The Tesla is faster than any Porsche in production, and twice as efficient as a Prius. Yum. And I'm not a car guy.

Dang, that's a nice-sounding car! Now, these kind of things really show what private enterprise can do when it has the right motives behind it - help mankind and still (with any luck) turn a profit. Elon Musk for president, for sure!

I suppose shooting yourself out of a cannon might be quicker too.
