I believe it involved publically electrocuting an elephant.

That's what I want to do to a Prius and run the Texas mile in it.

The Tesla's are growing on me, it would make a suitable Houston daily driver with perhaps the Yukon for my road trip car. We'll see how the model 3 does, perhaps it will help bring down the resale on the model S. although I really hate the idea of giving Elon more money.
