Tesla is one of the most well known names in the modern day automotive industry. It is the leading automotive manufacturer for battery powered cars. Yes, that means zero gasoline usage. It is without question that the evil genius behind this company, Elon Musk, has done anything except the abnormal. Their brand released their first car in 2008 and today in 2020 it is one of the most popular and practical options you can get on the market. Tesla’s have entered the market from the top down as they are quickly on their way to meet the $20,000 to $30,000 price mark, but their most popular models are $35,000 and above.

The brand is most noted by their quirky leader, their long range capabilities under one singular charge, their surprising performance aspects, and their cutting edge technology. Currently, the Model S holds the record for the longest range on one charge which was 370 miles, but Elon claims 400 miles is coming soon and also claims that the coming soon 2nd gen Tesla Roadster will not only be the fastest production car, but it will also have a range of 620 miles which is absurd.

  • Tesla Model X ————————————— Starting MSRP $81,000

The Most Popular Car Colors and The Modern Paint Technology

Henry Ford once said about his Model T, "you can have any color as long as it's black". When I was a kid in the 60's the cars in my neighborhood were always painted cool colors. One neighbor owned a 59 Nash Rambler painted Plumb Purple. There were Orange Plymouth Road Runners. We had a Harvest Gold 67 Chevy Impala wagon. With the spring weather here I am seeing all the classic cars out riding around the neighborhood. And they are beautiful.
