Tesla Birth Watch 46: AutoblogGreen Hearts Roadster, Bathroom
OK, let's start with this: we're not jealous that Tesla tossed the keys to a prototype Roadster to AutoblogGreen scribe Sebastian Blanco during his recent visit to Tesla's new LA dealership. We're furious. Lest we forget (and we don't), Tesla Spokesmouth Darrel Siry promised TTAC a drive back when they didn't have any cars– I mean "prototypes." And then DS
wimped-out rescinded his offer. Yet this fanboy gets an unsupervised spin just by showing up? We challenge Tesla to face the music, to lend TTAC a Roadster so that we can arrange independent testing of the two critical variables– which still remain unverified– range and recharge time. Meanwhile, Blanco liked Tesla's two "wonderfully decorated bathrooms" and the car is "simply too much fun to drive." Oh, and "During our drive, we happened upon an electric vehicle charging station and stopped for a little photo shoot. Sure, the connectors are all wrong, but for our pictures little details like that didn't matter." Tesla and AutoblogGreen; a match made in Heaven.
