2009 Tesla Roadster sports car

Tesla Roadster

Can an all-electric car be sexy and hold its own against Motor City muscle? That all depends on the price you're willing to pay.

At $109,000, the Tesla Roadster is able to hold its own against other exotic gas-powered sports cars like Corvettes, Vipers and Porsches, but does so without a drop of gasoline.

With 288 horsepower, the svelte roadster is able to accelerate from zero to 60 in just 3.9 seconds. The company claims the roadster is able to travel 245 miles fully charged but this distance depends greatly on the type of roads traveled and the amount of lead in the driver's foot.

But what really matters is that while you'll be doing your part to be green on your way to work, you'll also look damn good. That might just be worth that extra bit on the price tag.
