The California New Car Dealers Association's latest numbers note that Tesla Motors took a nice 12% chunk of the luxury sports car category in California for the first half of 2013. This 12% cut was enough to pass the Audi A6 and Lexus GS. Tesla Motors' Model S is the car in question, with the company selling 4,714 of the electric vehicles in the first six months of 2013.

 

1,097 of them were sold in June, making this number enough to beat the big boys like Porsche, Volvo, Cadillac, Buick and Land Rover for June, 2013. Tesla Motors' Model S is pretty darn safe, too.
