I enjoy killing time by watching Youtube videos people make of all the weird build quality issues their Teslas have.

In general I can definitely see the appeal of electric cars for city stop-and-go, but for that a $100k+ Tesla seems like overkill.

Took a P90D for a test drive and was bored within 10 minutes. No sound ruined it for me. When I drive a 997 Turbo I cant stop thinking about it for days.

Sound is key for me too. My GT350R had one of the best sound tracks for OEM! My new to me 7.2tt is on a truck up to Portland right now and suspect a good exhaust is one of the first mods. I went through 5 different systems on my original 6tt before nailing it with Speedtech loud. Electric cars are super popular in CA with the use of HOV lanes- that’s hard to beat!

I will soon be marketing some high tech playing cards that attach to the Tesla rims. Worked well on my bicycle years ago. Should also help with pedestrian notification. Price will be $1500 for a deck; $1700 with jokers included. Clothes pins for mounting will be extra.

On the other hand, my 911 Turbo S did. I dreamed about it, thought about it lustfully, constantly, till I got one.

Same with my new sedan. I looked at Teslas. Friends said I should get one, but it didn't call to me like the new MB S63 did. I couldn't stop thinking about it and every time I get in it now, I still get goosebumps.

Hey, if a Tesla screams at you ... OMG, BUY ME! Then, of course, get one. I much preferred the interior and exterior of my new sedan over the Tesla, fossil fuels be damned.
Can you imagine an 8 year old kid with a picture of a Tesla on his bedroom wall dreaming that maybe one day? I don't think so.
It needs to have pistons, smoke, noise and use petrol to be a real car. I sat in one in a dealership in Hawaii recently and the salesman was wanking on about how fast it was, it can blow away a 458 blah blah and all I was looking for was an escape route. Bored the crap out of me.

Betcha plenty of kids today have Teslas on their walls actually. (Even if you exclude Teslas in space...)

One word " BORING"

I would not give up my 3rd pedal until my left leg gets amputated. Every other car here in SoCal is either a tesla or a prius and i always getal a very fulfilling feeling cutting them off in the fast lane when they're driving like turtles and don't want to budge.

No road rage what so ever. Just a little reminder that if you see someone coming faster just pull to the right and let them pass especially if you're going slower then speed of traffic. Your ***** wont shrink trust me.
