Tesla Roadster Test Drive Photos - Milwaukee, WI July 24, 2010

Hi Everyone.

Tesla's Chicago dealership was at Discovery World in Milwaukee, Wisconsin on July 24, 2010. I wasn't able to get a reservation to actually GO for a test drive, but I did show up, talk to the sales people and folks that went for a test drive.

Here's a few photos.

For anyone who doesn't get that "inside joke".... There's a reason those look the same. Tesla is it's own car company, but they get the car bodies from Lotus.
