I have a car enthusiast ophthalmologist friend who, while not bashing, has been very skeptical about EVs. In particular whether it would deliver the all around driving experience he's used to with his fleet. Until quite recently he had a Ferrari, and he currently has an Audi R8 V10 (2011), a Mercedes V12, and a Porsche Carrera S. I had been wanting to go by to let him drive my S85, but knew it probably wouldn't have that "blow him away" power he's used to. Since I have a loaner P85 for the weekend while mine's in STL getting serviced I made a point to go by this evening. He'd washed his cars and had an iPhone photo shoot prior to my arrival. So we had a nice collection of cars in his driveway once I got there. He jumped in wanting me to drive him first for a bit and I was rewarded with a Tesla grin and giggle within the first quarter mile of open road! Once I let him take over he jumped on it and couldn't stop laughing and asking "how'd I get there?" (Regarding the speed). He was impressed with the acceleration and cornering and how well behaved it felt. He loved the design and finish. But the piper must be paid.... He dragged me behind the wheel (I was kicking and screaming "no" the whole way!) of all 3 of his beauties in return for the drive. What a blast, ESP. For someone who'd never driven paddle shifters. That R8 wouldn't take long to fall in love with. After a break we took the Tesla to dinner. Because he'd always said he wouldn't like EVs because he likes the "soundtrack" of his ICE vehicles too much I had set up the XLR8 app on my iPhone. It has the actual engine sounds for a number of super cars and revs and shifts using clues from the iPhone's accelerometer. I ran it through the audio system via Bluetooth and cranked it up for the short drive. He loved it...I told him he had no more excuses not to get a Tesla! Not sure if he'll buy right away, but I think I've mad another convert!
