Leave it to Elon Musk to make the boldest of statements to date regarding the Tesla Model S.
Following the recent 2012 Model S Beta first ride, Tesla CEO Musk told the crowd:
Musk, who was surrounded by 3,000-plus Model S deposit holders, spoke at length of Tesla's plug-in sedan. As the crowd thinned, Musk kept the hits coming:
If you drive another premium sedan after driving the Model S, it's going to feel like a jalopy.
Musk, in true celebrity fashion, autographed license plates, shook hands with reservation holders, waved goodbye and vanished. The CEO was running "seriously late" for a meeting, but stuck around to answer every question asked by people who had reserved a Model S. Once a salesman, always a salesman.
