Tesla in the Wild

Tesla Motors has a showroom in West LA where I drive past sometimes dreaming about how I could obtain one in this lifetime. However, until this week, I’ve never seen one in the wild.

I was driving on the 10 Fwy and I see a sports car coming fast on my left. I tried to figure out what it was and I wasn’t able to recognize it. I got my camera out and managed to get a few blurry shots of the Tesla in the wild.

To add insult to injury, it even had the car pool lane sticker on it.  Damn.


  1. Wow, I know it is based on the Lotus Elise, but to me it looks even better. Do you ever watch Top Gear on BBC? If not, you would definitely LOVE that show. It is available on iTunes if you don't get BBC America. They tested the Tesla on their track, and really, really liked it.

  2. Yeah, I noticed. Is the "captcha" thing (where you type the text from the picture) new? I don't remember it from before. Maybe that's the difference.
