    Hello all. Got to test a 85kWh Tesla Model S today for the first time and WOW. I thought everyone was crazy for saying "I had the biggest grin on acceleration"... but now I'm a witness. That thing MOVES!

    Pushing the budget extremely tight but I think after this test drive, I'm finally ready to order one and push the button.

    Anyone else participate? I'll put some pics of the Model S I drove later though we've all seen them.

    Was it a straight 85kWh, or was it a perf model?

    Best description I've heard was something like "We started out of the parking lot, then we were rear-ended by the Millennium Falcon." The perf really throws heads back. Sooo much fun.

    They had a Signature model for the original part of the drive just to go around the features than I believe we got into a Standard 85kWh model. Mistake on putting 80kWh in the original post.

    The 60kWh is only a little bit slower 0-60 than the standard 85kWh. If the 85 is a tight budget item, the 60 might serve your needs depending on the length of your longer trips.
