    I share your disappointment but the problem is lobbyists and money in politics. Add Texas, Arizona, Virginia and Colorado to the list where you cannot buy a Tesla. With more states likely to follow.

    The batteries used in the Tesla are 18650 batteries, The same found in 90% of laptops. Except there are just about 8000 of them. Many of us have them for higher end flashlights also. You can have a fault with a battery or how it is charged and discharged. The batteries are prob safer than the gasoline in your car. Remember every carfire does not make the news.

    Got back from Toledo yesterday, saw a Tesla S in Toledo and a McLaren F1 on the Ohio Turnpike.

    The Tesla was driven by a 75+ year old dude that should have been driving a walker

    The Mclaren went for 70mph to HOLY MOTHER OF GOD...in less than 3 seconds.

    I was going 74mph and the McLaren pulled up next to me and Im pretty sure he just punched it (didn't bother to down shift) and he was LITERALLY gone in 3 seconds.

    I have been around a lot of fast cars,(Jag's, porch, Maserati, Ferrari.. you name it) this was by-far the fastest thing I have seen in a awhile

    Hydrogen fuel cell is the future, not batteries.
    Is that the same Top Gear that said the Lexus was a piece of junk?
