Tesla Motors

Self Description

July 2013: "TESLA MOTORS was founded in 2003 by a group of intrepid Silicon Valley engineers who set out to prove that electric vehicles could be awesome.

THE TESLA ROADSTER hit the streets in early 2008 as a car with no equal. Four years later, over 2,300 Roadsters drive emissions-free in more than 37 countries.

MODEL S AND MODEL X are the next step in the "Secret Plan" to accelerate the world’s transition to electric mobility. Model S is now in production!"

Third-Party Descriptions

October 2007: 'Tesla Motors, the Silicon Valley electric sports car startup, last month outlined its production schedule (PDF): 50 cars in the first quarter of next year, and 600 more to follow. And they're pretty much sold out. "We will soon stop taking reservations for 2008 Roadsters and start a traditional waiting list for people interested in reserving a car in the future."'
