Tesla Motors, Inc. is a Silicon Valley-based company that designs, manufactures and sells electric cars and electric vehicle powertrain components. Tesla Motors is a public company that trades on the NASDAQ stock exchange under the symbol TSLA. After 10 years, Tesla posted profits for the first time during the first quarter of 2013.
Tesla Motors gained widespread attention by producing the Tesla Roadster, the first fully electric sports car, followed by the Model S, a fully electric luxury sedan.
Tesla also markets electric powertrain components, including lithium-ion battery packs, to other automakers, including Daimler and Toyota. Tesla's CEO, Elon Musk, has said he envisions Tesla as an independent automaker, aimed at eventually mass-producing fully electric cars at a price affordable to the average consumer.
Retail deliveries of the Model S in the U.S. began on June 22, 2012, at a special event held at the Tesla Factory in California. The sedan was originally code-named "Whitestar."  Tesla is building the Model S  in Fremont, California in an assembly plant formerly operated by NUMMI, a defunct joint venture of Toyota and General Motors. The United States Environmental Protection Agency range for the 85 kW·h battery pack model, the first trim launched in the United States market, is 265 mi (426 km), and 208 mi (335 km) for the model with the 60 kW·h battery.
Among other awards, the Model S won the 2013 Motor Trend Car of the Year, the 2013 World Green Car of the Year, Automobile Magazine's 2013 Car of the Year, and Time Magazine Best 25 Inventions of the Year 2012 award. About 2,650 Model S cars were sold in the U.S. during 2012, and 4,900 units during the first quarter of 2013, allowing the Model S to become the top selling plug-in electric car in North America during the first quarter of 2013, ahead of the Chevrolet Volt with 4,421 units, and the Nissan Leaf with 3,695. Tesla increased its 2013 sales target to 21,000 units in April 2013, and expects global sales of 30,000 units in 2014, with 15,000 units in the United States, 10,000 units in Europe and 5,000 in Asia.
2014 Tesla Model S P85+ takes on the Ike Gauntlet Review (Part 3)
( http://www.TFLcar.com ) The Tesla Model S P85 is a revolutionary car
that says goodbye to the internal combustion engine and hello to the
electric motor. But how will this all electric car do when the road gets
steep and the altitude gets to two miles above sea level.
From Dillion, Colorado to the Eisenhower Tunnel U.S. I-70 climbs 8 miles
to a maximum elevation of 11,158 feet or 3,401 meters. That's enough
elevation and grade to test a small economy car like the 2014Ford Fiesta
and the Chevy Sonic turbo, but how will
the 2014 Tesla Model S P85+ perform on the same stretch of American

Tesla Model S VS Bmw M5 2013
I made this video, of 2 great cars, by editing other clips on YT.
The winner for me is the Model S, for reasons beyond the ones you guys can
see (it's a green car, doesn't need 100€ to fill up, etc...)
I think the M5 is better on track, 3 sec or more, at least. But a company
founded in 1917 (BMW) should have an huge advantage, when compared to one
founded in 2003 (Tesla)
Only made this video thxs to:

1994 Toyota Supra Drag Racing Racelegal.com 5-31-2013
Friday night drag racing at QUALCOMM stadium 1/8 mile drag strip 1994
Toyota Supra Drag Racing The Toyota Supra is a sports car/grand tourer that
was produced by Toyota Motor Corporation from 1978 to 2002. The styling of
the Toyota Supra was derived from the Toyota Celica, but it was both longer
and wider. Starting in mid-1986, the Supra (in its third generation,
Mark III) became a separate model from the Celica. In turn, Toyota also
stopped using the prefix Celica and began just calling the car Supra.
Owing to the similarity and past of the Celica's name, it is frequently
mistaken for the Supra, and vice versa. First, second and third generation
Supras were assembled at Tahara plant in Tahara, Aichi while the MKIV Supra
was assembled at the Motomachi plant in Toyota City.
The Supra also traces much of its roots back to the Toyota 2000GT with the
main instance being its engine. The first three generations were offered
with a direct descendant to the Toyota Crown's and 2000GT's M engine. All
four generations of Supra produced have an inline 6-cylinder engine.
Interior aspects were also similar, as was the chassis code "A".
Along with this name and car Toyota also included its own logo for the
Supra. It is derived from the original Celica logo, being blue instead of
orange. This logo was used until January 1986, when the Mark III Supra was
introduced. The new logo was similar in size, with orange writing on a red
background, but without the dragon design. That logo, in turn, was on
Supras until 1991 when Toyota switched to its current oval company logo.
(the dragon logo was a Celica logo regardless of what color it was. It
appeared on the first two generations of the Supra because they were
officially Toyota Celicas. The dragon logo was used for the Celica line
until it too was discontinued.)
In 1998, Toyota ceased sales of the Supra in the United States and in
2002 Toyota officially stopped production of the Supra in Japan.
As an iconic sports car, the Supra has appeared in numerous video games,
movies, music videos and TV shows. Some of the most notable appearances
include the Grand Theft Auto, Gran Turismo, Forza Motorsport, Need for
Speed, and Midnight Club series of video games and The Fast and the Furious
With the new model of Supra, Toyota took a big leap in the direction of a
more serious high-performance car. Again using subframe, suspension and
drivetrain assemblies from the Z30 Soarer (Lexus SC300/400), test model
pre-production started in December 1992 with 20 models, and official
mass production began in April 1993. The new Supra was completely
redesigned, with rounded body styling and featured two new engines: a
naturally aspirated Toyota 2JZ-GE producing 220 hp (164 kW; 223 PS) at 5800
rpm and 210 lb·ft (280 N·m) at 4800 rpm of torque and a twin turbocharged Toyota 2JZ-GTE making 276 hp (206 kW;
280 PS) and 318 lb·ft (431 N·m) of torque for the Japanese version. The
styling, while modern, does seem to borrow some elements from Toyota's
first grand touring sports car: the Toyota 2000GT. For the export model
(America/Europe) Toyota upgraded the Supra turbo's engine (smaller, steel wheeled turbochargers, bigger fuel injectors, etc.). This
increased the power output to 320 hp (239 kW; 324 PS) at 5600 rpm and 315
lb·ft (427 N·m) at 4000 rpm. The turbocharged variant could achieve 0--60 mph in as
low as 4.6 seconds and 1/4 mile (402 m) in 13.1 seconds at 109 mph (175
km/h). The turbo version was tested
to reach over 285 km/h (177 mph) all-stock, but the cars are restricted to
just 180 km/h (112 mph) in Japan and 250 km/h (155 mph) elsewhere. European
versions of the car also had an air intake on the hood. Drag coefficient is
.31 for the naturally aspirated models and .32 for the turbo models but unknown with the rear spoiler
