Behind The Scenes — The Window – Wired

Published on Jul 16, 2013 by WIRED

If founder Elon Musk is right, Tesla Motors just might reinvent the American auto industry—with specialized robots building slick electric cars in a factory straight from the future. That’s where the battery-powered Model S is born.

Tesla Motors – Electric Car Quality Tests – WIRED

Published on Aug 13, 2013 by WIRED

Preorder a Tesla today—but don’t expect to get behind the wheel for another 2-3 months. We go inside Tesla’s rigorous quality testing that each of its vehicles must undergo before hitting the road. From water and drive tests to a 101-point checklist, see the exhaustive inspection these electric beauties go through.

Only at the end did I get a quick blurb about, the USA. This is one thing that is so attractive per the TESLA, that it is made HERE! Internationalists/Multinationalists groan. Groan away. Go away.

The tribute to Nicola Tesla, the greatest genus per electricity, is also very fitting. Tesla transformed our modern electric world, casting a tall shadow over Edison. (Edison simply improved the electric light bulb, with others…) So it was with great interest when I was following the continuation of the electric car via the Chevy Volt, that I read about the coming TESLA. Well done!

There does indeed seem to be a problem with dangerous fires following accidents.

I had the misfortune to be a participant in an auto fire, trying to pull someone out through the sunroof as the doors were pinned shut. Gasoline had shot out from the ruptured gas tank. Not a pretty sight. My burns were slight, his were fatal.

Gasoline auto fires in Houston, well they happen quite often. Per the Tesla fires, I have read one report. The car itself informed the driver who ran over something substantial, to pull over and exit the car! A Chevy Volt involved in a collision, was taken to a yard, and later caught on fire. Later.

As with gasoline powered cars, there will be further evolution of electric autos, at a much quicker technological pace. Tesla seems actively interested in any negative involvement with their cars! Unless they start bursting into mini Novas hurtling down the freeway, the current situation of some fires is not a cause for calling a 4 Alarm alert.

Further, there seems to be a great deal of attention per any incident. Is there a driving motivation behind this? Who would be interested, who would benefit? Are they really concerned about the potential of the loss of life and injury?

I would suggest that more would be accomplished in not allowing incompetent people to drive cars. Drastically curtailing illegal aliens from entering and working in the US (daily accidents here in Houston per such) ending sanctuary cities which become central gathering zones for illegal activities like drugs, gangs, human bondage… would do wonders per reducing death and injury. We have more to worry about than an occasional electric car fire.

Must admit, it would be quite the amazing sight to see a bolt of flaming electrons shooting down the highway, but I doubt such will ever happen.
