The Tesla Model S and Model X.

Look, I get it. They’re a marvel of modern engineering. They have absurd acceleration and performance. They’re going to save the planet, drive themselves, etc. etc.

Here’s the reality I see: A solid 75% of Tesla owners I know (3 out of the 4 I know) basically think that Elon Musk is the reincarnation of Jesus himself and that the man can do no wrong. They then proceed to drive their performance cars at 55 in the right hand lane because they are worried about their range. In this regard, I believe they are worse than Prius drivers.

I really really *want* to like Tesla. I love the idea of all that performance. But when it comes down to it, the car really isn’t a good value, the build quality isn’t up to par, and I can’t stand most of the people that own them.
