Well the jokey backlash was bound to come at some stage. Kinks happen. They take time to iron out. One wonders how these people ever manage to move house. *sigh*
Considering the visible early press that Wired gave Tesla, Daryl should have given them a drive.
The Robb Report should be included too since they were the first cover cover-age.

Drove it last weekend. For vapor, it drives very well. I guess the one that's supposed to be sitting in my garage is still vapor.
Next year, it will no longer be vapor, even if some of them will have only a one speed transmission.

Yes, that special time of year has come again. We are officially accepting nominees for the annual Wired.com Vaporware awards, our yearly showcase of the products pitched, promised and hyped, but never delivered.
2008 is actually gearing up to be much more exciting than years past.
Some of last year's favorites won't be eligible this time around.

Now we just need to worry about the Model S...
