Elon Musk, the chaiman of Tesla Motors, had to duke it out with Martin Eberhard, Tesla's chief executive, for who will get the first Tesla Roadster. After these two pay full price for the cars they're helping to build, who else gets one of the $100,000 all-electric sportscars? The New York Times has published a few names of celebrities who are on the buyers list: George Clooney, Arnold Schwarzenegger, and Will.i.am (of the hip-hop group Black Eyed Peas). No one too surprising, unfortunately.

The names come from a ride NYT auto reviewer Lawrence Ulrich took with Tesla' Darryl Siry in a Roaster through the streets of Manhattan. It must've been a short ride, because those are the only five names Ulrich squeezed out of Siry.
