That's kind of fun to play with. Simple math will tell you that Corbet's words are true, but it's always fun to have a contraption do the math for you.

Only 177 months before a Prius starts saving money over our 2001 Outback - 391 months (that's 32.5 years) before a new Jetta pays off.

Surprisingly, there is no amount of time that makes a Tesla a worthwhile economic investment :p:
