Tesla Teases Model S Electric Sedan

February 12, 2009

Network site AllCarsElectric today showed us this second teaser image of Tesla's upcoming Model S electric sedan. The vehicle is slated for a March 26 public debut and is said to retail for under $60,000.

Despite being perhaps a touch crazy - and the head of a company that's being decimated by financial woes - Tesla's Elon Musk keeps up a steady onslaught of tease, now giving us a nice Marilyn Monroe skirt lift of  its new Model S electric sedan's side profile. The rims are gorgeous, looking positively like those on a Mercedes-Benz Vision SLR. And the nose and front fender look a bit to me like something penned over at Aston Martin.

But only $60,000 for the sedan? Thus far, Tesla has a bad track record for making pricing realities live up to PR promises. If Tesla can deliver, however, they'll give the stunning Fisker Karma sedan (at more than $80,000) a run for its money. But as Tesla has yet to deliver on mass production promises for its Roadster, we're not gonna hold our breath.
