So everyone knows I love Tesla (both the company and the cars and soon semi-trucks that it produces). Every time I step into an internal combustion engine car, I cringe. I can’t handle it. It’s just slow, dumb, and immature. I deserve better. We all do. Case in point: I took my car in to put on winter tires and they gave me a loaner. A BMW. It was a real loner and loser when I got into it. Too many buttons. Too slow. Can’t figure out where the damn volume button is. Couldn’t figure out how to turn it on or off. Too loud. It just sucked. Maybe I’m spoiled on S.A.M.? But who cares? We should ALL be. With the affordable Model 3 coming out (late 2018 / early 2019 at the earliest), we can all experience what I experience with my Model S. An amazingly comfortable, fast, quiet, high-tech car. You deserve it. Forget test driving. Just take my word for it. Once you go Tesla, you’ll never accept anything else. Everything else is crap! Sorry, but that’s my opinion.
So in case you weren’t convinced about the mileage, speed, and sheer amazing technology that Tesla incorporates into its cars, Tesla just unveiled its new Roadster. You should start saving up, because this bad boy is going to be over $300k! Is it worth it? I think so. The base model can go 0-60MPH in 1.9 seconds. It’s 200KWH battery (mine is 85) will be able to go over 1,000 KM on a single charge. And its top speed will be over 250+ MPH (that’s over 400KM per Hour!). It will be fully autonomous. It will seat 2 up front and 2 smaller kids in the back. Ample truck/frunk space for a sports car like that. It was designed by the same guy that came out with all of Tesla’s other beautiful cars (conservative, but packed with tech and power):
Now here’s the interesting thing. Tesla is ALREADY the fastest production car RIGHT NOW. The P100D Model S can and has outrun every other type of production car in the world with it’s 0-100KPH in 2.7 seconds. It goes about 507KM on a charge (if you get the non performance version of this car, it can go further because it has a smaller electric motor in the front than the performance version). And it seats up to 7 (yes 7) if you include the rear facing child seats in the back.
But let’s not talk just about specs. Fact and figures. Bells and whistles. Think about this: when I get into a Tesla, I feel like I’m a better person. I am empowered. I can weave in and out of traffic and get to an exit or entrance with the touch of the accelerator. That I can conveniently listen to any music of my choice, while checking out the large screen map of where I’m heading AND all the while have S.A.M. stay in its lane and adjust its speed to the traffic while I’m on the highway. It’s that feeling of awesomeness. It’s so quiet and so powerful. I love that feeling. It’s addictive. You should feel it too. It’ll put a smile on your face 😉
