OK, so I am new to the Tesla marque seeing as though it has never been something anywhere near my price range. With the advent of the Model 3 however, it's time to do some research, which I have been doing over the last three weeks or so (including joining this forum). So today I mosey on down to the local Tesla showroom and they happen to have an available test drive slot open in a Model S so I jump at it. Now, understand I have never stood within 10 feet of a $120,000 car much less driven one before. To say I was a little nervous is a huge understatement. The handling, the autopilot, the other technology...just fabulous. One cool thing the showroom Model S's have is the ability to select the performance of all the various models. (Don't know if owner's cars can do that or not.) She selected the performance characteristics of a 70 and said that would mimic the minimum performance of the Model 3 the closest (0-60 in 5.4 sec. I believe). When we got to the point in the test drive where she said "put your foot to the floor" it literally took my breath away. I was amazed. I will definitely NOT be needing anything faster, that's for sure. I can't even begin to imagine what a Ludicrous launch must feel like...certainly beyond my sphincter control! Overall, the ability to introduce potential customers to Tesla quality and performance by using the Model S has to be a secret weapon nobody else has. Certainly sealed the deal for me. The thought of being able to have a car with that kind of performance and technology at almost a third of the price? Yeah...here, take my money. Dan p.s. I had to stop by the local WalMart for some new underwear! OK, not really but my blood pressure hasn't returned to normal yet.
