Many of them seem to be clueless as to where electricity comes from.

the REAL Tesla wanted wireless transmission of electricity

These cars have nothing to do with Tesla. His heirs should sue.

I guess they need something to heal the wound of spending close to an order of magnitude more on a car than the rest of us.

Isn’t the Tesla that cool immobilizer gun they use on “Warehouse 13”?

What's the difference between a Tesla and a cactus?

With a cactus the pricks are on the outside.

One of them is "NIL CO2".

I guess he charges his batteries from his own solar panels?

If he has it hooked up to the grid, it's being charged with electrons from a fossil fueled plant somewhere....

I had to call BS on that one, but yes, IF you use a common, 15 amp, 110v outlet to charge the car, it could take even MORE than 32 hours. Thank goodness no one would think of doing so, except maybe in an emergency. That same 15a service won't even do for my circular saw. I can only use it on 20a services. If you use an easily installed 220v, 70 amp service, a full charge takes a couple of hours...

“What’s the difference between a Tesla driver and a porcupine....?”

I always thought that was "what's the difference between a BMW driver and a porcupine?" Guess it could apply to both...

They should put “SPRFND” on their plates for the SuperFund pollution clean up sites those cars have generated.

15 amp, 110V outlet to charge the car.

That’s no small money worth of solar panel to equal that kind of current and potential.

I would like a Tesla Roadster ... If money really did grow on trees or in the field.

Imagine the solar cells to produce 220v @ 70 amps! I’d like a Tesla too, but not because it is green, but because it looks great and is fast!

You’d think there’d be at least one Eighties music fan who’d go with TSLA GRL.
