Here's +John A. Tamplin's description of driving a Model S on the track.
http://www.teslarati.com/taking-model-s-track-john-tamplin-part-iii/

Indeed you're right +Ton Aarts that it's the drive train not the battery that is the prime heat concern on the track. (Hot battery is such a concern for damage to the life of the battery, I wasn't thinking of the drive train!) But I will say the Model S is a >300 kW motor and is much better than the Roadster. I've been in both and they are fun if only on the street! The Roadster is a much lighter car so can get away with a smaller motor.

If I had the choice on the track, I'd take a Model S any day! After driving an EV, I can't stand the lag of gas. As my husband says, it's like driving on Magic.

So .. a real, able, & useful Android (if/when they are manufactured & produced) will be machines with motors to control the engines that give guidance to the machines themselves .. (or should that be engines that control the motors .. ?)
Hypothetical .. of course ..

I took a short test drive in an S and I AM HOOKED!  What an absolutely beautiful machine.  Unfortunately, the price point is way out of reach for me.

The naysayers said that it cold not be done, but Mr. Musk certainly proved them wrong.  They said the same thing about his SpaceX program, too.  WAY wrong again!

Maybe Mr. Musk's Phase 3 car that theoretically is to be priced in the Toyota Camry price range might be a possibility when it comes out in 4-5 years.

Today's hybrid cars are really just gas powered with puny little electric motors to get the car moving so the gas motor can take over.  On battery power alone they cannot go very far at all.

Releasing the Tesla S patents to the rest of the automotive world is quite a gesture of openness.  Whether the other car manufacturers will risk making such a move to an all electric car remains to be seen.

In June, Superchargers delivered more than 1 GWh of energy to Model S vehicles. See the stats:

It would be nice for them to be as convenient as gas stations, but I know that won't happen for a while. But in places where there's a large concentration of vehicles, rather than concentrating on capacity per station, you should concentrate on convenience.

For example, in Fremont, you may have lots of spots at the factory, but not everybody lives there. Perhaps a smaller one at the other end of Fremont, near the Dumbarton, would serve people from the whole county who commute to the Peninsula. You can't cross the bridge these days without seeing at least one other Tesla.

A special thank you to our veterans: 
Tesla Motors, which is on a mission to bring electric cars to the masses, now has another goal — to become a leading employer of America’s military veterans.

+Felix Fradera there was a brief moment when SpaceX considered PR as a site for future rocket launches. Maybe one day it will happen, and that will help bolster the economy. Though I don't think they will need the other location for a while. Not until there are so many reusable flights out of Florida and their private location in Texas, that they need another location.

Accelerating the world's transition to electric mobility.
Introduction
Tesla’s goal is to accelerate the world’s transition to electric mobility with a full range of increasingly affordable electric cars. Palo Alto, California-based Tesla designs and manufactures EVs and EV powertrain components. Tesla has delivered more than 2,000 Roadsters, the world’s first electric sports car, to customers world-wide. Model S, the first premium sedan, built from the ground up as an electric vehicle, began deliveries in June 2012.
