The Tesla Model S Is Being Tested And Rubber-Stamped In Australia Right Now

Tesla's Model S Lock Can Be Easily Hacked

Tesla’s Model S is supposed to be the safest car on the road — at least where the physical realm is concerned.

Tesla Motors' Affordable Electric Car Is Only A Year Away

Tesla Motors has what might just be the world’s best car in the Model S, and a more versatile version of that chassis in the Model X, but it doesn’t have a car for the masses. That particular vehicle might be closer than we first thought, with an early 2015 unveiling apparently possible.
