Tesla

Post by AmareIsGod »

Anyone here have a Tesla? I traded in our Tacoma that I loved dearly but the gas prices were eating away at me, especially since my wife and I were driving it regularly to my parents to visit with our 18 month old daughter as well my wife has been taking her to the zoo and other places frequently.

Ended up getting a used 2019 Model 3 AWD Performance directly through Tesla. It is amazing. I honestly don't know why I waited so long. It's crazy the technology. I feel like I'm in a futuristic spacecraft with wheels. And the 0 to 60 is incredible.

Anyone else have a Tesla? What model and what are your thoughts, whether you've barely had it long or had it for awhile? It's so weird just plugging in when I park in the garage and getting into a fully charged vehicle anytime we leave.

I drive an anti-Tesla, 8 cylinder, 455 HP beast. Yes, FF, let's race. :D

I do respect the Tesla technology and I have no doubt I'll own an electric car at some point. One of my buddies has had a Tesla for a few years. The self-driving capabilities just aren't up to snuff yet from what I've seen. I look forward to the day that it is. I'm also sure the battery distances will become further and further. I envision a future where we don't own cars anymore and that they just come pick you up and are on a constant schedule being used as needed.

pretty sure the tesla will win. I think it is a 3.1 second 0-60 time and a top speed of 155. But I haven't read the specs on your model camaro recently.

I'm totally with Indy on this. The anti-Tesla would have no chance in a quarter mile. You're not beating 0-60 in 3.1 seconds in a 455 HP gas guzzling beast.

Sorry Bone. I'd probably beat you off the line 0-60. The performance model is no joke. I've already had a few idiots with muscle cars and a few high end imports look at me and get all revvy at the light. My silent car can't rev but it's hilarious when I just gun it and watch them in my rear view. I tend to not oblige unless I really feel like it. A Charger SRT Hellcat did keep up with me though. I was barely ahead a smidge. The guys girlfriend was laughing and gave me a thumbs up when I eventually just let them proceed with speed after about 60 mph. No need for a ticket at that point or to endanger anyone.

Guys, go back and read it again. I was talking to FF about racing his Vespa.

And I know first hand about the super duper Tesla or whatever it's called (ludicrous mode?). I had a guy want to race me here in San Diego as he showed off the off the line launching speed.
