The newest bit of kit in the Classic Car Club is something different. It's the American-made, all-electric Tesla Model S. We've all heard the reviews, but after 500 miles of polar-bear friendly motoring, Classic Car Club can finally tell you what it's REALLY like.
I've got this sneaking suspicion that the Tesla Model S is a great car. Throw out all of the questions about the car's underpinnings, the conditions of range, and the prospects of selling 20,000 of these a year and it probably is great. I know I'm excited to drive one at some uncertain point in the future.
It's possible the Tesla Model S is a great car that lives up to all of its promises. You won't find that out by reading reviews from the early drives of the car, which we've learned — and the company has basically confirmed — Tesla has limited to 10 minutes per outlet.
