Vs Tesla 3

I'm liking my chances on anything from Tesla
thats in the ballpark of what many of us paid
(well under 30 and not over 30, even with mods).

I thought this thing was supposed to handle so great
with low center of gravity and 50/50 weight distr.
And I thought 39 PSI was insane, but 45?? UGH!!

And that's assuming dry pavement, no AWD until
it's 50 grand.

Oh yeah that's the slow Model 3. I'd look at the Model 3 Performance (dual-motor AWD), 0-60 in 3.5 seconds. I wouldn't opt for any of the autonomous features. Never going to the gas station would be awesome.

* 2017 Fusion Sport, 12.7 @ 108 mph tune-only (early tune of mine, bad trans settings), full trunk w/ lunch, and dirty paper air filter
* 2014 SHO non-PP, 12.4 @ 111 mph tune-only, all day long with dirty paper air filter and worn out 30k RS-As

Trying to compare apples to apples, that one is 60 grand.

When Tesla sells a 10 second hot looking pony car AND a
decent perf AWD DDer for that money, I'll post up the
comparison..........

The New Green Deal, in part, calls for the elimination of all fossil fuel and nuclear electrical power plants, so how will the BEVs be charged? Fusion electrical generation, at this time, is still theoretical science .

Don't worry, Commie Leftists will never get their New Dumb Deal passed.

Patriotic Americans are too smart for that.

The fact that Elon Musk is still getting taxpayer subsidies is insane.

No worries. As long as Tesla stock continues to tank & Elon continues with his outrageous proclamations I feel Tesla may be ripe for the picking....unless he raises some $$$$. Currently Wall Street doesn't appear to be buying into his rhetoric....for now.
Additionally, virtually all the other normally aspirated guys are playing catch-up......it reminds me of the days (showing my age) when the Japanese cars were eating our domestic lunch....we ended up catching up to them....sorry to go off topic a bit.

Elon gives no f***s about Wall Street. He's got more than enough cash to float Tesla for a long time.
