    OR maybe they had good judgement back then, but the judges all retired.
    Please tell me which Studebaker model was chosen car of the year by Motor Trend in 1964. I think that you will find that Motor Trend awarded Car Of The Year in 1964 to the Ford Motor Company. No Studebaker model has even won Motor Trends Car Of The Year Award which was started back in 1949.

    My questioning their award is the reality that it is not a car even remotely appropriate or able to be considered by and/or for the average new-car buyer.

    Even after the $7,500 wealth-redistributing tax "credit," the car is still priced over $50,000! And it isn't available in very many markets.

    I'm not questioning the technological wonder of it all, but if it doesn't make sense as a valid consideration for a majority of new-car buyers due to price and availability in small to medium markets, of what value is the award to the average Joe who might look to Motor Trend for a recommendation?

    Bob: Why do you think that it is a joke for Tesla to be named MT car of the year ?

    Tesla will be a punchline in the future - just like Edsel.

    The Edsel was sort of a Buick sucking a lemon, nothing special, the Tesla is revolutionary engineering. Succeed or fail, it's one of the first of the breed.

    I'd like it a lot better if the grill opening was smaller. Other than that, I really like the looks.

    Read the Tesla test report, pretty impressive car.
