The new Tesla roadster is as cool as you can get in a totally silent electric car. Aside from looking incredibly sexy even standing still, Autoblog posts that it does 0-60 in about 4 seconds. I'm all for environmentally green cars, but most are real dogs. This is sporty enough that I could really go for it. It even does about 250 miles on a "tank", a bit less than my MINI Cooper but still respectable.
There is always a drawback, and this one is the price. At $80-120K, this is a real niche market car. Maybe in a few years the technology will trickle down into the $20-$30K cars that are a bit more realistic for most people.
