Congrats Tesla!!

Eric – your prediction a few days ago about Tesla having sold more than 25,000 cars to date was spot on. Too bad no one listened to you – they could have made a TON of money in a few days by buying the stock. Ah well 🙂

Seems like the 2013 Sales Scorecard should be updated… I’m sure this puts the total much closer to 100K!

Job well done Tesla. Good early suceess. Now that there are a sufficient number on the road, potential owners can now get a picture of how the Model S will age. Will it continue to be a pheominal car or will it be like Audi- 3 years of bliss followed by years of nagging and often expensive problems?

I tip my hat to Tesla owners, and owners of all first gen products. Your risk-tasking allows the market to improve- often greatly- between the first and second generation.
