    I gave five test drives to friends today. This car is so frickin fun to show off.

    I bet you can make a lot of new friends that way too

    If somebody would post something from a neutral source about Tesla I'd be interested. All these U-Turn videos are from Tesla shills.

    Oh would you now?

    Go on. Have a giggle.

    What does it matter to you whether Team Tesla "wins" or not? I'm genuinely curious.

    Yes, in the future everyone will bond over luxury sedans.

    The transition from whippet fancying will be relatively seamless.

    Liked the cinematographic use of DaVinci presets in that video.
    Also, it does not look like TESLA is ahead 12 years on the Nordschleife.
    TESLA will soon be absorbed. (Can still be a nice investment opportunity.)


    (ETA: Also I can't tell if this is a clever parody of a TESLA shill or the real thing.)

    Also, What is the mileage of a Tesla S in that 2.X s to 60m/100km acceleration mode, exactly?

    I think the problem is that as soon as you drive a Tesla you become biased. There is one video you might like though. A tad out of date, but my give you the perspective you're looking for. I'll find it tonight and post a link. I can't find it on my phone.

    Sandy Munro is a guy who tears down cars to their individual parts, and writes detailed reports on them which are available for purchase.

    This isn't the video I hoped to find, but it gives you some idea. There is a video where he tears down one of the earliest Model 3 cars produced, and he found a lot right, and a lot wrong, but I can't seem to find that one.

    This video is after the second Model 3 tear-down he did.
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CpCrkO1x-Qo

    ETA: I found one from before the first tear-down where he has nothing good to say about the car.
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QCIo8e12sBM

    The one I was hoping to find is after the first tear-down where he's pretty critical of the frame and body, but complimentary of everything else. The second tear-down was done after Tesla fixed it's production quality problems, so he pretty much has nothing bad to say.

    Oh man what a gig. I wish I could get someone to pay me to take stuff apart. I've been doing it ever since I was able to hold a screwdriver in my jelly-smeared fingers.

    (also thanks for posting those videos, at least a little more substance than zac and jesse's elonsaid weekly)

    Not that one either. That is also after the second tear-down (I think).

    Munro has kind of a narrow focus on the mechanical engineering of the car. His evaluations really don't touch what is, to me, the greatest value component; the software.

    That's why I tell people to drive the cars. First drive a Tesla, then go ahead and drive anything else. Not only will the Tesla put the others to shame mechanically, the software just makes it a whole different class of thing, the same way a flip phone and a smart phone are different classes.
