    Really, because I am reading, and what I have seen over and over again, is people pointing out the Tesla isn't a sports car, just that it is quick, and you barge in and claim that "everyone" is saying that it is, and that is what your responses are based.

    Well everyone isn't saying it's a sports car, most of us are saying the opposite. I don't think I have seen anyone say the Tesla is sports car suitable for the track. Everyone knows it isn't. But you just keep using the race track "Straw Man" argument over and over, while pretending this is what "everyone" is saying.

    It's a bullshit bad faith argument on your part.


    Like here you do it again, yet another person pointing out that it isn't a sports car, but now you interpret a performance package = Sports Car. A performance package means it is quicker, not that it's a sports car meant for the race track.

    You keep looking for any excuse to trot out your Straw Man argument.

  2. Yes but putting a Porsche engine into a VW bug just doesn't make sense. It serves no purpose because it's not practical. Tesla wants us to be amazed. But amazed at what? Of what use is quick acceleration if it has no real application.

    Lolwut? 90+% of normal everyday driving is going to include acceleration. You want to merge onto a freeway? Accelerate. Want to pass someone? Accelerate. Need to quickly get in the left lane after a light? Accelerate. Cornering speeds and most other "sporty" aspects have no real application outside of a track or if you want to put everyone else on the road in danger.

    wtf acceleration is about the most useful aspect of a powerful car. giant top speeds is what is irrelevant.
     
  5. Once you get below 5 seconds 0-60 there really isn't a point. To Quote:

     
  6. Yes because you would never need quick lane shifts, emergency maneuvers, or cornering, or sudden braking in the real world...completely logical. *face palm*

    Last I checked the Tesla is going to have more autonomous features than a Corvette. Quick lane shifts? If you are yanking the steering wheel that hard that you would spin out of control, then you need to learn how to drive. The situations where a Tesla will have trouble with cornering in an emergency situation is the ones where even a sports car isn't going to save you.

    Honestly I'm not sure wtf kind of driving you do, but it isn't how the rest of us drive.

    Yup, take fringe cases that won't happen to 99% of people and pretend they are the most important aspect of everyday driving.
     
  10. Like < 5 second acceleration on a SUV is in 99% of everyday driving right?
