I usually get annoyed at form over function kinda things but i will forgive Tesla on that one just cause they make cars that look cool rather than ugly boxes like other manufacturers.
Weren't Tesla and Lotus were partnered in making the EVs? Thats probably why it looks cool. Tesla Roadster looks like an Elise from the back.
Also what was said about the garages is a big issue in the EV world anyway. EVs becoming the norm means many Mechanical Engineers (involved with ENGINE design and service, not chassis) lose their jobs and instead Electrical Engineers would be more in demand.
I'm studying at UWA and I wanna know why Mechanical, Oil and Gas Engineering are still the most popular majors. Shouldn't the studying, future engineers be training in areas of new technology? Or at least something that will keep them employed for more than 10-15 years?
Its a university!! New development and research, no?
Anyway, I'd buy the 4-door Tesla if I could.
