I've been considering the same thing, but it's to replace my aging VW Rabbit, not my P85D. I love a manual transmission (my Rabbit has one) and in many ways my P85D feels sterile, even with much higher performance capabilities. I drive my Rabbit more than I drive the Tesla (two exceptions: during commutes, when I can use the HOV lanes in the Tesla, and on SF to LA runs, where autopilot shines).
For pure driving enjoyment, a small car with a lot of engine and a manual transmission can't be beat. Do it.
Very interesting. I'm used to reading posts on here like "I sold my 911 because I was never driving it anymore".
I don't commute to work and don't anticipate doing it in the future, I also don't make a lot of long distance trips either which eliminates both of your main Tesla use cases...
I'm getting closer to biting the bullet. I think I still need to find a way to drive one somehow.
