Default Tesla's sports car drives for a penny a mile

The Tesla Roadster can go from 0 to 60 miles per hour in four seconds. It tops out at 130mph.
The Tesla Roadster is an all-electric sports car. It costs $90,000 and doesn't come out until next year, but it cooks. The car and its technology were unveiled this week at a promotional event in Santa Monica, Calif.

And, if you don't have that kind of money, Triumph Daytona; Honda VFR will do 60 in about the same if not less.

But, your 4s... will retain hell a lot better in value.

My cheap thrill; get on the bikes 4 full twists of the throttle; up one gear at 12,000 rpm and keep the second at about 10,000 and you are there.

0-60 the electric drive can play the advantage of full torque all the time

just needs a better power source like fuel cell
