Remember the 100% electric 2008 Tesla Roadster?

You know, 0-60 mph in 3.9 seconds?

A 13,000 rpm redline?

And, of course, 220 miles per charge, thus costing about two cents per mile?

According to a letter from the CEO, the promised Tesla roadsters are marching in:

"Already 9 production Roadsters have arrived in California, another 3 arrive this weekend, and they will keep arriving at the rate of 4 per week (except for the scheduled factory shut down in the last two weeks of August). In fact, currently there are 27 Roadsters in various stages of assembly. In large measure we deliberately limit the production until we install our own born and bred final transmission by mid-September, at which time production will start to ramp up leading toward a monthly rate of over 100 cars in December."

The new vehicles come around the same time that the company is opening another store in Menlo Park, Calif. (the first was in L.A.).

As Slashdot reports, "the early owners must be proud, but there could be complications."
