You lose a solid fraction of a second, going from throttle to brake. It is one place track driving and emergency stopping share a need. Having driven regen cars (and track cars), an appreciation of...

I wouldn't spend much time in this place, trying to get an impression of Tesla. Many seem to be arm-chairing against them. I'd go to teslamotorsclub.com and look for posts from the those who've...

Before taking the bull-view, I think few are factoring in that Musk always said he’d be around until Model 3 took hold. That was his last goal for Tesla. Would leaving hasten a BR? Dunno, but Higher...

Happy camping. It took a little over a 100 years for CO2 levels to break-out of a multi-thousand year trend of ~200-280PPM, and reach above 400. Every year, a few more. We could start there, but we...

This was about when I gave up. It was August, 2015, and I found myself burning 40-50 mile trips, with VagCom as my passenger. A month later, things changed.



I think CARB and "sniff" states are...

OP: As impressive as adaptive cruise is, the slower you end up going, like real slow stop and go, the more you will appreciate auto-steer / AP. I definitely take my eyes off the road, for <5mph...

Street car owners frequently turn regen down, or off, to slow battery heating. So, endurance is at least one of the reasons reflexes aren't a big deal.

RE: "governmental ordination". Do you balance that with VW's ordination of the car you are going to drive? A Ford truck, when they stop making cars, maybe? Is it the cheap gas?

Numbers don't seem to matter, to Rohl. It could be never, before ICE takes Pikes Peak back. Sorry, Walt.

It would be easy to be a lot more incendiary. Charging at 120, 150, 350KW, and 300+ mile...

Nice write-up. As another GT3, gone Tesla owner, I had the chance to test drive a Model 3 Performance last week. No track mode, almost all clover leaf around the dealership, and one rotary. My P85D...

True, for me too. The *right* people to follow, on twitter, mostly tweak out the noise and aren't very opinionated. The problem with Twitter is more with the user, in my view. It has no journalistic...

Still, might need 'um. One way to look at it: If a Tesla P100D can go up and down, 0-60-0, in the same amount of time on each end, and produce well over 500KW on the way up, how much is there...

Wow. How will Porsche stay relevant, with this crowd? A dealer, even. Mods, please move the thread back. It'll be a clutch play.

My reverence to car brands has never been lower. Somewhere after rebuilding a 3.2, and a few thousand track miles, the romance boiled down to form following function. That, and maybe honesty. My...

If you see things linearly, and witness a 911 GTS unable to beat a P100D to 150mph, you get over the golf-cart thing. Full quarter miles replaced 1/8 mile drags, after 0-60's. Then came FTD laps....

Nice real-world reporting. Thanks.

California's $.26/KWh", or your $173 equivalent electric bill, is a lot more for electricity than most places. The US average is 12 cents. A "Youtuber" recently...

What Model S owners are learning vs. Model 3 is that, like gas cars, EVs come at different efficiency. 89 vs. 126 MPGe are sort of like a 25 vs 35mpg car, and that shows in "miles of charge" when...

Agree with this, especially regarding range/endurance. Intertia and energy density become a losing battle.

Charging is a mess. Convergence to fewer standards may not come for a long time. Plugshare.com produces bubble maps, which can be filtered by standard (like CCS). Probably your best shot.

It seems a few take the function of an electric drive train, and try to spin it as something negative, or limited and undifferentiated. I don't know how much track driving you've done, but a...
