Let me introduce myself. I'm a car enthusiast. I love speed. I love the connection between the driver and car. I love rowing my own gears. I love the sweet sound of the engine and exhaust in perfect harmony with the acceleration and deceleration of the car. For those who consider themselves driving enthusiasts and have come from driving entertaining, manual transmission cars to a Tesla, what are your thoughts? Do you miss the visceral experience hearing the roar of the engine as you shift yourself going down a winding road? Do you feel the driver-car connection is in any way diminished? My next vehicle involves some odd cross-shopping. I've narrowed it down to a Tesla Model 3, a 2018 Mustang GT, or a newer Camaro SS. I've owned a Neon SRT-4 and a Caliber SRT4. Both were fun cars, but definitely not true drivers cars. Front wheel drive and a lot of horsepower do not mix well. Enertertaining, yes. Total driving experience, not so much. I've always wanted to own a sweet sounding V8 manual before gas prices go crazy and while we are, arguably, in the Golden Age of the muscle car/sports car. On the other hand, I have an opportunity to join the electric car revolution at the dawn of impressive range and performance in a relatively affordable package. I have little interest in autonomous driving, although I do welcome safety features. I like what Tesla is doing with its cars for the most part. I just don't know if the Model 3 is for me at this point.
