Following up on my popular (or infamous) thread ("Guilt" for being able to get a Model S?!!), here's another teaser!
Just got back from watching the new "Lorax" and observing my 5.5-year-old son and his schoolmate get swept up by the complex messages of consumerism vs environmentalism in there!
So... as many of us eagerly wait to get our hands on a Model S or an X,
- Could we be lusting after yet another "thneed" - as Dr. Seuss called them - that's not very different from many traditional high end cars in that we simply 'want' them rather than really 'need' them?!
- Or, are the Model S and X going to be the "truffula trees" that'll (literally) bring back fresh, smog-free air?!
- Or, are Tesla cars a bit of both? Consumerism with a noble purpose in mind?!
