Tesla Roadster - Click above for high-res image gallery

With another story about Tesla Motors going public circulating last week (although probably not for a while) – right alongside the news of trouble at electric car maker Aptera – we got to wondering what the community thinks of this move. Is it the right move at the right time (an IPO had been planned earlier, but then the stock market took a nosedive)? Is it a silly investment? Will it follow the IPO from A123 with a great opening day and then dropping back down? Of course, we have no idea – and we're not about to give any advice because we're just not that reckless – but we thought a little poll (polls, actually) would make for good discussion. Vote in the first one here, then follow us after the jump for the rest.
