I feel like I should know this, but all of my impressions of the + thus far have been that it's a superior handler. I've got a + loaner right now, and it indeed handles the way I expected the car would handle from the beginning. Very happy with it. Today, I was waiting far too long to find a clear entrance into traffic. I finally decided to go in front of a truck and floor it (plenty of space, but I did need to move my rump once in traffic). I did, and floored it. The car sort of felt like an ICE with a supercharger or turbo. It accelerated, and then, maybe .8 seconds into it, the car felt like it hit a lower gear (or in an ICE, the turbo spooled up) and I felt like I was in a rocket. I've NEVER felt like that in my P85. Once I was off the main road and on a back road, I went to replicate the feeling to see if it had just been a fluke, and sure enough, that thing FLIES! So is there some acceleration improvement in the P+'s? Is it the wheels? Inverter? Inquiring (and jealous) minds want to know!
