American optimism 

This probably proves fellow blogger BlackOps’ point that this is turning into a car blog, but Tesla Motors (mentioned on this blog last week) has released information on its new roadster. It’s a stylish motor that looks a bit like the Lotus Elise (though when you check the site, you realize that the evolution has been quite different), and if the promises hold true, then it will knock the socks off all the other that have come before.
   If they can get the price right, then I will say that this will be the next ’64½ , sales-wise. But even if they don’t, it shows that is not necessarily about design and revisiting past glories. Provided it doesn’t get trampled by the (and Tesla’s backers are visionary, types who have shown the establishment the finger before), the Tesla Roadster is far more an expression of American optimism than anything ’s Big Two are churning out today. The boss has his own blog, and he’s been elsewhere arguing his position—and listening to criticism.
   Most importantly, it could be proof that listening to your —people who have cried out for an alternative to the internal combustion engine and high —works wonders. All it takes is courage to break the mould, and, in this industry, a heck of a lot of money.

Jack, what great news for the millions of us worried about the global spaces beyond our own! Thanks for this genuine optimism. It offers hope!  
Thank you, Ellen! It is worth pointing out that despite all those businesses living in the past, there are some that are willing to live in the present, and, hopefully, take us into a better future. But they probably need us to get the word out, since they are no match otherwise for the establishment.  
Hmmmm....this is very suspicious....I smell motor oil, now why is that. I cannot deny your articles on these cars are quite interesting and your unique perspective is very enlightening. Thanks for the link as well.

Note

Entries from 2006 to the end of 2009 were done on the Blogger service. As of January 1, 2010, this blog has shifted to a Wordpress installation, with the latest posts here.
   With Blogger ceasing to support FTP publishing on May 1, I have decided to turn these older pages in to an archive, so you will no longer be able to enter comments. However, you can comment on entries posted after January 1, 2010.
