Tesla's new electric sports car could potentially be the car of the future.

I've been hearing great things about Tesla Motors new electric sportscar. Things like "It's fast", "goes 250 miles on a charge and only costs a penny a mile".

I learned about it from an electrical engineering friend of mine who is also big into energy conservation and recycling so I googled it tonight and found a video and some pics of this amazing new vehicle.

The car goes from zero to 60 in about 4ish seconds. That's quick for an all electric car. It's said to charge for 2 hours and get a whopping 250 miles out of one charge!

Top speed = 130 mph
Carbon fiber body
Satellite navigation
And more... This car is awesome

But that's not even the coolest part.

There will be no emissions, less moving parts to fix, no more stinky expensive gas, it's quiet and It will also have an option for solar panels. With the solar package it can generate more miles in electrticity than you use on your daily commute.

You have to watch this video of the Tesla Roadster in action to see how fast it is. You won't believe it. I thought it was amazing.
