The new Safer, Greener, Faster Tesla Model R



November 02, 2011 – Comments (4) | RELATED TICKERS: TSLA

For those of you who refuse to believe that you will not get electrocuted by the Tesla Model S, due out in production next year (and completely sold out already!), Tesla just announced the Model R.  Scheduled for production in North America in 2015 the new Model R will be environmentally friendly and completely safe!  The frame and chassis will be constructed entirely of hardened rubber (from rubber trees - how cool is that?)

The lightweight (which allows it to go 0-60 in 4.3 seconds) hardended, rubber dubbed R-tesla, will have the tensile strength of steel, the elasticity of a rubber ball (safest auto on the road in highway crash tests!), and inexpensive to manufacture creating hundreds of jobs for Puerto Ricans! 

If you like the sound of this latest invention from Elon Musk, founder of Tesla, rec this blog post so we can get him to read it.  Then he will see how much interest people have in this new advancement in automotive technology!

Hasn't the hype blown over with this yet?

I'll put any of my gassers over this. It's not even his platform, speaking of that wheres that "borrowed" quatro he planned out?

 It's a cute science project but it's baffling me how it's got any following behind it. 

 If you've read a single word from Musk that's enough to turn buyers off supporting him even if he made a car that granted world peace was 2 bucks sat 8 and out ran F-1 cars.

 This is just the sporty prius, most buyers don't know or see through it. And I think now at least most people know how bad a deal the prius is for everyone. But some people really feel that dumping money into half done tech will cause it get better down the line and I agree on that respect but I always retort with why give up on Diesel or normal fuel? FWIW lots of higher milage cars that are a lot cleaner to make and cheaper (as well as not being shameful to drive) run ole dino bones.

Wow, Aces.  You really have a bone to pick it sounds like.  This was meant as satire and you seemed to take it as a serious pitch for a world-changing innovation.  You can keep your gas-guzzler.  The world is going electric whether you (and your gear-head, gas-guzzling buddies) like it or not!

The world is going electric, but I'm skeptical of Tesla's ability to deliver. Actually manufacturing cars is a tough business and I really don't see the actual production volume being enough to amortize the fixed costs over.

^ I understand your skepticism and I would not bet real $$ on them at this point.  But if they are a game-changer then Elon Musk could turn out to be the next Steve Jobs for the auto industry.  On the other hand, he could just be the next John DeLorean...
