SPOTTED: Tesla's Electric Take On The Supercar

Tesla’s new models like the Model S sedan and the Model X wagon may be in the news, but the company started off with something a lot more fun.

Our friend Twaro saw the original, the Lotus Elise-based Tesla Roadster, out and about in Arlington, VA at what appears to be a Gold’s Gym. It doesn’t appear to be plugged in, so perhaps the owner has plenty of juice left in the batteries.

We have to admit the owner also has a pretty good vanity plate on the car.
