    Hello all,

    I'm new in this forum but would like to have your impressions or comments.
    Does anyone have tested both MS 85 and P-85 ?
    According to you, what is the main difference (I know, not the same power)? I mean the feeling... Is there a big difference during the "takeoff" ;-) ?
    I have tested a Model S P85 in Brussels last month and was very impressed. I would like to know if I can get a similar feeling if I buy a 85 KWh.

    Thanks in advance for your feedback!

    Geoffrey

    I test drove a P85 and placed my order for a standard 85 without having driven one. The S85 is plenty fast and elicits grins and exclamations during acceleration. It's still faster than most of the cars out there. I look at it this way: the P is scary fast, the S is giggle fast.

    I looked at it from an other perspective. Would I buy a BMW M5 over a 535i if it would only cost me 10k more?

    My answer is: Yes I would. So I ordered a P85...

    would I appriciate a harsh ride: Hell no, so I did not order the P85+... ;-)

    Many thanks for your feedback.I will most probably go for a S85 (already a "super car";-)
