To mention. Get both sides of the story to fill in the details.

No, they sued because top gear put up the mpge it got when put under harsh track conditions and then claimed that tesla fell short of their claims. The car was rated at 100mile range for normal use, not grueling track abuse, which top gear neglected

@Jordan that's what Tesla claimed. According to what I heard the mileage figures came from people at Tesla who then sued Top Gear for slandering their car with information that they themselves provided.
Jordan Smith Feb 13, 2012
I'm not entirely sure if this is right but I heard that Top Gear sabotaged the car for it to last like that.

The Model S is already in the production in the Fremont factory and they will build around 40 000 this year, which are sold already anyway....so yes, they are producing indeed!
James E Caldwell Feb 14, 2012
Seems like their business plan is to continuously tease new models to keep their stock prices up without producing anything. How many years have we been hearing about the S being almost ready?

Actually, Tesla's goal and business plan has always involved a cheaper, affordable car to come after the release of their premium vehicles (Model S & Model X)

Thats like a 4th of the cost now... Not gonna happen
