Take a Tesla for a Spin for $25

A Tesla Roadster.

Ever dreamed of driving of a Tesla Roadster? Got $25?

A San Francisco car-sharing company that turns your car into a timeshare -- of sorts -- is renting the super speedy electric car for $25 an hour.

Getaround makes cars are available all over the City, ranging from high-end Teslas to more modest vehicles. Owners set the price to borrow their ride.

The startup provides the insurance but renters are responsible to fill the car up with gas, which makes driving a Tesla even that much more attractive.

If the $25 an hour rate sounds too good to be true, it is. The rate is part of a promotion that is only good through January, to get the company some much needed publicity.
