I’ve grown accustomed to the massive amount of torque of the EV’s electric motor, which which makes the car accelerate exceptionally smoothly!

Gotta love this company! Totally love this car!

This month, Xm satellite radio has been running a special Billy Joel channel. That guy wrote and performed some absolutely amazing music! But I want to update the lyrics to one of his last century songs: Traded in his Lexus for a Te-sa-la-la-la-la-la-la; You oughta know by now.” Yes, we picked up the Tesla Model […]
