Jay Leno, as part of his gig writing car reviews for some sort of furrin newspaper, was handed the keys to a shiny new Tesla Roadster. Of course, first thing he does is sell out the good ol' US of A by stating that the Tesla is merely an "electric version of the very British Lotus Elise," but then he goes on to crank out a more-or-less glowing review of the electron-guzzling car from San Carlos. We're just waiting for an enduro-style race between the Tesla and Leno's '09 (that's 1909) Baker Electric.
