My second cousin had a Tesla - one of the first ones. I got to drive it for ten minutes and loved it. Because of the nature of electric motors the torque and acceleration were unbelievable. The spooky thing is the car is absolutely silent. - the complete opposite of a Ferrari.
He hated the car and I can see why. All weight had to be stripped and the batteries took a long time to charge and burned out pretty quickly. But it's a first generation.
