… and another one (for Jeremy Clarkson)

For those of you who haven’t heard, there’s a new car driving over the horizon that can compete with a Porsche, has a top speed of over 130mph, does 0-60mph in about 4 seconds, and… is electric. It’s a two-seater, and is called a Tesla. I rather like what this BBC reporter has to say about his test-drive. Whilst wondering who and what is going to generate the electricity once we’ve all converted to electric transportation, I am intrigued what Jeremy Clarkson makes of this one (as well as that one). Some say he has been turning a deaf ear to invitations to test drive the likes of the Tesla (website here). He’s probably finding himself in a double-bind: i.e. how to continue slagging off treehuggers whilst averting his gaze from something he can’t wait to get his hands on. His reputation is at stake…
