Brief history, I've been following the Tesla for a long time. I've driven a Prius for about 6 years and it's getting about time to replace it. I do very well in the healthcare industry, and my other vehicle is a 2012 Cirrus turbo airplane with all factory options (so I get delays, etc. coincidently, I'm one of a handful of pilots alive today because of the built in parachute, google 450TX for that story). I do sorta want the X since my plane has gull wing doors but I'm not that vein. This isn't an anti emissions statement, I liked the Prius. It fit my personality. So does my Cirrus, and I fully believe the model S or X would too. I'm not in a huge hurry, really might consider the X but I'm not a huge fan of early adoption.
I drive 80-90 miles a day round trip. For longer trips we take the plane or mini van for the kids. I spend close to 2 hours in my vehicle daily so I like comfort. I like sporty handling and acceleration. I have a truck when I need to get dirty. The price difference in 90-120k is negligible, but I don't want to get things I won't use. I've never driven a Tesla, but am just north of Nashville and my planes service center is Marietta (50 minute trip via air). If anyone has an 85 performance around, I'd gladly trade flight time for some drive time. If you have never been up front in a performance aircraft, the view is amazing.
So, if your me, what do you buy option wise? What is worth it, what's not?
