During the Bourne Ultimatum press rounds last year, Matt Damon revealed that he was on the list for an upcoming Tesla Roadster. “Next year I’m getting a Tesla Roadster, which I’m very, very excited about,” he said “It’s an electric car, gets about 250 miles to the charge and is fast as hell! I can’t wait to get it. Driving a green car is one of the ways we can all do a little more, so I’m trying to do that.”

Well, obviously, it’s been a long wait for everyone on that list — but to ease the pain just a bit, it appears that Tesla let Damon take a prototype for a cruise out and about Studio City, CA! Steve Levy, editor of the great new site, autofiends.com, was sipping a coffee when the actor pulled up. Here’s a bit of his reactions: 

“The passenger jumps out to grab some coffee and I walk over and start talking to the driver. I ask if I can take some photos and he tells me to go ahead. I’m chatting away asking questions about the car, trying to figure out why he’s driving it and whether he’s press or maybe a disgruntled investor being thrown a bone—test cars haven’t exactly been offered up that easily, and actual production cars…well! I take a few shots and we keep talking. This guy’s raving about the car, telling me it’s a prototype, how unbelievably quick it is, super friendly and open. Still, I’m thinking to myself who is this guy? Then it drops about three or four minutes in—that’s Matt Damon! Cool! So what does he think?”

Jump over to the site to get Matt’s reactions from his test drive of the Tesla. Needless to say, he’s impressed — and when pressed as to whether he was going to get one sheepishly responded, “Yeah, I guess so…”

    How stupid are you? In order to produce a low priced high volume car Tesla needs money and battery prices need to drop. With a high priced car they get the money they need to produce a more affordable car for the masses. So how is there no point in this car? There is the biggest point in this car

    How can you not even think of that?

Don’t blame vegans for the shame you feel about using animals

The shame Carly Lewis claims veganism casts over her is more likely the ghosts of moral uncertainty, spectres that are more likely fish than cows, wondering how morality can possibly be used as ammunition in favour of murder.
