AutoComplete: Tesla sold its 200,000th car, now it's bye-bye, tax credit
Here's whats making news on Road Show.
If you were hoping to buy a Tesla, and get the full $7500 tax credit, then we got some sour news for you.
It's going away.
Tesla has apparently hit the 200,000 car sales mark that triggers a tapering off period.
For federal tax incentives.
It will be interesting to see how this affects sales going forward, particularly on the lower priced model three.
And it could provide a forecast of what we can expect when other EV makers hit that threshold.
Remember the Aston Martin signet?
It was the rebadged Toyota IQ, with an Aston Martin grill and some leather thrown in.
Now, well we're betting you remember it after seeing this one-off V8 powered model that was built by the company's [UNKNOWN] branch.
And [UNKNOWN] debut this week at [UNKNOWN] of speed.
It's about the size of a Lazy Boy packs 430 horsepower and has a top speed of 170 miles per hour.
It's also probably terrifying There's a new, big Bentley special edition ready to hit the streets, and we're glad it's not another Bentayga.
The Mulsanne W.O. is named after the company's founder, W.O. Bentley, and is being built to celebrate the company's 100th birthday.
Each car costs a silly amount of money.
And comes with a piece of a real Bentley 8-litre, which happened to be the last car WO designed before leaving the company.
They're only making a hundred of these things, and if you want one, you better be an oligarch or something.
