The Tesla Model S P90D Ludicrous is the perfect car. Except for the interior. And the electronic glitches everyone says are inevitable. And the GPS that’s always lying. OK, maybe it isn’t perfect, but it exists in a different and better universe than everything else.
To what, then, does one compare it? It’s a $120,000+ electric sedan with the acceleration of a new Porsche 911 Turbo S, the range of a mercilessly flogged 1977 Mercedes 450 SEL 6.9, and the interior of a 1990 Lexus LS400 that’s been converted for taxi use. It’s a surreal package of supercar performance and price-point engineering for a luxury price point. It’s a work of genius that forcibly redefines how cars are classified.
