You need to go to the configurator and recalculate your numbers. The second motor adds $4000, not $14,600. A more powerful Model S 85D (dual motor, base model) is $85,070 and $77,570 after the federal tax credit.

The second motor is $4000 more for the 60 and 85, and $14,600 for the P85...

I cannot wait for automated driving cars.

1. I can get drunk and pass out in the back seat and still get to the parking lot safely, maybe not inside but the parking lot

2. I bet if everybody is driving automated cars I could just drive 130 mph and watch the cars part like I was moses parting the seas.

As car guy, I would rip out the electric motors and battery and add a 572 Chevy Big Block. Re-code and reflash the entire computer system, and add real gauges, instead of the Crapple like ipad. And add a Dynaudio sound system, with McIntosh amps.

still do not know if you could do the 0-60 in 3.2 seconds like this car can. you would also lose that linear power curve and also the weight balancing for corning. with the distribution of the motors in this car it must have a solid 50/50 weight ratio. the throttle response on this thing is 1 millisecond. I also don't think you could get the same 320 mile range that this car gets.

but I do like the McIntosh amps, go johnson city new york.

fkr-I was born and raised in Endicott, just a wee west of Johnson City. Don't get me wrong, 3.2 seconds is freaking insane. I just like the rumble and loudness of an engine running on dino juice. Old fashioned, yeah sort of. And I like to drive a car with 3 proper pedals and a stick. It makes you feel more connected to the machine, than the machine controlling you.

Do you ever go and visit the guys at McIntosh. great people and lots of great equipment to listen to. there is audio classics there and also their labs are in bingo

$120,000 USD?
For that kind of money, I would want solar panels on the roof and hood/bonnet; to re-charge it while out and about.
But it seems the electric companies are getting their weasily little fingers everywhere.

I would also want my concept for A-pillar Corning smartscreens built in so that the A-pillars become `invisible` to the driver; so we can see what is going on behind the blind spots at ALL times.

One of my hundreds of Tech inventions.
