Currently Tesla Model S is leading with 59% of the votes.
I just voted. It is not even close, as Tesla has 59% and the Ford Focus Electric is 2nd at 21%. Go Team Tesla.
Not quite an owner yet but you can count me in as 1 who drank the kool aid big time.
I voted the MS of course...
Soon to get 'Time to build your Model S' email
I'm starting to feel bad for the other guys. It's not even a competition anymore.
All this good press is very good for a change in attitude towards clean vehicles but could be very bad for TM in that either a ton of competition will come after them or they will be acquired.
All in all, great for todays consumer and our grandkids...
Doesn't hurt my TSLA position either... :)
TM would be a very indigestible meal for any acquirer. The approach and culture are completely at odds with the gas-centrice ones. Acquisition would either stifle TM or severely disrupt the acquirer (assuming it was an automotive major).
I would generally agree with you, Brian. I see TM as a takeover target for a manufacturer who (in a few years) hasn't spent any time on EVs and needs to catch up in a big way.
Final verdict not in yet but a very thorough and positive review was posted today with the car getting almost 10/10 stars in every category and an editors choice stamp.

I'm actually disputing that that could work. I don't think the "fit" is there. A purchaser might dream sweet M&A dreams, but ...
CNET's Tech Car of the Year for 2012 is the Tesla.
Just gave the first review at CNET, come on people go give Tesla some good reviews (only if you love it of course).
