2012 Tesla Model S Track Test This is pretty exciting to me. My experience as an early Roadster owner is that the actual "car guy" perception of the Roadster was falling quite short of the expectations Tesla set, and consequently I was not an early member of the Model S reservation list. When I saw the first reviews and saw it seemed (preliminarily) to meet or exceed expectations, I got excited again. This is the first real performance testing I have seen, short of Dan Neil's anecdotal excitement, so I'm glad to see the car meeting the stated performance metrics (which my Roadster definitely did not). Can't wait for my Model S!
