New Tesla Another Milestone for Visionary Elon Musk

Did you see the new Tesla?

It has autopilot that can park the car in your garage for you, with you out of the car. It observes speed limits and curves, puts a defensive cocoon of sensors around you to avoid incoming obstacles, switches lanes automatically and allows you to summon the car to the curb. You can sync the car with your calendar so it pulls the car to the front of the house every morning at a certain time with your music preferences ready to go.

They just set up a buy back program for the Model S all-wheel drive sedan so you can sell it back to them after three years for 50 percent of the original price of $69,000. Then they sell the used Tesla for $35,000 for no profit. And, the all-electric car gets 275 miles on a full battery, which is as much as any petrol. Oh and 0-60 in 3.2, faster than any four-door sedan ever built.
