Tesla Motors is building and delivering electric cars at the rate of about 10 an 'electropop'. However, several Teslas have been in wrecks because they are so quiet.
Engineers may have to rethink the whole design. The car will go from 0 to 60 in 3.9, and as the picture shows, from 30 to 0 as quickly as you can say, "Holy Electrodes Dark Knight!"
Witnesses say this car went unnoticed as it weaved between bumpers, until it weaved into the car in front of it. It smashed a Mercedes, but probably would have been unharmed had it slipped under a Hummer or Escalade... ;)
