I made an appointment to testdrive the Tesla S next week. The strongest version is a very interesting one. :D

They are impressive figures.  I noticed they didn't include the "spontaneous combustion" ratio though

Take a bag of marshmallows on your test roads. Mmmmm...  lovely roasted on an open fire  ;D

How often was that reported? I heard you have to be Johnny the Torch to drive the car,

lol... yeah, the ultimate offering in heated seats :)

i remember reading (sensationalised) stories of  issues with batteries getting pierced and catching fire on early models.  Don't think it happens/happened often though.

They wrapped the batteries in Titanium? Or put Titanium floors in newer models??  The safety tests modern cars have to pass nowadays is stringent, so I'm sure you'll be fine.... Although, if you do happen to own a pair of NOMEX underpants!   ;D

I learnt long ago, the faster you drive the quicker you arrive at the scene of the accident lol..

2 BMW M3's and a Lotus Carlton have tried to kill me in the past.  I was lucky to get out of the Carlton, the tree I hit looked perfectly fine.  Maybe they should make cars out of trees  ::)

Yeah trees are bad they grow exactly in the spots cars want to drive later. I am sure its on purpose! I had a M3 E46 also. Was a fun car but drove like a Mustang horse where you sit on the first time.

yes its quite a problem, when theres a car crash and a heated metal-piece pierces through the bottom plate into the batteries then they will catch fire with a few thousand degrees
and since they are placed all around the bottom of the car pretty much the entire car starts burining
i read that tesla reinforced the bottom plate with an additional metal plate to prevent this though


from a savety point of view the car is pretty great though, the heavy batteries placed at the entire bottom give the car a very very low balance point that makes it almost impossible to flip the car

Does it burn better and hotter than 98 fuel? Or my magnesium fuel tank of the SLK? firefighters say its super great to extinguish as Mg can not be extinguished with water.
If I like the test-drive I will order the P85D later this year, no joke.

Ordered the P85D without testdriving. Never thought as someone living in Germany  I would ever buy a US car. I think Mercedes is quite stupid selling its shares on Tesla. The more I read and watched videos about it, its my car.
Thanks for this thread, the XIM is much more useful than for gaming. Great community.




and this is how its made

let me know how you like it roads, looked into the model s when it was still in concept phase but then stopped following it by the time it got released

Nice.  I test drove P85 a while back and it's my next car (P85D or otherwise) when time comes.  Q5 has a lot left tho...  =).

Tesla was shockingly impressive and factoring in gas savings over 6 years plus tax breaks in USA makes it a no brainier if you're in that price range / market IMHO.

Very jealous Roads!
