Tesla Motors sent out a newsletter to its many fans late last night with an update on the state of the business and a preview of what's coming up next. While the Roadster is an outstanding sports car, a tiny two seater is certainly not for everyone, especially at a starting price of $109,000. Therefore, Tesla has been working on a follow-up the Model S sport sedan. Like it's little brother, this one is battery powered but has the ability to carry four. With an entry price of $57,500 (before assorted plug-in vehicle tax credits kick in) the Model S has the potential zero emissions luxury motoring to a whole new crowd. So far this teasing lift of the hem-line is all we've been allowed to see, but those in the know say it is worth the wait. That wait by the way will be six more weeks. Tesla will unveil the Model S to a select group of VIPs on March 26 in Los Angeles. Now if Tesla can just get the loans it needs from the DOE to make the Model S a reality, it could be on the road by 2011.
