Motor Trend suggests Tesla Model S may be most important new car since Ford Model T via @therealautoblog

Tesla has done a very impressive job with this car. Even if you compare it with a 5 series, Tesla wins on all fronts - better acceleration, better torque, better looks. Now look at it as a status symbol. Let's face it, that's what 75% of the cars in this price range are sold for. If you are going to spend $50K+ anyways, which car would you rather have - the one that every other house in your neighborhood has on their driveway, or something unique like Model S Finally look at the economics of it. Compare the base Model S with a 528i. They cost almost the same, but Model S saves almost $1300/year in fuel costs. Add to that the savings in maintenance costs - no engine oil changes, no blown gaskets, no monthly trips to the repair shop. Considering all these, the effective price of Model S comes down to $35K.
