    At least one is around here: A beautiful new Tesla automobile, which model, I don't know; that is revealed nowhere on the car. Plugged into a "fill-up" at the Edgewater garage yesterday, I took pause to look it over and marveled at the quality of it's finish! It reflects it's surroundings as well as a mirror! About the quality of it's "guts', I cannot comment. It is said, however, to rival a Corvette in it's zero to sixty mile-an-hour time, a feat which it accomplishes silently, I would guess.

    I wonder if they offer test-drives? Frank

    I failed to notice, but given the absence of a front license plate, it is likely an Arizona-registered vehicle. Most states have front plates, as well.

    It IS beautiful, and I am totally impressed with the Tesla model vehicles.

    Surprisingly, the side/rear view reminds me of an older (1977?) Buick Skyhawk that I used to have, similar to the one in this picture.
    Someone had put a 350 engine in it, and that little car could really FLY !

    Yes, of course it could! But it polluted the air; the Tesla does not. Each has advantages and disadvantages, but performance-wise, the Tesla beats it hands-down, regarding acceleration, braking, safety, virtually all the things needed for consideration.

    Also costs a dang-sight more, but wait: maybe not. Classic antique cars, 25+ years old sell for beau-ceau bucks.

    Or, however you spell it!

    It looks like "Model 3", prices starting at $49,000.
