    On this month's issue of Road & Track there is a review on the Tesla Model S, page 63 R&T called the Prius slothlike.

    Damn these people!

    It was extraordinarily rare for an automotive enthusiast magazine to ever give any family car acknowledgement.

    But as the years progressed, they simply couldn't avoid Prius. So, we get the typical muscle ragging.

    At least there is something now the can focus on that isn't a gas guzzler.

    Let me assure you...compared to the Model S, just about any car is sloth-like!

    If you order a Model S now you'll have it in less than 6 months and depending upon what features you select it could be as soon as 3-4 months.

    I wish I could raise the capital to buy one in that amount of time. The excruciating wait for the more affordable Blue Star line (recently surmised to not arrive until 2017) will just about kill me.
