Who sees a Tesla in their future?

Using Tesla's calculator http://www.teslamotors.com/financing and considering my driving habits (multiple vehicles, telecommute) gas would need to rise to over $60/gallon before it made any sense for me, and that's just for the operating costs.

@ $84,900 for the "performance" version -- no, I don't ever see a Tesla in my future.

Honda offers an electric Fit EV lease (only) for $389/month while GM offers the Volt for $329/mo plus $2999 (= $412).

If the cost were maybe half or one-third of that, it might be fun to have an electric Fit as a spare car.
