Model S Testdrive / Speeddrive

Model S Testdrive / Speeddrive

Hello Members,
unfortunately I'm in Germany and here still have to wait months before getting in touch with the "S".
It would be very helpful to get access to extensively footage of testings. There are several videos in the
web since the launch on friday, but no real tests.
Any links, any ideas?

I am not sure what would qualify as "extensive testing" for you, but the best comments and footage has been brought together on this forum and the one over at teslamotorsclub as best as I know. Check these links:

Probably not till a road mag gets the car for a week or so at a time. I wonder if any are on the early reservation list?

thanks so far, but I've seen all of them... until now there's nothing out there like

-acceleration 0-200 KMH
-how does it go on racetrack
-how does it outperform any big ICE (M5, Porsche etc)

I'm damn hot to see real life tests...

Whity Whiteman, I can already see it in some German motor magazine: "Der große Vergleichstest: BMW M5 vs. Tesla Model S". The M5 will win, what do you expect? I don't know how they'll tweak the test to ensure that the BMW wins, but they will.

I'm already looking forward to invite Wilhelm Hahne for a test ride once I have my Model S. I'm very curious to see if he can step back from the fact that the Model S is an electric car and just enjoy and appreciate its qualities as a premium/sports sedan...

@Volker.Berlin sure a German automaker has to win in all tests it is the case
I have a friend working for a paper testing cars if they write a bad stetement they never get cars again its a give and take
and for sure they have to write it neutral but the winner is a German manufacturer with nice words for the other brand
