I read the forum with interest while I wait the long 4 months to get my car in the UK and some things surprise me. The main one is I can't work out what or who the typical owner is. A couple of examples - there's the debate about "what if you lose your phone" - Anyone who's a technology early adopter (and given the car its reasonable to assume you might need to be) has presumably been dealing with this for a while. I'd be less worried about my car given my phone can access my bank account, I have confidential documents from work, it tracks my location and so on, all things I've rationalised and managed for some time. Performance - its quick off a straight line, and it handles reasonably well for a heavy car, but I'm not sure there are many drivers coming from genuine performance cars. Maybe its a European thing in terms of how we judge performance cars. I guess my point is that if you've come from a green or more normal car your benchmark is very different, so how do you judge comments from such a person? I don't feel may people are trading from an AMG Mercedes or M5 BMW. When you see a Tesla owner floor it and you almost get a giggle from them than a "this is a serious driver car" Green - so there's a lot spoken about zero emissions but is the car really that green? Electricity still needs to be generated, the batteries aren't the most environmentally friendly thing to produce etc.. So do the people that are genuinely after "green" really know the net benefits? There was a lot of talk about the Prius when it first came out and in the UK they drove it hard around a track followed by a BMW M3 - the M3 used less fuel. I personally see it more as a financial benefit because of favourable tax and fuel benefits more than saving the planet which it's not doing IMHO. I'm not knocking the car, I'd be knocking myself for ordering one if I did, I guess its the variety of different backgrounds and motivations that has surprised me. Me - I'm getting one because firstly i like cars that are different to others, secondly I like fast cars, and then 3 and 4 would be the technology and I like the fact that the fuel and tax savings mean the car is cheaper than it would otherwise be in comparison to others makes it affordable compared to other cars. Maybe we are all the same but why do others buy the car?
