2013 Tesla Model S: Commentary from the Public

July 4, 2013

2013 Tesla Model S

Our 2013 Tesla Model S gets much more attention than any car in our fleet. I easily get ten times more questions about the Tesla than even our immaculate 1987 Buick GN or the shouty-SLS. You simply can't get out of it without someone saying something, snapping a photo, or turning to their friends and pointing out what's just pulled up.

Click through to read a few of the interesting remarks I heard during a few days in the Model S.

While taking some friends for a spin:

"Oh my god! My dad needs to buy one of these! This thing is awesome!"

"It's so nice in here. Can we just drive around forever?"

"You weren't kidding. It's like that roller coaster at Disneyland that rockets you forward from a stop. That's a perfect description."

While driving around to the shops:

"Wow, that thing is gorgeous. What is that?"

"Did you just put the groceries in the front? Where's the engine?"

"I'm from England and I'm seeing those cars everywhere. It looks like the Jag. What is it? A Tesla? Well, it looks amazing."

So if you purchase a Model S, know that you'll get a few questions about it.
