Tesla Model S: Smooth, sporty and silent

tesla-model-s-maineditors-blog-entry3Most likely, fewer than 10,000 people have ever had a ride in a Tesla Model S.

Today, I, and my mom – along with my brother, who’s the happy new owner of Model S, No. 1984 (yes, that’s really his Model S number) – took a quick spin in his brand new metallic blue Model S up Boulder Creek Canyon this afternoon.

No, I didn’t get a chance to take a turn behind the wheel, though Thomas promised me a future opportunity.

We were under time duress – Thomas had to zip off to a concert he was playing in (he’s a professional cellist) – and we only had about 15 minutes. And Thomas wanted a chance to show off the car to us before putting someone else behind the wheel.
