    if the P100D didn't exist, i wouldn't have bought a $140k car! :)

    i probably would have ended up with a Hellcat.

    I was actually shopping for a Panamera before I test drove a Model S, so would go with a Porsche for sure.

    I would have picked up the Mercedes GL350 Bluetec (Diesel) or the new Mercedes GLS350d. I want one of these with a Tesla Power Train.

    Electric car or no car for me. I'd likely have a Bolt right now since it would be the longest range.

    I was looking at a couple of the Mercedes AMG models in that price range or a Porsche Cayenne Turbo.

    The Panamera is just too ugly to even consider. I couldn't drive a car I couldn't stand looking at that people make jokes about constantly even if it was an otherwise great car, and I certainly couldn't pay $150k for it.

    Now that the 100D is out, if I had $150K - what would I buy?

    I'd buy the 100D, the longest range EV on the market, and costs much less than a P100D, which has lower range and higher acceleration that you can't really use in daily driving.

    And, for the extra $$$ we'd save from the 100D, would plan to buy a Model 3.

    Wait... That's what we're doing... We have a 100D on order and a reservation for a Model 3 (though the combination is likely going to end up costing more than $150K).

    Well, I was thinking about a couple of $150K+ cars and opted for a 90D. The reasons that the 100D wasn't a good fit for me were several and I won't bore you all with them here. Different strokes, etc.

    I'd been strongly considering the MB S63 AMG Coupe as a daily driver and a Ferrari F430 as a toy. As much as I've enjoyed the Tesla so far - its 19 days in the shop over two visits in the first month of ownership (to solve the same problem) notwithstanding - I still find myself thinking about the MB. I'll probably get the F430 anyway once my Ultima sells.

    this thread doesn't say no Tesla's it just said no P100D...(*edit i was wrong here), however i would probably get a used Maybach 62S or Porsche GT3 RS! :)

    If this were what other Tesla you would get, then:

    I would get an S100D loaded to the gills with all the options. :) (well maybe the glass roof not sunroof, and stick with 19's for ride comfort...)

    I would also be open to a decked out X100D with Helix wheels painted black...

    There are plenty of vehicles that would be awesome at that price level. However, not a one has comparable autonomous capabilities. As someone with a long commute, it's the one feature I really want.

    You can get a lot more than three i3s. 150k Tesla = around $2100 per month for lease.
    You can get around 7 very well equipped i3 lease.
