My daily driver is a convertible Porsche 996 and I have a Performance Model 3 (with Performance Upgrade) ordered. I enjoy my current car and am a little apprehensive about the move. While the maintenance costs have been obscene, I bought it used and the total ownership costs will pale in comparison to the P3. I can't help but think about the fact I could pick up a much newer used 911 for less. I think I've boiled down my main reasons for going Tesla to the following: Performance - It sounds like the P3 is going to have amazing capabilities in it's own way. There's more to the story than 0-60 times, but I'm optimistic. Technology - The allure of "Full Self Driving" is just too intriguing to pass up. It feels a little like a $3,000 hail Mary at this stage, but it would be incredible if they pull it off and fun to be part of the early process. Some saving graces on the costs... there's nothing that will erase the high cost of the car, but at least there are some mitigating factors to reduce the sting. Probably lower maintenance costs, fuel costs, and fingers crossed, maybe even a tax credit. The Model 3 is also probably a much more practical car, but who ever had their passions stirred by practicality? Still, it's a nice addition if you can have your cake and eat it too. A silly comparison of apples and oranges, I know. Anyone else afflicted by similar crazy rationalizations?
