Since the cumulative knowledge on this forum is incredible, from technical advice to grammatical correction to philosophy and beyond, I was wondering about reverse. In ICE vehicles reverse is a low one-geared drive with a limited top speed. Since the S has no transmission, is Reverse simply the opposite of Drive and therefore you can go as fast backwards as forwards?
Since I've had my S, I spend a lot less of my time at gas stations so I am able to spend it more productively like pondering questions like these. In the new marketing strategy Tesla says that you can drive the S for $500/month because you spend less time at gas stations and your time is worth $100/month or more. Who knows, maybe someone will invent the perpetual motion machine in the time he/she might normally have been in a gas station.
