Tesla S eats dust

Did a race (not from 0, but from some 20 miles/hour) in left lane today. The car in front of me was a Model S P85. I had to let go of the pedal not to get too close to the guy Ha!

Is not Tesla just for the smug who want to make a statement & save the whales? A Prius for the wealthy.

I drove the P100D these things are super insaine from 0-60'ish. Hated the car and everything about it but the 0-60 launches were fun.

If we all liked the same car we might as well give up.

I think it is more that 'society' wants to force us into a certain car that gets my goat.
And we now get penalised for being different.

Tesla

I got to test a new Tesla Roadster (the one that looked like the Lotus Elise) in late 2009 in Germany when it was delivered to a German friend of mine. That car had the upgraded power unit and even the std Roadster was capable of 0-60mph (0-100kph) in about 3.9 sec on a full charge. That is a lot faster than my SLK55 will go and it is not slow. It was a very impractical toy but so is a Lotus. Fun to drive though and very quick up to 125mph.

I drove one with the 2 speed gearbox. Only Tesla made that looks good and I would actually consider buying. Quick and fun! However the car lacked any sort of character because it was a rebadged Lotus and it felt like they just did not even try.
