Tesla Model S Signature starts at $105k
As if successfully completing the
first commercial mission to the International Space Station
and back wasn't enough, Elon Musk is also finding quite a bit of success with his electric venture: Tesla Motors.
is reporting today that the Model S Signature Performance, the top-of-the-line trim level, is already sold out and Tesla Motors is no longer accepting pre-orders. Customers now wanting to purchase the Model S Signature Performance will have to be put on a waiting list.
Interestingly, the standard model is still available for pre-order and has a base price of "only"
$57,400 before a $7,500 federal tax credit
(President Obama wants to see that federal tax credit
increased to $10,000
). The Signature Performance, however, has a base price of $105,400.
The standard Model S comes with a 40 kWh lithium-ion battery pack (8-year, 100,000-mile warranty), can hit 60 mph in 6.5 seconds and has a top speed of 110 mph. Range is listed at 160 miles.

The Signature Performance ups the ante with an 85 kWh lithium-ion battery pack (8-year, unlimited miles warranty). As its name implies, performance improves greatly with 0-60 times dropping to 4.4 seconds while the top speed increases to 130 mph. The maximum driving range of the Signature Performance is listed at 300 miles.
The first deliveries of the Model S Signature Performance
will begin on June 22
. Those who have ponied up for the standard Model S will receive their vehicles later this fall. Those who haven't already pre-ordered the standard Model S still have time to get in line; Tesla is still accepting $5,000 deposits for the vehicle.

Mint we're 16 trillion in debt. Your link lays out a gameplan that we're not even close to following. And your other arguments are pretty myopic. The economic collapse of Europe didn't start taking place from spending cuts. The spending is what got them there in the first place! No economist is even disputing that.
You're talking about making the entire economy a Government fueled bubble. Where we take on endless debt until the day we can't, then what? Curious how you left out currency devaluation in this public-debt fueled utopia of yours.
Tax cuts cause money hoarding and "stagnate" the economy? Meah I think we're done here. Way too early to debate this much ignorance. I don't even know how tax cuts entered into a discussion about EV subsidies, just another straw man. Some Leftist elitist fed you these lofty, but ultimately failed, talking points. Congrats. Still makes you wrong. Government is never the answer.
