So just got me a Tesla Plaid,
And I am still trying to know what to think!
It's certainly breaking new grounds for me!
Mixed feelings maybe?! Dunno, again it's something that I've never felt before in any car! And the tech is just above and beyond!

Forgot to mention (Addendum 12/5)
I had a 2015 P90D with Ludicrous mode with a 2016 "Newer" back then battery and did have zero to 60 in the vicinity of 2.6-2.7 seconds!
But let it go and I don't recall bad mouthing it because I knew I will be coming back to Tesla! It was neither ready, much less mature for me to let go of my most favorite brand ever BMW!! Might still be the case !! Elon has to do a lot more for me to forget my first sweet marriage with BMW's most beautiful 3 striped ///bride

I miss exhaust but that's it, no actually also uniqueness! Tesla looks like a Tesla , Plaid deserves more

Keep us posted on your Tesla ownership journey. Iíve got an S on order for June. Just the standard, not the plaid. It would be my first electric. So Iím looking forward to the experience. Iíve got a 21 911 S as my daily, but I want to start lowering the miles on it. So this will accompany that. I think itíll be a good combo.

Congrats!
It's a "Silent killer",,, Have never been interested in any sleeper, I am "In your face" flamboyant type of guy, but couldn't resist the temptation of being in the cabin of FASTEST PRODUCTION SEDAN or ARGUABLY CAR SO FAR!! !!

But deep inside there's something telling me it needs to look the part and has to look a lot more special but don't know what or how to do it!!

Rubbing it in? Hahahaha
Several years ago I had a Tesla when it was only in Model S and X flavor and back then it was quite the Exotic Car! Apparently not anymore, watered down by Model 3 etc

It's not a toaster, it's a slicer... for other manufactures. Slicing their best cars performance and technology...

Apparently sound isn't that lol
But in all fairness
It's got so many tricks but missing big 2!
1. Sound drama (Has a different sound though)
2. Exotic look worthy of its sheer madness!!

Take a look at what it does mopping the floor with most super hyper cars!
