Prices will come down and performance will go up as time goes on. This is merely the start of the electric age. I'm a die hard car guy...I love the roar of my cars and I can totally appreciate what this car offers. Eventually as prices come down I could see myself wanting something like this for local driving.

A stunning car, but Tesla missed the mark on it's price point. The 50K car is a DOG, and the car most want is the "S"... at 80K WAY out of the price range of most people who want an EV. I'm betting on Tesla failing in the next 5 years without a better solution at a fair market price point. Why would anyone by a Tesla EV at 80K-100k, people in this price point are buying Porsche, Aston, Ferrari.... and DON'T care nearly as much about cost of gas or being energy efficient.
