I found this quite positive review in AUTOZEITUNG. Link to the article: http://www.autozeitung.de/auto-vergleichstest/bmw-750li-mercedes-s-500-lang-tesla-model-s-performance-2013-luxuslimousinen-vergleich Link to translate the site: http://itools.com/tool/google-translate-web-page-translator Some highlights (with Google Translate) Therefore, the acceleration is like a catapult launch: Ruthless, linear and without interruption storms the Tesla forward. So inspiring is the driving and especially the acceleration experience, so simple is the driving technology behind it. An electric motor and a constant ratio - that's it. Even the enormous potent V8 petrol engine, BMW and Mercedes seize more than two-ton sedans with an ease forward, seems almost surreal. And they create the sprint to 100 in less than five seconds. The explosive power development and thus tremendous ease of Tesla but they do not reach. However, the most amazing thing on the Tesla is not the splendid electric drive, but the maturity of the vehicle that is also evident in areas such as the suspension or operation. Conclusion: It seems (I'm not sure due to weird translators) that they ranked the S 1st and jointly second the BMW and Benz. Can any of German speaking members help out with a "human" translation of the conclusion?
