Does the headline suggest that Tesla Roadster production has caught up with demand? And that Tesla is joining the ranks of other automobile makers, in offering leases? Looks that way.

But before you head down to your nearest Tesla store, better read the fine print and get out your calculator. Or we could just do it for you: Including a $12,453 down payment at signing, total cost for the three years amount to $70,483. And that doesn’t include a 25 cent per mile charge for mileage in excess of 30k miles. If you drive 16k miles per year, more typical for Silicon Valley, throw in an additional $4,500. And after three years, you pay a $350 fee or purchase it, at an undisclosed price.  Here’s the balm: Tesla says “fuel costs cost savings compared to a similar gas powered car could be $131 per month”.
