Tesla Model S goes on sale in China for $121K

Tesla Model S goes on sale in China for 121K
Car  |  Other
Tesla has announced that they are launching the Tesla Model S in China. Coming in at 734,000 CNY, which is around $121,000 US dollars, it carries a premium over the $81,070 US base price (without incentives).
"Today we’re launching the Model S online design studio in China and announcing the price of the car. For Chinese customers, the price of the Model S with the premium 85 kWh battery pack is 734k CNY.
This pricing structure is something of a risk for Tesla, but we want to do the right thing for Chinese consumers. If we were to follow standard industry practice, we could get away with charging twice as much for the Model S in China as we do in the US. But we’re doing things differently, even if it means that some people might look at the price and mistakenly think it must somehow mean the Model S has less value than its competitors

Toyota FT1 Concept

Toyota FT1 Concept
Car  |  SportsCars
Toyota showed off the new Toyota FT-1 Concept at the 2014 Detroit Motor Show.
"“Function-sculpting” design language yields curved, muscular, expressive body forms seemingly shaped by the wind.  Inlets, ducting, and vents are features of the exterior design that help reinforce its track–ready nature with elements of purposeful airflow management.  At higher speeds a retractable rear wing deploys and tilts forward to create additional downforce.  The body’s athleticism is expressed with taut surfaces and dramatic fender forms that seduce the eyes when covered in an unapologetically red hue.
The front engine rear-wheel drive configuration locates the cockpit far rearward within the wheelbase to improve weight distribution.  This design element also helps create the classic sportscar proportions one would expect from a vehicle poised to dominate even the most challenging road course. The cockpit’s wraparound windshield and side glass openings are a distinct nod to the design of the legendary Toyota 2000GT."
