Want a Tesla Roadster but don't want to wait until the hundreds of buyers already queued have theirs delivered? If you've got a bit of cash sitting around you may be able to cut in line (there's a wiki for everything!) and give to a charitable cause at the same time by bidding for one. You had better act fast though as there are only a few days left in the Roadster auction being held over at CharityBuzz. To get your electric speed machine within 2 to 4 months, you're going to have to plunk down at least $125,000 to place the "minimum next bid." The spec sheet (PDF) provided by the website seems a little dated so you also might want to double check with them about how this model is equipped, since the recent option changes may have you paying a little extra for some previously standard options. The package does include a special tour-for-two of the Menlo Park assembly area as well as some fashionable Tesla apparel. The benefactor of the auction will be the Happy Hearts Fund.
