    I personally was disappointed with the performance and handling of the Tesla. When driving it I felt as if I were in a Honda Civic. It is a smaller car that has that “cheaper” feel to it. Not impressed. Fisker’s Karma on the other hand is the next car for me! I’m an old fashion gear head and I approve of the Karma’s power!

    Having driven the Roadster a couple times I can confirm it is a smile and laughter inducing experience. The 0-60 time of under 4 seconds is astonishing. Zero noise. Zero CO2. Zero liquid fuel. The biggest thrill was to drive past a great big Exxon station where cars jockeyed for position to refuel. Me and the bright red Tesla drove past silently – thinking, we’ll never have to do that again.
