Took a ride in a Tesla!

I work at a new Porsche and Lotus store in Richmond VA. We have a customer that was one of the original investors to Tesla. He has bought a few cars through us and we service is Slant Nose 930. He came by to pick it up from service and let the owner of our dealership take his Tesla for a rip. I went along for the ride and let me say it was probably the coolest car I have ever been in!

I've driven the hell out of some Elise SC's and an Exige S 240, this car seemed so much quicker. I would get one if I had the money.

Congrats!

The quickness you describe is max torque at 0 rpm.

I was wondering how a Tesla would feel quicker than a 240
