It's certainly the best looking of all the current electric cars. (Then again, when the competition includes the catfish-like Nissan Leaf, that's not really all that hard to accomplish.) I still will believe that the Model S will provide the performance and range Tesla touts it as having when I see it. They have a history of promising much more than they can deliver.
No green technology will ever make a substantive environmental impact until it is economically viable for most people to use it. This must be from a reduction in net cost of the new technology, not an increase in the cost of the old technology through taxation

(Note: the car sees 100% city driving and is EPA rated at 37 mpg city)
