    I read it last night; Overall it was very positive and the car did well.

    They ranked it against the Hybrids from BMW, Mercedes, Audi, and Porsche (which all basically suck). I was surprised that they suggest getting the P85 over the P85+, and that they could only manage 4.7 0-60 even though they had the car for over a week. They also mentioned that the P85+ has issues with on-the-limit handling, i.e. the steering becomes unexpectedly loaded and becomes hard to turn, they were also not happy about the power limiting but stated that the P85+ was giving out M5 pace before 50% of the power was cut.

    I must say the photography is great; that grey look awesome.

    This is concerning as that's well off of Tesla's advertised 4.2. I've seen a fairly wide range, from 3.9 somewhere to 4.6 elsewhere (no, I don't remember where) and now 4.7. I understand there will be some variance, but it still seems odd.
