Yep... it was amazing. I have never felt a car drive like that. Such handling is a marvel on wheels. I could spend hours looking at the screen and learning new things. Imagine what will happen when I get the software upgrade. My mind is blown every time I sit inside and witness the future of driving right now.
I couldn’t wait to share that experience with my wife. She jumped in along with my youngest son and we where off. She pushed (touched?) every button she could get her hands on. You hear such varied stories about the sound package. She is an audiophile who takes here listening experience seriously. She was simply giddy at the sound quality. The low level bass that isn’t loud and intrusive, but subtle and deep. She told me she still can’t believe how quiet it is. Questioning if it’s even on. The “sniper car” as she affectionately calls it. Feeling the acceleration was such a rush to her. With a smile she said, “I think I could like driving this.” She has yet to get behind the wheel... I know she’ll have to work her way up to that. After a trip to the mall and dinner we headed home. (not without a planned stop at Dairy Queen... no they were no allowed in the car ;) On the drive home she said, “Yeah... I want one.”
That was it...
Last night it was web time. She surfed any and every video she could find on the Model X. (More of an SUV lover that I) She is already a forum member and as of late (the last month or so I think) really started immersing herself in the Model S. She’s a smart woman and wants to be informed and educated rather than “stumble” through things.
So I ask you, has this happened to anyone else? What started as one purchase has quickly and EASILY turned into another sale for Tesla. I can guarantee the $7500 tax credit goes to an X. How can I deny her that? The fun of reserving the car in your name. Reading the forums that are designed for your vehicle. Hearing about the progress they’ve made and what new develops. (over the LOOONG wait) Tesla... I see what game you’re playing at. Sure, I’ll put out this amazing thing that everyone will love. Why not... once you’ve let someone else taste it, they’ll want the same snack. It’ll spread, and spread, and.....
That was dirty Tesla... REEEAL DIRTY!
