While opinions about Tesla are plenty, one thing is undeniable. This is an interesting car – as such and as a business concept. The main reason of its presence in our garage is that few wish to own it but everybody wants to try it. Isn’t it what we define as our club’s fleet car? Then, it is one huge gadget on four wheels, embodying the dreams of those living their lives via apps on their smartphones. But wait a minute, where’s the driving fun? Here a big surprise lurks to hit you and last longer than the ludicrous 2.8 seconds from zero to 100 kph, achievable in the mode attainable called… yes, Ludicrous. In fact you discover that Model S is not only galactically fast – it also handles well, rides with utter American comfort and is quite simple to use. Moreover, it is also smartly engineered to relieve the driver in many situations. You’re welcome behind the wheel. Or, should we say, behind the tablet.
