    We first got interested in Tesla after test driving a Model S at a scheduled event in Austin.
    My wife and I were both very impressed by the car.

    Initially, as a budget conscious family, we were discouraged by the high price of the MS.
    However, after comparing the cost of ownership of a MS with an ICE car, it started to become more practical.

    We haven't ordered a car yet. Still researching.
    Leaning toward an S60 with the Tech package or an inventory S85 (if we can find one nearby).

    Hopefully soon we'll be proud owners of a new Tesla Model S!!!

    Welcome to the forum! Your story sounds SOOOO much like my own. I received mine in December last year and I can guarantee that you will never look back and wonder, "Why did I purchase this car?" You may think that before it arrives to you, but you will NOT think that once you own it, drive it, and enjoy it.

    Welcome! I love Austin and am a fellow Texan. When I first moved out to California I would see so many Model S's something you don't see often from a small town in Texas. Here at the shop we have a S85+ and it's an amazing car. You will be very satisfied once you have yours :D Good luck with the purchase
