Model S P90D Blows Away my Mercedes S65

    As an owner of 3 Mercedes AMG models previously, I have to say my wife's new P90D is simply the most amazing car I've ever driven. The Model S in noise vibration and harshness is quieter, smoother, and a much more refined ride than even a bi-turbo v12 $200,000 S class.

    The simple fact that the P90D has only one gear means no shifting and RPM changes and a feeling of zero wasted effort. Whereas the S65 with it's big v12 seemed effortless and placid before, the P90D is just a generation ahead.

    With full power and torque delivery from 0 mph, the way the P90D accelerates is out of this world and creates an incredibly elegant and refined experience. My 6 year old daughter's comment during hard acceleration was "Dad it's like the world is moving!" In launch mode (even with only Insane mode), my eyeballs felt liked the moved back in their sockets!

    The sales and delivery experience here in Hawaii was simply amazing. My advisor Sam came out to the house 5 times with different variants of the S and X and was never pushy but always informative and unquestioningly helpful. We also had a great delivery experience with Daniel who came in on the weekend to deliver the car so we could enjoy it for the weekend.

    It's been a great experience driving the car of the future, and I've got at least 4 friends who have either bought or are in the process of buying a Tesla as a result. I'll keep spreading the word, but I wanted to put out some kudos for the people of Tesla Hawaii that work so hard to make the customer experience great!

    PS And oh, btw, we take delivery of a Model X 90D Sunday!

    PPS Now if only Tesla would buy Solar City and release the new integrated products before I get my 2nd 11kVA solar approval, I'd be set!

    PPPS Elon, your products are the best!

    That's a great review! You're correct about the drive train being far more refined feeling than an ICE. Keep convincing your friends to buy Teslas!

    I agree JeffreyY. I've had MB S Class, CLS, Maserati Quattroporte, BMW 7 Series, and the Tesla is my fave.
