    Well, it's here. So here's what's going on with Elon Musk's Hyperloop scheme for building a high-speed maglev transit system, which he calls "a new mode of transport – a fifth mode after planes, trains, cars, and boats."

    Tesla Motors Allowed to Sell Cars in North Carolina, Because of Course They Should Be Allowed to Do That

    This week marked a big win for electric car manufacturer Tesla Motors as the company won the right to sell cars directly to consumers in North Carolina. While that may seem like a no-brainer -- after all, what would you expect a car company to do other than "sell cars" -- the company's fate in the Tar Heel State was up in the air since a bill passed the State Senate last month that would have made it illegal for companies to sell automobiles directly to consumers in the state, a practice only Tesla currently engages in. Earlier this week, though, the North Carolina House of Representatives killed the bill, which had become increasingly unpopular. Probably because of how stupid and unfair it was on its face.

    North Carolina Moves Towards Banning Sale of Tesla Cars, Because…Yeah, We Can’t Figure It Out Either

    If you live in North Carolina and want to buy an electric car from Tesla motors, here's hoping you already did that, because doing so stands to get a lot more difficult in short order.

    Elon Musk and New York Times Duke It Out Over Tesla Supercharger Evaluation

    In case you weren't already aware, Tesla Motors' Elon Musk and The New York Times' John M. Broder have been involved in something of a brouhaha ever since Broder published a rather damning evaluation of Tesla's Supercharger network, and therefore their Model S electric vehicles, on the East Coast last Friday. Essentially, Musk and Tesla contend that Broder essentially sabotaged his own review, and Broder argues that everything he did during the review was justified. Musk has since come forward with a whole mess of data on the trip, but the reality of the situation is still rather murky.

    Traditional Auto Dealers Complain That Tesla Stores Are Illegal, Clearly Have Our Best Interests in Mind

    Tesla Motors is making quite a splash in the automobile industry. The announcement of their ambitious solar-powered Supercharger network for their Model S electric cars was a pretty big deal, and that's only one of their initiatives. It looks like the way Tesla is getting the word out there has upset some traditional auto dealer associations. See, it's basically illegal for an automaker to directly sell their cars to customers. That's what Tesla's opponents are saying they're doing with their high-end mall stores.

    Tesla Unveils Solar-Powered Supercharger Network, Ambitiously Plans to Cover Entire United States

    Tesla Motors has apparently taken to heart the idea that they should go big or go home. The company behind the Model S electric car has announced their ambitious Supercharger network, which will allow their cars to charge at ludicrous speeds compared to other electric offerings. There are currently only six stations, all of which are in California, but Tesla is already planning on expanding across the continental United States. The kicker? Model S owners will get to charge free at any Supercharger station.
