Well, I pulled the trigger. I initially told myself I was going to wait several months, see the reviews on the Performance Plus Suspension upgrade, and wait for adaptive cruise control. But after lurking on this forum for a week or two, I can't take it anymore. I ordered the Model S P85 with Performance Plus Suspension, tech, panoramic roof, sound studio, etc. in black with black interior and grey wheels. I have never owned a black car before, and I know it will be hard to keep clean, but the pics of the Model S in black are amazing! I was also going to wait for better seats, but who knows if they will ever be offered. If they become available, I hope to be able to buy them later and have them installed. What sold me is the incredible instant torque that even puts my 2012 911S to shame. I am worried that I'm going to miss the incredible cornering of the 911S, but I hardly push that car that hard anymore anyway for fear of an accident or a ticket. I didn't order the Tesla for the fuel efficiency, since my commutes are less than the 30 miles/day. I placed the order because no other car will give me that type of acceleration without needing to shift gears, it has room for my golf clubs, it looks amazing, and it will be like no other car in the parking lot. Thanks to everyone on this forum that has taken a chance on the car before me!
