Tesla says its new Model X crossover SUV is faster than a Porsche Carrera. The seven-seater is said to clock a 0-to-60 time of 4.4 seconds. That’s a pretty quick mover and according to a recent release from the company, it’s not the only thing that’s moving fast.

According to the statement, one day after the company unveiled the Model X in a splashy webcast, advance sales of the all-electric crossover SUV exceeded $40 million. Not bad for a ride that won’t even go into production until the end of 2013 and won’t show up in showrooms until early 2014.
