Porsche 911 Fanatics, Volvo Fanatics, Lexus & Ford Mustang Fanatics Become Tesla Model 3 & Model S Fanatics

May 25th, 2019 | by Zachary Shahan

There are a lot of anonymous and a few non-anonymous anti-Tesla trolls on the internet.

February 8th, 2017 | by Kyle Field

As he tends to do, Elon Musk went on a Twitter rampage, responding to questions from the Twittersphere. In doing so and as he's also in the habit of doing, he shed light on some rather interesting details about the Model S and X battery size, Model 3 battery size as limited by the physical footprint of the vehicle and a few tips on stripping down a Tesla for maximum performance

November 19th, 2016 | by James Ayre

As many of this reading this may have already heard, the Chevy Bolt EV has been chosen as the 2017 Motor Trend Car of the Year. An interesting choice, and as the article accompanying the announcement shows, one based on enthusiasm the testers/judges had for the model
