Most people buying these things know the only performance thing they'll ever do with the car is a straight launch from a stop at an intersection

Is that true? I would have thought that the most Tesla owners care about is how far they can project their image of wealth and sofistication

Unless you're getting the high end variants of the S and 3, it's not really projecting wealth and sophistication, but rather the opposite. I bought a Model 3 because it just makes more sense financially than say getting a BMW 3 series.


I agree. I see the Model 3 as a Honda Civic that just happens to drive better than a $250,000 car from ten years ago.

The Model 3 is an extraordinary car, but the most extraordinary thing about it is that it's available to anyone for <$50k.

Maybe you can use all that money you saved to buy some perspective.
