    Wish they would make a slight body style change for the new one. There are a few cars roaming the streets that look very similar in design/style

    Traction is probably the limiting factor now. A stronger motor in front might help the 60-155 time though!

    Isn't the front motor supposed to be nearly identical to the rear? I suspect that 1000hp+ might be possible in the future.

    Model S's body style stands out from every car on the road, i see no cars that look like it.

    Can the 85kWH battery support that much output?

    Jag XF is another.

    I think the Model S is better looking than either of them though.

    Big motor front and back. It must be done. Would also like to see a P100 or better and more powerful inverters. Also the truck and new Roadster.
