Well this is interesting and something I and am sure 99.99% of the world's population didn't know:
What famous genius said "for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction" ???

In case anyone was wondering,... that Tesla with the "76D" on the back...handed me my hat, on the way home from work, the other day. He dusted me, on the left and an Infiniti, on the right of him, to get in front of the Infiniti to make a turn. Me and the guy in the Infiniti were sayin' DAAAAANNNNGGG!!!
We only did like 0-45, but thats all it took! The guy in the Tesla must have gotten dizzy from those g's on that acceleration run!
Now I know!

The "mess" they are in now is due to management decisions, and I offer Cadillac as the prime example. The union has little to do with it and if you look at the wage structure of the last contract negotiated during the bailout, the unions aren't making great wages hence the push to strike.
*not now nor have I ever been a union member of any sort

We can expand the point to owning a Lotus or a Citroen DS... lots of imperfections and lots of passion. Automotive passion exists and is legitimate also outside the world of RWD V8's and internal combustion, even if we don't share it.

I certainly don't mind giving credit where it is due, in this case the acceleration alone is extremely impressive. Once the tech offered in the Tesla is refined, the fit and finish is uniform, the self driving capabilities are just that, and the range includes a road trip, it will be a difficult package to compete with. Until then, it will still be one fast S.O.B., and my SS will still sound better at the stoplight.
