Tesla has an 11 yr headstart, and is worth 15x that of Stellantis and 5x that of Dodge. Better chance of Dodge getting sold again than their first big attempt at a EV spanking whatever Tesla has in 2023/24.

Enjoy your golf cart. Quiet and fast is boring to me.

And Tesla still hasn't figured out how to run an assembly line, but boy Musk sure can dance and sing. Over valued and once the real manufacturers get cranked up Tesla's valuation will drop into the toilet.

iagree 100%. When I was a kid, the sound of a fast car was the main thing that attracted me to them. It's still my favorite thing about them today. Take that away and it's ruined. Doesn't matter how fast it is.

I thought this was going to be about the "band". Tesla is coming to the Iowa state fair in a week or so.

You're making the same mistake the domestics did with the imports in the 80's. We all know how that ended up.

First they ignore you, then they laugh at you, then they fight you, then you win.

A race is a race. What odd things have we raced in our lives? Never raced a go cart or three wheeler with your dirt bike as a youth? Which makes me think of the old three wheeler guys seeing the new quads. We dont need four wheels!

So when one is out in there old street muscle if the EV driver that just smoked you was going vroom vroom as he drove away from you would it lesson the sting?

How do you think all the greasers from the Flathead era felt about the muscle car movement...... That dam new junk.....

How about the gas powered car vs the flippin horse? Where the hell do I feed the hay in at?

Get with the times or get left behind as sad as it is.


STOP POTATO HATE!

But this isn't just fast, its insanely fast. Low-mid 9's as you drive it to the market - a nice rumbly car that loud most likely wouldn't be fun to drive around on the street. And (according to Motor Trend) "the Plaid launches so ferociously hard, it generates more than 1.00 g from 0.2 second to 2.6 seconds after launch, peaking at 1.227 g at 32 mph". Sounds fun to me smile

The Rimac does 8's but its multi-millions, I think 8 seconds at a more reasonable price aren't far off.


Ride eternal, shiny and chrome

What sting? There is always someone faster. It wouldn't sting to get beat by a $130,000 car that someone put their blood, sweat and tears into, why would there be sting in getting beat by a $130,000 car that someone has nothing in but a payment book? I feel the same way about people that are proud they were able to do what everyone else was doing and somehow feel special about it. If you are impressed by them, by all means be impressed. But there's no need to try to convince me why I should be impressed by something that doesn't fit my lifestyle in any way just because it is fast and expensive.

Tesla is just a bunch of layed off Chrysler engineers from 2008. Dodge by all means will show up with something better, something so insane you'll probably need to pass some course or have a special license to drive it. They said they're bringing an "all conquering" muscle car and I believe them.

We're going to start seeing with cars what we already see with fighter jets where the limiting factor isn't the craft, but the meatbag piloting the thing.

.....but will they be able to bring it to market in any significant quantity? People that like to throw shade on Tesla ignore the fact that now only have they been building out their production, but also their supply chain. They're smart enough not to be reliant on others for their batteries. Besides, Tesla's engineering is arguably on par if not superior to that of the rest of the auto makers. They laughed at them as a foolish oddity and now they're an actual competitor. The hubris in this is funny.

I dont know about motors but they'll be building their own batteries. They will have 2 or 3 plants dedicated to battery production and have a lot of money set for developing sold state batteries, with those you'll see 1000-2000+ mile ranges, no fires and faster charge times
