I have the P85D AWD. The powertrain alone is worth the cost of entry. Faster than Ferrari performance, AWD, and every stomp of the accelerator doesn't burn a gallon of gas. Flex your foot and your face and body are thrown back with nearly no accompanying noise. The silence makes the acceleration somehow more rocket like, as if some unseen force is hurtling you toward the horizon. This car is the future of powertrains.
This is a 2017 update to my last reveiw. Took a trip to from Louisville, Ky to Niagara Falls, New York and back ... no problems. Supercharger stations along the Interstate's spaced about 120 to 150 miles apart (stopped at each one to see how easy they were to get to and use going to, on the way back only stopped twice using both Google and Garmin navigation app's. - no problems); adaptive cruise control and autopilot worked perfectly; the ride was comfortable, but firm, i.e., just right for my taste. Computer updates and downloads executed flawlessly. Well pleased, very well pleased indeed. Traded in a '09 CTS-V. Very similar in handling and performance ... S probably a bit faster. But, with much better mpg and silently sucks the headlights off the competition. Love the body style and British Racing Green W/Grey Nappa leather interior color too. Now that we have a Supercharger in Louisville, Ky. The title of my review needs to be changed to FREE Green Lightning. Autopilot, parking, and summon updates work as good, or better, (once you learn how to use them) as advertised.
I have owned the P85D since December. Although the vehicle is incredibly fast and fun to drive the car is a disappointment. The front seats are very uncomfortable. We were promised new seats in February, didn't happen. The navigation system is the worst I have ever used except for the BMW. Mr. Musk told us all the wonderful thing that the New D will do so I bought one. The car does none of these. My wife's Kia has more safety features than the D. It's coming we are told.,I am elderly and am hoping I live long enough to have my tesla have the features I was promised.
