Why I would buy a Model S (really): If I am going to buy a car, let me buy one that will give me crazy acceleration, a perfectly smooth ride, will give my family the room the five of us need to travel and the safety we so very much want to arrive safely, and will give back to the universe one less-dented world. Why I would NOT buy a Model S: I like the smell of gas on my hands. No - wait. I like Meineke! No - I miss the rattle of my muffler and the risk of Carbon Monoxide Poisoning, and transporting hundreds of pounds of liquid gasoline in a car going 70mph, and I miss my mechanic (sorry Joe!), leaving the house and realizing I have no gas in the car, and I miss oil changes and timing belt changes and I miss the time my fan belt broke and the alternator went and I miss the brown crusting rust that a non-aluminum car offers, and the chance to have the brake pads replaced and learn the rotors are scored so deep they need to be replaced and I think I also miss the chance to buy a car that has little or typically no update-able software, is outdated before it is bought, has no guaranteed resale value, and would have cost me well-over $2,000 (minimum $1,856 in fuel, $150 in Oil Changes) to drive for 6 months instead of a documented $240, and I'd miss waiting for my gas car to warm up while my fingers freeze on a frigid winter's s morning because the Model S's heating takes seconds to turn on - if the Mobile App has not already warmed the car), and I would not buy a Model S because then I couldn't sit down with those nice dealers and wait while they "speak to their managers", and I'd miss the chance to drive behind an engine which, when I hit a tree, has to be displaced under my family's feet at 70 mph, and finally I'd miss the chance to help payback that loan we gave General Motors. Best Mobile App Moment: Leaving Salt Lake City and turning on the charging port in Boston so my car was warma nd charged when I landed. Most Important Mobile App Moment: Showing friends in Times Square the Tesla Mobile App and realizing that the frunk was open on my car, which was miles away. Oopsy.
