    correct me if I'm wrong...but M3's would beat those cars, right?

    why did they go up against the beast?

    I guess based on price?

    This is what happens when one state is allowed to run the regs for the nation. The CA automarket is too large to lose, so whatever insanity is forced there gets complied with as much as possible by automakers and the rest of the nation has no say in the market as a result.

    The true cost comes out and people can't afford it.

    'zactly!

    nobody wants an EV solution.

    doubly so when you take out the free shit.

    don't get me lathered up by using the the word "credits".

    Road Trip!

    took the Tesla to see daughter...she passed the big Nursing school entrance exam.

    Steak dinner!

    We got there early to let her take the Tesla to pick up her boyfriend.

    he's a car nut that has never, ever ridden in a Tesla.

    she hit the on-ramp, hit the skinny pedal>>>....he asked her not to do that again!

    he didn't know Tesla's were THAT fast.



    Life is good.

    :rofl:

    Fastest thing you can get for the price. It's soulless speed, but it's really fast soulless speed.

    agreed.

    I'll add some corrections...

    it's the fastest thing, regardless of price.

    Soulless...gotta agree there. it simply goes.
    Tesla took out every part of the soulful experience:
    took the gear changes out
    took the rpm bases power curve out
    took the visceral howl of the engine out

    and left us with only the result. a 9.3sec 1/4 mile.


    it's like Everclear...everything is refined out, except what matters.

    I disagree on two points.

    First, would be that the result is all that matters. The soul adds fun, but if you're into necrophilia because it gets the job done, well you do you.... or you do the old lady down the street that died yesterday. Whatever. :notsure:

    Second, they can be beaten with enough money. It's just not cheap. Land speed records are a thing.




    Just playing devil's advocate on the second point. :devil:

    whoa...necrophilia? come on now.

    yes, it can be beaten. if you look at videos, the only thing that beats it are 1/4 mile specific hot rods...like 1500hp dragster based cars.

    meaning, you would have to specifically modify a car to beat it, and that usually renders the car unable to be a daily driver.

    ponder that....my wife drives this thing to Walmart, with the A/C and Stereo on. While getting ~108 MPG!

    soul?...man, I still gotta agree there.

    I much prefer to drive the '34 Ford, as it belches and bitches down the road! I get way more thumb's up from other drivers.


    but that's the rub....technology has forever altered the performance envelope of autos.

    I hate that EV's are so fast....

    truth be told. I had a similar reaction my first time.

    see who amongst us has been in a car that did 0-60 in?

    4 sec's?
    3 sec's?
    2 sec's?

    one only imagines how it would feel.

    but when that quiet car gut punches you in silence & you are doing 60mph before you catch your breath...that's the magic.

    sad thing is....Tesla drivers are acclimated to it.

    I’ve been traveling this week for work and took out a company vehicle. I can’t tell you the amount of times this week I:
    Forgot to turn off the headlights
    Reached for the gear stalk
    Frustrated it didn’t switch as fast from reverse to drive / drive to reverse
    Exited the vehicle forgetting to turn it off
