Tesla's Electric Car - from page 91
Tesla had already considered the condition of charged particles,
each representing a tightly constricted whorl of aether. The
force necessarily exerted at close distances by such aetheric
constrictions was incalculably large. Aetheric ponderance maintained
Crystalline lattices were therefore places within which one
could expect to find unexpected voltages. Indeed, the high
voltages inherent in certain metallic lattices, intra-atomic
field energies, are enormous. The close Coulomb gradient between
atomic centers are electrostatic potentials reaching humanly
By comparison, the voltages which Tesla once succeeded in releasing
were quite insignificant. In these balanced lattices, Tesla sought the
voltages needed to initiate directed aetheric streams in matter.
Once such a flow began, one could simply tap the stream for power.
In certain materials, these ether streams might automatically produce
the contaminating electrons, a source of energy for existing
appliances. One could theoretically then "tailor" the materials
needed to produce unexpected aetheric power with or without the
attendant detrimental particles.
Tesla did mention the latent aetheric power of charged forces, the
explosive potentials of bound Ether, and the aetheric power
inherent in matter.
By these studies, Tesla sought replacement for the 100,000,000
volt initiating pulses which natural law required for the
implementation of space Ether. Tesla had long been forced to
abandon those gigantic means by other, less natural laws.
Thereafter, Tesla shifted his attentions from the appreciation
of the gigantic to an appreciation of the miniature. He sought
a means for proliferating an immense number of small and
compact aether power receivers.
With one such device, Tesla succeeded in obtaining power to
drive am electric car. But for the exceptional account which
follows, we would have little information on this last period
in Tesla's productive life, one which very apparently did not
cease its prolific streams of creativity to his last breath.
The information comes through an unlikely source, one rarely
mentioned by Tesla biographers. It chanced that an aeronautical
engineer, Derek Ahlers, met with one of Tesla's nephews then
living in New York. Theirs was an acquaintance lasting some 10
years, consisting largely of anecdotal commentaries on Dr. Tesla.
Mr. Savo provided an enormous fund of knowledge concerning
many episodes in Tesla's last years.
Himself an Austrian military man and a trained aviator, Mr. Savo
was extremely open about certain long-cherished incidents in
which his uncle's genius was consistency made manifest. Mr. Savo
reported that in 1931, he participated in an experiment involving
aetheric power. Unexpectedly, almost inappropriately, he was
asked to accompany his uncle on a long train ride to Buffalo.
A few times in this journey, Mr. Savo asked the nature of their
journey. Dr. Tesla remained unwilling to disclose any information,
speaking rather directly to this issue. Taken into a small garage,
Dr. Tesla walked directly to a Pierce Arrow, opened the hood and
began making a few adjustments. In place of the engine, there was
an AC motor.
This measured a little more than 3 feet long, and a little more
than 2 feet in diameter. From it trailed two very thick cables
which connected with the dashboard. In addition, there was an
ordinary 12 volt storage battery. The motor was rated at 80
Maximum rotor speed was stated to be 30 turns per second.
A 6 foot antenna rod was fitted into the rear section of the car.
Dr. Tesla stepped into the passenger side and began making adjustments
on a "power receiver" which had been built directly into the dashboard.
The receiver, no larger than a short-wave radio of the day, used 12
special tubes which Dr. Tesla brought with him in a boxlike case.
The device had been prefitted into the dashboard, no larger than
a short-wave receiver. Mr. Savo told Mr. Ahler that Dr. Tesla built
the receiver in his hotel room, a device 2 feet in length, nearly
1 foot wide, a 1/2 foot high.
These curiously constructed tubes having been properly installed in
their sockets, Dr. Tesla pushed in 2 contact rods and informed Peter
that power was now available to drive.
Several additional meters read values which Dr. Tesla would
not explain. Not sound was heard. Dr. Tesla handed Mr. Savo the
ignition key and told him to start the engine, which he promptly
did. Yet hearing nothing, the accelerator was applied, and
the car instantly moved. Tesla's nephew drove this vehicle
without other fuel for an undetermined long interval.
Mr. Savo drove a distance of 50 miles through the city and out
to the surrounding countryside. The car was tested to speeds
of 90 mph, with the speedometer rated to 120.
After a time, and with increasing distance from the city itself,
Dr. Tesla felt free enough to speak. Having now become sufficiently
impressed with the performance of both his device and the automobile.
Dr. Tesla informed his nephew that the device could not only supply
the needs of the car forever, but could also supply the needs of
a household - with power to spare. When originally asked how the
device worked, Tesla was initially adamant and refused to speak.
Many who have read this "apocryphal account" have stated it to be
the result of an "energy broadcast". This misinterpretation has
simply caused further confusions concerning this stage of Tesla's
work. He had very obviously succeeded in performing, with this
small and compact device, what he had learned in Colorado and
As soon as they were on the country roads, clear of the more
congested areas, Tesla began to lecture on the subject. Of the
motive source he referred to "a mysterious radiation which comes
out of the aether". The small device very obviously and effectively
appropriated this energy.
Tesla also spoke very glowingly of this providence, saying of
the energy itself that "it is available in limitless quantities".
Dr. Tesla stated that although "he did not know where it came
from, mankind should be very grateful for its presence".
The two remained in Buffalo for 8 days, rigorously testing the
car in the city and countryside. Dr. Tesla also told Mr. Savo that
the device would soon be used to drive boats, planes, trains,
and other automobiles. Once, just before leaving the city limits,
they stopped at a streetlight and a bystander joyfully commented
concerning their lack of exhaust fumes.
Mr. Savo spoke up whimsically, saying that they had "no engine".
They left Buffalo and traveled to a predetermined location which
Dr. Tesla knew, an old farmhouse barn some 20 miles from Buffalo.
Dr. Tesla and Mr. Savo left the car in this barn, took the 12 tubes
and the ignition key, and departed.
Later on, Mr. Savo heard a rumor that a secretary had spoken
candidly about both the receiver and the test run, being promptly
fired for the security breach. About a month after the incident,
Mr. Savo received a call from a man who identified himself as
Lee De Forest, who asked how he enjoyed the car.
Mr. Savo expressed his joy over the mysterious affair, and Mr. de
Forest declared Tesla the greatest living scientist in the world.
Later, Mr. Savo asked his uncle whether or not the power receiver
was being used in other applications.
He was informed that Dr. Tesla had been negotiating with a
major shipbuilding company to build a boat with a similarly
outfitted engine. Asked additional questions, Dr. Tesla became
annoyed. Highly concerned and personally strained over the
security of this design, it seems obvious that Tesla was
performing these tests in a desperate degree of secrecy for
Tesla had already been the victim of several manipulations,
deadly actions entirely sourced in a single financial house.
For this reason, secrecy and care had become his only recent
