Following a frustrating fall in which failed Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney repeatedly and inaccurately lumped Tesla Motors in with bankrupt solar panel manufacturer Solyndra, Elon Musk’s  groundbreaking Model S has been given one of the most coveted awards in the automotive industry, Motor Trends’s Car of the Year Award. This marks the first time the award has ever gone to an electric vehicle,  but the unanimous decision was made on the basis of the car’s performance, which is reportedly simply amazing.

Besides the obvious connection to SpaceX,  as covered in this post, the electric car industry, much like the solar power industry has enormous potential to impact some of the underlying components necessary to open the space frontier. It’s not always about launch costs.
