Romney called Tesla a "loser" Tesla is posting profits, expects to pay back the loan 5 years ahead of schedule, and won Motor Trend's Car of the Year.
- Environmentalists: Donâ€™t like 10,000 barrels of crude oil running down the streets of your cul-de-sac? An electric car may be for you.
- Car fans: Sadly, the rumor that Tesla would be racing in Nascar was just an April Foolâ€™s joke, but its Roadster model has already won a four-car drag race against a Lotus Exige, a Porsche GT3, and a Porsche Carrera GT (video below). Surely the Nascar Dad demo can get behind that.
- Geeks: Teslaâ€™s Chairman and CEO is Elon Musk, who is also the founder of PayPal and the CEO and chief designer of the Space Exploration Technologies Corporation (SpaceX). In case thatâ€™s not enough geek cred for you, Musk is even fluent in the Geek dialect, telling the press after Mitt Romneyâ€™s â€śloserâ€ť comment and subsequent loss in the presidential election, â€śIn retrospect, he was right about the object of that statement, but not the subject.â€ť (Translation for those of you who do not speak awkwardese: â€śWhoâ€™s the loser now, motherfucker?â€ť)
- People who like awesome things: See, e.g., photo above, video of drag race below.
If they enforced bank regulations like they do park rules, we wouldn't be in this mess
