Carlson's flaming car

Robert Carlson owned the Tesla Model S that made news when it caught fire recently.

Tesla founder Elon Musk obviously laid out a case why this incident wasn't any cause for concern, and Carlson agrees with him.

Despite the fire (which Internet images make out to be a very dramatic one), Carlson said the car performed very well and he plans to buy again, reports Motor Authority. The same site even lays out the case for why a Tesla car fire is a much smaller deal than it is for any other car.

Exchanging emails with a Tesla rep, Carlson wrote that he is " still a big fan of your car and [looks] forward to getting back into one."
