    Doesn't have to be wheels of course...

    Funnily enough, I saw an almost-mint condition P11 on ebay a couple of years ago, but the money was too much for me They are a rare US import only...

    I want a swimming pool full of naked women. Don't have an exact picture, but this comes close: Piscina...haha - YouTube

    I want a 20,000ft mountain about 5 miles from my house.

    I want two hearts so I can have the aerobic fitness to ride to top of that mountain.

    I want one of these. It's expensive, but not out of reach by an average Joe Schmoe like me ($6500 + $1200 for hand throttle control + the cost of a PWC).

    Yeah I see them all over Vancouver too. I have a poor man's electric car, a Nissan Leaf.

    The nice version goes for $100K, the base version is like $60K, but I imagine there's some other unavoidable adders to that price.

    These suckers are definitely in the high end of prices and the ones I've seen look decked out. They seem to be pretty high performance if some of the highway accelerations I've seen is any indication.

    I'm in Seattle, I wonder if they're mainly a West Coast thing right now. I really do see a lot of them on the road. Interesting on color, Hawg, I think I'm seeing black and maybe silver around here, but there's a lot of white ones as well. I haven't seen that burgandy yet, I like it.

    I've seen a couple here in the Bay Area as well. Those Teslas are so quick on the pick-up because the electric motors can deliver all of their possible torque instantly.

    /Nerd moment off. I still want a Tesla.

    I'd also like to see the guys at Top Gear BBC review one.

    I caught Car & Drivers review on it awhile back. Here ya go Car and Driver: Tested : 2013 Tesla Model S - Review - CAR and DRIVER - YouTube

    Although it's a sweet ride it's really not my style.
    Give me a rumbling gas guzzling screaming
    american V-8 in a race or super car platform and
    I'm good. like a Ford GT, although I've seen many
    on the street. The hottest one I have seen was in
    San Diego. It was gun metal grey with silver stripes. The motor easily visable through the clear plexiglass out back.

    A polished out blown and injected 650 H.P. V-8. I
    followed the dude in to a parking lot and stopped
    and checked it out. That car is pure sex on
    wheels. Ford GT40 challenge part 1 - Top
    Gear - BBC - YouTube

    I'm with DJ. Tesla is a nice looking car, but I'd rather have a Ford GT.

    However I sure wish I'd have stock piled on Tesla future back in March when I started seeing them on street all over the place. TSLA was trading around $38 then, now it's $120+
