Here starts the Tesla in Japan Blog...

The plan for this blog is to document the search, research, purchase and use of my retirement car. Since I was a teen, my dream car has been a Porsche, either a 911 or a Carrera. My first car was a 1967 VW bug, so a step up to a Porsche seemed a logical move. Who doesn't want to drive a fast, slick car, built for speed and catching peoples' eyes? Sigh...

This dream was transformed in the past 18 months as I read about the car company Tesla. As you may know, Tesla is working very hard to bring all-electric cars to the planet. As you must already know, the image of electric cars is not a good one; I've read and heard that golf cart is the most common image of an electric car.

Tesla does not build golf carts; in fact, they are building some of the sleekest, fastest production cars on the road. If you did not know that, get ready for a ride. I haven't driven one for more than a short test drive, so I cannot yet comment much on that (more coming). However, I will post what I have found out about the car as time goes by. If you cannot wait, just google what you want to know.

Oh, yeah, I live in Japan, so this blog will document information as it purtains to having a Tesla in Japan. Fasten your seat belts.
