Finally, Tesla Motors can sell its eco-conscious customers something other than promises. The recently-opened Tesla Shop is now offering Tesla-branded shirts, hats, coffee mugs, key chains, luggage and wallets. Among the more interesting items: a "men's zero emissions tee" (won't sell many of those since there aren't many men who don't produce emissions), a $385 "angler's bag" (sounds fishy to me) and a $12 "desk mug" (darn – and I wanted a coffee mug). At least those who plunked down good money to get on (and stay on) a waiting list can dress the part while they're waiting– provided they pay. Might I suggest one more tee-shirt? It would have a pic of the Roadster with the words "What can be conceived can be created. In theory."

    Well, gotta show those investors some cash flow... Weren't the roadsters supposed to be in full production by now?

    The only problem I have is waiting until 2010 for delivery of my shirt, overpaying for it, only to have it replaced with better stitching a few months later.

    It seems that Adam Curry and John Dvorak are now auto critics too. On this weeks No Agenda Podcast they beat up the Tesla, talk about the EV-1 and Adam likes the Audi R8. But he isn't into cars anymore. Also, I found a video test ride and interview on the Tesla on Mahalo Daily Podcast. THe show is dated 11-5-07. Maybe that's why Jason ordered his!!

    You can get a discount on the the hat, shirt and mug combination, but you have to ask for the "Ed Begley Jr. Tuxedo" to get it.
