Matt and Trey Go Car Crazy in Automotive-Themed "Handicar" Episode

With appearances on both The Price is Right and South Park, this week Tesla is really cornering the stoner television market.

Elon Musk Considering Opening Up Electric Car Patents

Rather than hoard Tesla's patents away for two decades, the Tesla CEO is considering opening up their technology to the competition to "accelerate the advent of electric cars."
