What do the Tango, Tesla Roadster and Wrightspeed X1 all have in common? Easy, they are all ridiculously quick and sporty electric cars. And now, they've all gotten together for a quick photoshoot and some lunch. While we'd love to snag a ride in any and all of these awesome electrics, a lucky Tesla Motors Club Forum member who goes by the handle 'TEG' has scored a ride or drive in at least two of them. Yes, we are totally jealous. But, at least TEG was nice enough to share some experiences of both Martin Eberhard's Tesla Roadster and the (now blue) Wrightspeed of Ian Wright. He says, "If the Tesla feels like a trapdoor opened and gravity took over, the X1 feels like you were shot out of a cannon. Also in many sports cars you explore the limits of the suspension, but the X1 seems so connected that you are really just exploring the limits of the tires." Yeah. Did we mention that we are jealous?

      I've driven that actual Tango there. That big guy on the left in the black shirt is the owner. Poor Jorg doesn't get a shout out or his own tags?

      I bumped into Jorg again at the Palo Alto EV Rally. He gave me a nice ride in his Tango. It is definately a "different" sort of vehicle. Hard to relate it directly to a traditional car experience.

      I know how to reach him. If he ever has the inclination and the free time it could happen. No need to push for it. But thanks, anyways!

      I think the ABG author added names to his version of the article since it is fairly obvious who owns the Tesla and the X1.

      Looks like you figured out who owns the Tango as well.

      I would love to get a ride in the Tango someday, but I am not holding back because of that!

      By the way, it was breakfast, not lunch...

        I mailed Jorg and suggested he contact ABG and ask them to put you in touch with him.

        Sorry to take such a circuitous route, but I don't like to give out my friends' email addresses, and this way he gets to decide if he wants to "decloak" to you and ABG.
