Played like a cheap ukulele --  Yesterday we highlighted a mysterious (and possibly staged) video featuring a major Tesla investor who was "overheard" gabbing about new money flowing into the start-up--perhaps to quiet concerns about the company's finances and its ability to produce the $50,000-ish Model S. As if on cue--as if part of a campaign, even--Tesla has announced that pre-orders for the Model S have crossed the 1,000 mark. Good for them, though we still can't help feeling like we've been had.

Senior moments -- Senior citizens get road rage just like everyone else. Only difference is, they unleash the beast in Walmart parking lots. WITH DERRINGERS. [WCPO via BoingBoing]

When movie franchises collide --  Car thieves struck a storage facility in LA Monday night and made off with a $75,000 Nissan Skyline featured in Fast & Furious. It wasn't quite Gone in 60 Seconds, but hey, everybody has a rough day now and then. [Edmunds]

At the pump -- In case you hadn't noticed, the cost of gas has gone up, thanks to increasing oil prices and the switch to summertime's ethanol blend. Good news: folks in the know still don't expect a repeat of last summer's sky-high prices. Bad news: that means you're still obligated to a Disney World road trip with the kids. [KickingTires]

I spy -- Someone with keen eyes and a speedy shutter finger caught the new Bentley Continental Supersports cruising through a road test. (That's it in gray above.) Given its creature comforts and the 600+ bhp, it's completely drool-worthy. Given the £150,000 ($227,000) price tag, it probably won't end up in our garage. [AutoExpress]
