Kon,

After you paid for the 6,800 Li-Ion battery cells to put in your $35,000 Elise, you're back up to the $100k range again. In fact (as if you didn't know) the Tesla rolling chassis is built by Lotus. Imagine that?

What they fail to mention is that the Tesla can't possibly take
advantage of all that torque at the crank without spinning the wheels -
heck it has 7.5" wheel width in the rear!

A $35k Lotus Elise with a few modifications (maybe none) would probably
beat it. Just think of what you could save :)

Cheers
Kon
