The mere fact that a company has delivered its 500th electric car in such a short time span is a true indicator of how our priorities have shifted over the last few years. The fact that the car is question is the blindingly quick, beautifully curvy Tesla Roadster is just icing on our green cake. Attracting gearheads and the eco-conscious alike, this gathering of Tesla owners in Los Angeles was planned to celebrate the delivery of the 500th electric sports car manufacturer by Tesla, and coincided with the one-year anniversary of their first retail store. The San Carlos-based company will be aggressively expanding eastward this summer, opening sales and service centers in New York, Chicago, Miami, and DC. Our friends across the pond will be able to see the Roadster firsthand at new stores opening in London, Monaco, and Munich.
