    Mach e has both RWD as well as AWD models, and both can come with standard and extended range versions.

    I was out on that road biking too earlier that morning. Fortunately they didn't take out any innocent bystanders. Unfortunately heavy price to pay for their mistake.

    Driving too fast is dumb and dangerous regardless of vehicle. Sorry to hijack the post, lets let people get back to loving their Tesla. I am not a Tesla person, but free country.....

    Very few cars are going to get a 2 flat 0-60 on a street. You're likely going to need a much better tire than what came from the factory, warm tires (i.e. after a burnout), and a prepped surface (i.e. not a random street). Nonetheless, cars are much, much faster from the factory than they used to be.

    My 3 year old likes to tell me to "punch it" when I am driving. One time it was coming out of a stop light and I didn't notice the tesla next to me. I didn't really accelerate that fast in my dad mobile minivan but the tesla must have thought it was a challenge and blew past me. He got pulled over two blocks up. It was glorious.

    Perhaps?
    0-60 in 2 seconds is completely new in street legal vehicles. Quite honestly,society may end up limiting this. Or at least around a high school parking lot when classes let out.

    Precisely. I am not a fan at all of the touchscreen gear shifter.
