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.

What makes up societies? Individuals.
If the Individual is cast aside for the 'greater good' the rest of society suffers as their base weakens.
