The 691 Horsepower ‚ÄčTesla Model S P85D Does 0-60 In 3.2 Seconds
Gregory Alan Bolcer stashed this in Cars I'll Never Afford
And you say you'll never be able to afford this one?
$120k?¬† Kids gotta eat, wife's gotta shop.¬† I think my car wants are somewhere way down the list!
So what's the max you think you'll ever spend on a car in your lifetime?
My old Volvo XC90 lease was $800/month.¬† I did the edmunds car calculator and it looks like at most half a testa 85D.¬†
Hmm, they should be coming out with a Tesla in that price range in the next few years.
Yes, but even though the price is right, the car is not.¬† There's nothing more disappointing that only being able to afford a discount/half a supercar.¬†¬† Go big or go home, I always say. ;-)¬† Though I supposed if Google or Microsoft were to buy my company, a Tesla is a fairly safe and understated choice.
I saw the video. Tesla can do that as the torque in the car doesn't have the same mechanical lag as non-electric, so they basically have a straight torque curve all the way up versus traditional ones which are fairly curvy and elastic.
So it's like being on a roller coaster?
I get your point about not wanting half a supercar. Let's hope for Google or Microsoft.¬†
Not sure about the roller coaster.¬† I had a 1985 Honda VF1000R that did 0-100 in about 5 seconds.¬† It was spectacularly fun.¬†
It's fun once you get used to the sensation of your heart jumping out of your chest.
