Props to Tesla for data capturing. If what they refute is true, the editor is just trying to make a bigger story out of a normal road test.

I have had the chance to drive the Tesla Lotus.
I hated it. It was like the car had it's engine sitting on the roof.
Turn too hard and too fast and wooooooh stand back as this baby start to get sick!
And don't push it too hard on a hot day in NJ traffic or the engine will over heat.
Over all I was not impressed.
Good idea? YES! Will they figure it out one day? YES!
Is that day today? Sadly no.

Tesla = garbage

Elon: "Broder in fact drove at speeds from 65 mph to 81 mph"

Such tragedy. The tester must have been out to lunch to want to keep up with traffic and use his heater.

Let battery tech catch up to Elons imagination of what he thinks his car is.

I was one of the early ones who out a deposit for Model S...I canceled order and got an M3 instead at that time.

I recently saw a Model S and I am glad I didnt buy one...not built well at all...the hinges and welds looked very cheap and interior materials felt cheap too.
