Yup.

I saw a meme where there were two glasses representing Tesla, one for speed one for quality both a quarter full of water. Elon proceeds to pour a gallon of water in the performance glass and none in the quality.

A perfect metaphor for Tesla.

The build quality of my Model Y is OK. The issues are more about the design decisions:
Poor suspension for rough roads. This is a design decision in the damping department. The parts are high quality, at least on my car.
Too little sound deadening.
Too short seats.
Getting rid of most buttons and then having an awful layout for digital buttons.
Poor NVH control/resonances/booming.
No driver gauges.
A vision system that is excellent at finding cones but little else.

Then for the Plaid, in addition to all of that, you get:
Aerodynamics and suspension that can't handle high speed.
Too little braking capability.
A yoke steering wheel.
