Base model: same rocket, smaller boosters
By thranx on


2013 Tesla Model S 4dr Sedan (electric DD)


Beats every car in town except a Tesla P85.
Sports car, family sedan, and small SUV all in one.
Available coved rubber mats allow safe storage of liquids in trunk.
mini-USB drive holding tons of classical music plays through the car's system exactly as it would on my desktop or laptop...same file system, everything.
Pano roof gives feeling of being in a convertible.

Best Features

Acceleration, ability to switch views on both center console and dash console, enormous cargo space, instant electric heat in cold weather, ability to keep HD rear camera on-screen while driving, ability to integrate with all functions of iPhone. The...quiet...!

Worst Features

Motorized closing latch for frunk is a must retrofit that is so far not available. Lighted vanity visors. Front seat rear storage pouches (coming via 2nd source, I believe). Better trunk and frunk lighting.
