- Environmentalists: Donât 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 Foolâs 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: Teslaâs 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 thatâs not enough geek cred for you, Musk is even fluent in the Geek dialect, telling the press after Mitt Romneyâs âloserâ comment and subsequent loss in the presidential election, âIn retrospect, he was right about the object of that statement, but not the subject.â (Translation for those of you who do not speak awkwardese: âWhoâs the loser now, motherfucker?â)
- 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
