I'm hoping that Tesla is a success. I think they're going balls-out as fast as they can. This almost-halving of the hoped-for deliveries this quarter and next is troubling, but hopefully just indicative of a delayed production ramp, for quality.

From everything I've read, the existing deliveries have gone very well. Here's a blog from a couple that picked up their Model S from the California factory and drove it home to DC, cross country: http://teslamodelsxc.wordpress.com

The Supercharger announcement is very cool, but I'm unsure who they're pandering to here. How many people drive inter-city much? Still, it's a great sign of things to come - once Superchargers are inner-city they'll be incredibly useful. Or, we'll see places like Starbucks naturally offering chargers in their parking lots to attract customers. That the Superchargers are completely free to charge from is amazing!
