Drove a friends model S the other day. It is a very nice car. To me, the amazing thing is that is just seems like a solid, well engineered car and this is really the first complete car they have made. The original roadster shared a lot of parts and was almost like a test mule for their drive system. Other car manufacturers have been honing each aspect of the car for decades and Tesla basically hit a home run on the first pitch. It is not a car I would fall in love with (I need the pipes to howl for that) but it seemed really good from point A to B. No surprises or weirdness, other than the silence, like a super nice gold cart.
