SLK NW to Test Drive A Tesla This Saturday!

SLKs to Test Drive A Tesla!
100% electric, 0 emissions, sports car
Join us for coffee before and a caravan into Tesla Motors with brunch afterwards!

Our own private group showing of the Tesla Roadster!
Your opportunity to learn all about it and test drive one, no strings attached.
There will be no sales pitch, this is an chance to look with no pressure.
Tesla Motors has -$0- budget for advertising so they get their word out to car enthusiasts.
Like US!

0-60 in 3.7 seconds
-0- tailpipe emissions
Can drive Seattle to Portland on one charge
With a motor weighing in at 115 pounds, the battery at 990 pounds, and a carbon fiber body,
it delivers 288 peak horsepower and 295 lbs-ft of torque at the driver's command.
At top speed, the motor is spinning at 14,000 revolutions per minute.

Recently I had the opportunity to test drive one for an hour.
The acceleration reminds me of the Mercedes Maybach, or an airplane at lift off!
It is quick off the line but doesn't handle like our SLKs...

9am Meet at Starbucks Madison Park, Seattle
9:30am Depart scenic route to downtown
10am Meet at Tesla Motors, Seattle
Optional Caravan to Brunch Nearby at Portage Bay Cafe
