OK, which one of you guys is styling around in the new model 3 I saw?

Ya, you with the surfer tags  

Nice ride!  Give us a review.

Tesla says 200+ mi range, 0-60 in 5.1 and $35K before incentives.  

100K mile/8yr warrenty on the battery too.  Not too shabby. 

Just for comparison, 0-60 is 7.4 for the Chevy Volt and 11 for a Prius. 

Camaros and Mustangs with performance packages are getting 4s.  

If you need faster, the Tesla S, yeah, the "sedan", will get you there in 2.5.

Incentives:  https://www.tesla.com/support/incentives

The tasty one is the $7500 tax credit.

There are a couple of Tesla 3 cars where I work, one belongs to a friend and I had a chance to check it out.  Nice cars, like the styling...kinda timeless, will still look good 10 years from now.  He says it it will do 0-60 in the high 4 second range. Have an acquaintence with a Tesla S (again, very nice on the inside and a timeless body style) and he says he does low 4 seconds (not sure exactly what model Tesla S it is).  I was teasing him that it has to be the most disappointing 4 seconds of his life.    All you get is the electrick whirr and no smoke or roar.    I'll keep my Hemi...at least for now!  Ha!

I test drove a Model S, and that's what I missed the most as well... the sound! It had gobs of torque and really cool technology but I didn't think it was all that fun. The regenerative braking would take some getting used to as well.
