    The car is primarily for my wife but, still around for me to enjoy whenever I feel like taking it out. She has a few cars to drive so I can be a tad impractical lol.

    I offered her pretty much anything sub 100k. She likes sports cars yet likes the GT style. But, it has to be 4 seats. The Ferrari 360 Spyder was awesome price at 75k but, need back seats.

    I offered her today a Ferrari California which she is considering haha. She is mad I offered it to her hahaha

    We have a Tesla P90D that should be ready anytime now. And this has a full CPO warranty so thats a big plus.

    Other cars we considered
    i8
    Maserati Ghibli (sis inlaw has one so she doesn't want to match) and I don't care for the

    S class non amg
    CLS but about to get a new body
    Audi
    Hate Porsche

    What did you look for

    Honestly, I considered nothing else. In fact, I had not even planned on getting anything at all for another couple of years, but Teslust finally overcame me.

    So glad I went with the Tesla. I previously had an M235i which I really liked, but the M4 was just more of the same. Sure it was faster, and a bit larger, but it would have quickly felt like I was driving the same car that I had been driving for 3 years.

    I have to admit I did look at one other car before buying my Model S.

    I looked at a Model X.

    My wife made me "look" at other cars before my purchase. I spent 5 mins looking at a BMW 5 series. Boring. I looked at Lexus ES and GS and the looks of their front, turned me off. Truth be told, Tesla had me at "Hello". It was over after my test drive.

    Just the Model X. I never thought I would ever say this but "I have zero interest in ICE vehicles"

    I looked at a different color Model S - I already have a convertible - so don't need another overpowered Miata.

    Actually the California T is a pretty nice car - just 10 X what I paid for my track Miata - which can do a sub 5 second 0 to 60 and handles better than this car. Ferrari California T - Car and Driver

    Just so many options in the 90-100k range lmao

    I found a 5k miles P90D with L for the same price as my CPO P90D without L. same options.

    So is 25k less miles w/L worth more than having warranty for 2 more years. lol ugh

    Before I ordered my P85D I came from an Audi S8 which I only got a new car because it was in an accident... We were comparing a BMW 750Li, BMW M6 (Sedan), Lexus LS 460L, Audi RS7 for me. But for my wife she was comparing the Range Rover Sport Autobiography, Audi Q7, Jaguar XF, BMW 5 Series. But ended up on a Model S and when I received mines my wife would always leave her Tahoe keys on the counter with a note that said "Good Luck with the gas guzzler :)"

    None. Wasn't even in the market for a new car. Then I found this board.

    I considered the X. None of the other premium cars really interest me anymore

    I wasn't considering anything fancy, I just wanted an electric car. I considered Nissan Leaf, Kia Soul EV, Chevy Volt. They all have terrible range and are ugly. The choice was clear.

    I really wanted an EV so I looked at the Leaf and the i3. But the range was just too small. I drive 100 miles every day.

    I did consider a hybrid, but once I test drove the Tesla I was sold.
