest of the world?

I hate paying though my ears for fuel and will buy en electric car as soon as possible.

Long live TESLA and the gm EV1 !
