    Latest on S Plaid handling?

    I should have said about the same as the Taycan Turbo, less than the S, but more than the 4S, which can hit 60 mph in 3.4 seconds, fast enough for me.

    Latest on S Plaid handling?

    Its cost will be around the same as the Porsche Taycan, albeit with better range. If Porsche can do better on the range and further develop the charging network (admittedly big ifs), I wonder how well the Tesla would sell.....

    Latest on S Plaid handling?

    I drove an S a while back. It was quick off the line, but the handling left much to be desired. I have been hearing rumors that the new Plaid will make a big jump in the handling category, but have not seen anything definitive. Anyone know the latest?

    Old and New Seats?

    I found the first generation 3 seats uncomfortable. I am not the only one, though I know others found them to be perfectly fine. Has anyone compared the next generation of seats with the older version? Any comfort difference?

    Model Y Performance vs. Model 3 AWD+

    How does the handling compare?

    Y have enough range for trips?

    Thanks. Sounds like there are ample Superchargers.

    Y have enough range for trips?

    I am thinking about the Y performance. The range is supposedly 315 miles, though I have heard people say it is more like 280 miles. In any event, given Tesla's charging network, is that enough range to drive, say, cross country?

    Model Y 0- 60 mph

    Are there lighter 21" wheels one could use?

    How well does the glass roof reflect heat?

    I have been exploring the Y. I saw a video by one owner who said he planned on adding tint. See

    Unplugged Performance to upgrade performance

    I searched for Unplugged Performance and found gobs of posts, but none that went to how good the company was to work with and the quality of its work (though with so many posts, I could have missed it). Feedback?

    Steering Feel Model Y

    I know exactly what you mean. I have a Porsche Cayenne Turbo. I drove the Tesla S, X, and 3, but admittedly not the Y. In the performance versions, they make a great dragster. But cornering and handling is a different story. The S and X I simply found unacceptable. But the 3 in the...

    Hoping more comfortable than 3, better handling than S

    I looked into this. No luck. Seats are too complicated these days, with airbags, etc. No auto guy wants to touch them. Too much liability risk. There is a video out there about someone who replaced the seats entirely with racing seats.

    Raven vs. Plus suspension

    I was looking through the used Teslas on the Tesla site. I could not find one that listed a Plus suspension. Several had a “smart air suspension.” Is that the same thing?

    Hoping more comfortable than 3, better handling than S

    I hear that the Y and the 3 will have identical seats. Bummer for me. I may have to check out the racing seats! On a positive note, Tesla apparently is planning a supercharger closer to where I live, The only one in my area, I live in north Baltimore county, is a healthy hike south.

    Hoping more comfortable than 3, better handling than S

    There is a video on the internet of someone who replaced the 3 seats with racing seats. It is a bit tricky, if doable, but you lose an airbag. At this point, I am not ready to go down that road, but maybe someday, especially if the Y does not handle the way I would like.
