I've been driving my current car since I was a teenager, so I'm not really a car person. However, the Tesla Model S excites me in ways that only technology can. Right now I make enough money to have a mortgage, save for retirement, invest, and have plenty left over for entertainment. I'm looking at getting a raise that would give me an extra $1000 a month or so. Using a local bank, I can get a 10 year car loan which would make the monthly payments for a Tesla around $950 or so. Would it be worth taking out that 10 year loan to get a Model S? I don't intent to be paying for it for 10 years, but its a start until I start getting bonuses (which I'll put towards the car) I normally wouldn't even buy a car nearly that expensive but I love technology and I love where Tesla Motors is going. That, and all other electric cars don't meet my basic range requirements.
