Climate Change: 2014 Tesla Model S P85D
Awesome (and yes, fun) read!
Great article! The author does have a way with words
Hands up who had to web search for what an M-80 is.
That is a truly entertaining read!
Note that this is Road and Track, not Car and Driver.
My favorite quote:
Your id says you're not from the USA so you are forgiven.:tongue:
What a great article! No nonsense. The P85D simply crushes every other car on the road quietly and efficiently, and performs phenomenally well in snow and ice.
want me to make you some?

I want to go snow drifting! looks super fun
But I have to agree, I don´t remember having read an article from someone with such a good sense for language, it is almost like listening to a top musician play a solo - especially wouldn´t have expected that from a car journalist . Not only that, but the write also did his homework with regards to technical details (like which front- and rear motors the P85D has and how they changed the weight distribution).
This writer gets it. Awesome article and thanks for sharing.
Can a moderator fix the thread title or do we need the OP to do it?
I've sent in a request to the appropriate mod to change the title - thanks.
One thing I noticed: in the spec sheet, it lists the front motor gear ratio as 9.34:1.
Can anyone confirm if this is correct? I've never seen any magazine report the front motor ratio so idk
Tesla is pioneering nanny enforcement, with the D's mandatory TC. A V10 rear drive BMW, in snow?
"Then, I turn the steering wheel and the computer pulls the plug. Curses fly."
The most creative thing about this writing was what he left Tesla to read between the lines.
Great article! That should get some comments from the piston faithful.
Their first review of the Model S was also glowing with praise: http://www.roadandtrack.com/new-cars/videos/a3901/road-test-2013-tesla-model-s/
One thing I did take away from it though is that, despite two years to think it over, they still haven't realised the roof can be controlled with the right steering wheel buttons. They complain about it being touch screen only in both articles.
Great read, thanks for sharing!
