The folks over at Wired were fortunate enough to review the highly versatile and revolutionary Tesla Roadster. Weighing in at $141K, the Wired drivers were able to get as much as 236 miles on a single charge or stomp it from 0 to 60 mph in a screaming 3.7 seconds! The Wired guys loved it and rated it a 7 out of 10, so check it out to find out what else they had to say about this electric sports car!

It is easy to hustle through corners, and, with a combined 13 settings on the car's adjustable shocks and sway bars, it's easy to tune out the Roadster's tendency toward oversteer. With the upgraded suspension, the ride is firm but not harsh — even on washboard roads. The car is porky at 2,700 pounds (that's what happens when you drop in a 900-pound lithium-ion battery pack), but it's too fast and nimble to be called a pig.
