Somewhere, no doubt atop a giant bolt of heavenly electricity, a spirit by the name of Nikola is smiling, as Tesla Motors has sealed the deal on 100 of its electro ber-karts. We're hopefully going to have the chance to drive one up at Pebble Beach later this week (at least, that's what the Teslas told us at the press intro). Yeah, we're kinda jealous of us sometimes, too. No word yet as to whether Frank Hannon, Tommy Skeoch, Troy Lucketta, Brian Wheat and Jeff Keith are among the 100 early adopters. (And yes, we do realize that the Gen-Y among you may have to google those names.) [Thanks to Eric for the tip.]
