Hi All- Great forum.. Glad to be a part of it. I went to my local mall today that has a Tesla Shop.. Did a test drive in the 85.. A few thoughts.. I'm a bit of an over-analyzer.. I also am a "car guy".. I can imagine most on here are.. I've had a Porsche 911-S, BMW 535i, drivers cars basically.. I do admit that I have been a fan of the engine revving, down shifting (even with paddles), etc.. The visceral feel of an engine and all of it's parts connected to the driver.. I hope I'm not alone in that liking here.. I doubt it. Obviously the Tesla is a completely different animal.. I did the test drive, and although appreciated the smooth linear acceleration, perhaps I was subconsciously looking for the familiarity of my past vehicles.. Honestly it hindered the experience.. I HATE to say this or offend anyone, but it felt a little boring.. I remember test driving the 911, and feeling the hair raise on my neck, and my adrenaline flow.. I didn't have that with the model S.. Perhaps the P85 would have suited me more? The problem is, I don't want to spend the money on the P85 car.. My questions is this.. Have others here had similar experiences, and if so, did you overcome it, and how? I'd love to hear about it.. I love everything in theory about the car, even the power delivery.. I just wonder if it's not a fit for me based on my past car loves.. Thoughts?
