I just saw a car I would actually like to drive! It's expensive, but oh so worth it. I'll have to wait a year or two if I want one. :-)

It's the Tesla Roadster.

Or maybe they'll run over an elephant with it in order to convince people that gasoline cars are safer.

Edison killed an elephant with AC current to convince people that DC was safer?

If there was any car worth learning to drive for, that would be it.

But, what I really want to know, is does it use a permanent magnet motor, or a real induction motor to live up to it's name :)

How do induction based motors work? I've only researched the permanent magnet kind.

or obsessing over my latest conquest

Or having a latest conquest. :-)

So, now I’m having my coffee dreaming about this car...it's lovely. You really should post more…you could be like my morning digest. (no I’m not selfish am I?) …lol

*chuckle* Well, if I posted more, it would probably end up being less interesting. :-) And I post so that other people can read, so no, you're not being selfish. :-)
