How to go from "Electric Car, LOL LAME" to "Tesla's are Interesting, but not for me!" to "Order Placed" in 7 easy steps:

1 - Autocross & Lap TaG & Shifter Karts after Autocrossing many Variants of performance cars (of every "speed category) over the years
2 -Get ruined by said Karts, decide that cars are dumb and don't turn or accelerate.
3 -Be bored on a day to day basis by driving in general by commuting in my Super Comfortable RAM 1500 Laramie Everyday
4 -Be horrified that my boring but super-cushy-luxo-barge has become one of my favorite vehicles I've owned.
5 -Have my wife go-drive a Model 3, who absolutely loved it (we agree to disagree on what we both deem to be "good & fun cars").
6 -Drive a Model-3 myself
7 -Place a Order for a M3P.

I will now be a the proud owner of a cheap Minivan (Vs my Truck & Trailer I just sold) to haul one of my Karts around and will DD my M3P (My wife will autocross the M3P).

Nah, I am about by cheap beater mini-Van!

By the way, I have the car, I like the car. There’s some annoying rattles that have popped up that should be fixed soon and other typical, questionable, built quality related items that won’t be but I knew what I was getting in to. Overall it fits the Bill and I’m not bored yet so there’s that.

I totally get where you are coming from, I still love big turbo Audis, but the Model 3 is just a much better car. And it happens to be electric too.

Once I had a Performance loaner for a weekend I was sold. All the things I used to love are still enjoyable - shifting just right to hit boost just so, the sound, using power and quattro to play with the attitude of the car through a turn. It's just that the Tesla makes it all flow so well all that mental bandwidth seems so unnecessary.
