How did you come up with 9? Tesla's website states a difference of 27 miles. I realize you said "real world" so many its closer than 27 miles, but obviously there was no way to know that when I made my decision to order either of them back in January.Really? 9 miles more range in real world day to day driving make it a no brainer to go with the model S instead of the Plaid? Methinks your decision was based on how fat your wallet is actually. If you can afford both models, the Plaid is the no brainer, m'friend.
Like I said, if the Plaid had more range and same acceleration, then of course Plaid, even at the higher price because why not. But I don't see the value of the faster acceleration over the lower stated range.
