Here are my arguments for the 160 mile S No long waits to recharge because the car can’t go long distance, 99.9% of charging is done at home. Long distance driving puts ware & tear on your nice luxury vehicle Who wants to drive when you can fly anyway? Be in a better cash position You could also buy a Model X if you so choose. It’s been said that the 160 S is a glorified leaf, but the groupies aren't Dave Ramsey says never live for a car payment. If you lose your current great job and can find another for a while theirs less chance of your car getting repo'ed. LOL!! You’ll have a scarce $50K car that looks the same as a $90k+ car Actually realize savings on your car travel expenses. 0 to 60 in 6.5 sec isn’t that slow. (It’s faster than a Frisker) Because you live 2 miles from your job like me.
