I own a P90DL since last April 2016 after 30.000 kms driven I came to the conclusion that my expensive Tesla is a car with real world performances absolutely below to what Tesla is claiming. Though angry I do not want to be harsh, the main aim of this thread is to make some light on what Tesla is not saying and maybe to avoid other people to make the same mistake I did. as per thread title, this car is sold from Tesla claiming perfromances, both speed and acceleration, absolutely not realistic and really far from what an old ICE car can provide - at least based on the way we have been used to consider spec data until today. let's talk about maximal speed, I live in Europe and sometimes drive in Germany, yes with a P90DL you can reach the advertised 250 kmh in rather a short time frame - but then? after a bounch of seconds battery overheats resulting in power cut and speed loss did you ever experienced such a problem on an ICE car? have you ever read on Tesla's web site that the maximal speed can be maintained for 'x' seconds just? another significant limitation : cruise speed vs range If you are driving a Tesla, a huge horse power and speed supercar who can burn any car @ a stop light sprint, please also consider that when driving on motorways you will have to behave like driving a small sub 8.000$ city car. if you go faster than normal speed, in Europe 130 kmh, (for instance when you are on a German Autobahn), your car's battery will last no more than some tens of kms. also this limitation is well hidden on Tesla's web site where the range vs speed simulation is limited to 120 kmh ! I do not need to add that with a Diesel car you can drive @ 200kmh for many hundreds of kms. without refuel. last nonsense : shoud you encounter the Porsche driver who likes to check his car performances vs fantastic Tesla, then take care - you have limited time and a small number of sprints available under your right foot. after 3 stop light sprints or 2 (german) motorway accelerations from 100 to 200 kmh your Tesla will no doubt overheat resulting in power cut and end of the fun. (do not worry, no problems for the Porsche) have you ever read about this on Tesla web site? did Tesla sales men ever warned you about this limitations, may be asking you about your drive habits? I consider to have been chated by Tesla, a company who is playing much the game of 'let's promise much more than real, we really do not care about what this could bring us' For sure they have very good lawyers ready to react and defend the company. yes, I am angry and I would like to give back my model S without losing any money!
