Tesla

With only 10 Tesla stores in the U.S., I was lucky to walk by the Boulder store on my way to a fancy shindig. I couldn't help but go in and get behind the wheel of these amazing electric cars. That's right, ELECTRIC.

With one charge, these babies can go up to 244 miles and do 0-60 in 3.9 seconds. Mind you, base price is $109,000 and just 53 have been sold in Colorado but MAN, these are sexy cars. Sitting in one is like being in a super-charged go-kart; all the controls are incredibly simple and it feels like you are two inches from the ground. I desperately want to drive one.

The Tesla's are not unlike the first televisions. In the beginning, they were outrageously priced and only the very wealthy could afford them. Now, there are 2.5 televisions in every American home.

Therefore, it's only a matter of time before it's MINE.

I like your reasoning. 2.5 Tesla's in every household...someday, I will have one, too, and will love it! Thanks for the reporting. Can't wait to get behind the wheel of one myself.

I also recently found out about a 42% tax break from the local at Federal government for purchasing an electric car. So, ultimately, the Tesla would cost you about $42K.
