My buddy had the 60 version. It felt quick but I did not like the car.

One day it wouldn't start. He called Tesla and they remotely connected to the car and told him the firmware on the computer was corrupt and they would send someone out to fix it. Two days later someone showed up and fixed the car. If this was a primary car for someone any regular mechanic cannot take a look. I borrowed it with 120 miles remaining on the dash. beat on it for literally like 2 minutes and it went down to 60-70 miles remaining. Also, with the glass roof it gets VERY hot inside the car. The back seat passengers were all complaining. Cool idea, not for me.

I'd have one if they were fullsize like an Audi S8 or Merc S class. But the front seat is smallish and the back seat is tiny (children only) due to the roofline. And I'm not a giant.

0 to 60 is cool I guess if you want to brag on the internet.
It sure is, and they sure do. And deservedly so, it's a smokin' time.

The pleasure of beating someone 0 to 60 at a red light doesn't outdo the fact that you look like a tool in a tesla. You're driving the car equivalent of a millenial, upset that they aren't making money despite being given government money and people throwing money at them, and complaining about the rules because they don't want to have to follow them.

It'll be exciting when people realize Tesla is a piped ream company and the assets are liquidated. EV may have a brief future while hydrogen fuel cells are perfected, but Tesla is the next DeLorean, just with a lot more people buying in to a company that doesn't make money and is probably about to lose its largest revenue stream (carbon credits).


They are the most innovative company on the planet and they will be cash flow positive this year.
