The first Tesla was a cool looking car. Even better, it was an all electric "power-house' sports car based on the stylings of Lotus. It got people excited for electric cars because it did more than just be efficient. However, it was way too expensive, not very practical and lacked a lot of the exciting tech that has been coming out through Toyota, Ford and others.
It's great to see that as they get closer to a production model of their follow up car, they seems to be improving everything in every way. It looks awesome, is sporty but practical, is much more affordable and looks promising as an awesome car. Check out more pics and details on the car over at jalopnik.com
