It appears that Tesla Motors, the youngest publicly traded US automaker and also the greenest, might get what the media analysts refer to as the “Oprah Bump” – the most famous television hosts in history just purchased a Tesla Model S electric limousine.
Tesla has been the darling of investors for quite some time now and having Oprah buy one of their cars will surely be great news for the Wall Street bunch. And maybe she was persuaded by the latest Consumer Reports review of the latest Model S electric saloon, which “initially scored 103 in the Consumer Reports’ rating system, which by definition doesn’t go past 100… The car set a new benchmark, so we had to make changes to our scoring account for it,” commented the highly praised magazine. And we’re surely rooting for Oprah to make the same gesture she made back in the day when she awarded her audience with a new Pontiac G6 – for free.
Anyways, here’s the Queen of All Media – who was the most valuable African-American of the 20th century, the greatest black philanthropist in American history, and remains the only black billionaire in North America – at age 61 with her new Tesla Model S. We’ll get to see in the future if Elon Musk’s company will get a massive image bump from her acquisition – it certainly made her dealer Dan love the media moment. We’re also pretty sure that Oprah took home the Model S with that ludicrous “Ludicrous Mode” extra – in case she ever needed to quickly escape her fame…
