Has someone already started one of these? If so, my apologies. I'm interested in hearing more of people's real world stories of encounters with other cars. Shame on me, sure, for wanting stories possibly/likely involving potentially illegal activities. What can I say, I'm a car nut with a need for speed. I've been fortunate enough to have owned some nice cars over the years, and I bought the Model S because in large part because of the attraction of having my cake and eating it too. My previous car was an E90 M3 (4 door). I loved it in every way except for it's very poor gas mileage. Any way, long story short, I sold my M3 to a friend as delivery for my p85 Model S drew near. Last night I got the chance to meet up with my friend and former car for some quick tests/adventures. I was interested to find that, from a roll-on at highway speeds (i.e. from 60 to about 110-120), the two cars were pretty evenly matched, with a very slight advantage to the Model S. From a slow roll or from a dead stop, the Model S crushed the M3, jumping to several car lengths and then maintaining or slightly increasing it's lead. Nothing terribly unexpected about that, based on tests (the well-documented test against the M5 coming to mind). The M3 makes 414 horsepower and 295 lb/ft of torque. It weighs about 1,000 lbs less. So other than the torque, it has a power to weight advantage. Again, no big surprise, but I have to say it was wonderfully gratifying to pull away from the M3. I will say unequivocally that I miss the glorious engine and exhaust noise of the M3. The Model S lacks sex appeal in that regard, as far as I'm concerned, for anyone who appreciates the character of a really good ICE engine. My next personal test will be to put it against my semi-track prepared turbocharged porsche Cayman, which beats the M3 from a roll in a similar fashion. From a standing start the Cayman will fall behind the Model S. But will it start to gain past 60? From a roll, will it be faster? I don't know, but it should be fun to find out. Anyway, what are some of your stories encountering other cars?
