Sudden Expected Acceleration Today

I want to kiss that giggle pedal about now! Tonight I had to slaaaaaam on my breaks to avoid a #*€* DEER!!.. I stopped in time but then I hear a car SQUEALINGGGGGG his wheels behind me! I see his headlights right in my back window JUST about to slam into me!.. I FLOORED it!! then almost cried because I was seriously bracing for impact and .. there was none!
Thank you Elon and baby Jesus!! It was so amazing and I'm still in shock. I am still sitting here an hour later amazed at how that quick acceleration saved my a$$-- literally! Whew I need a drink!

Wow! Glad you avoided the disaster that almost struck! That sounded like a close one.

But now you have me thinking, shouldn't I get a discount from my insurance company for having the Performance model (that can get out of the way more quickly)?;)
