yea but the Ghibli is the only one capable of shattering thier ear drums, lets see tesla do that with the electric car swooooooshAs far as quality, luxury, and style I think the Model S and the Ghibli compete with each other. I think the biggest difference is obviously that the Model S is electric. It gets 200 miles range which should be sufficient for most people. It does take a bit to charge so it wouldn't work for people like Joey who drive a long distance only to stay at the destination for a short time (and often your destination won't have a charging station.) Price is somewhat comparable as well. People will be turning their heads as you drive down the street with either car.
I kbnow you said you commute 40 mi daily, all well and good. but have you considered excess demands on your range beside the daily commute? God forbid an emmergency goes down and you're unable to reach a charging network or dont have time for a charge, then what?No expectations - I simply need to drive both cars to make an informed decision as to which car I prefer and want to buy.
I have given it some thought, and I think in most emergency situations I could take one of my other non-electric cars, but I guess its possible that an electric car could be a real problem if you are not close to home when the emergency situation occurs. I'm not sure that remote possibility would be enough to forego the Model S if (after driving the Ghibli) I decide that I prefer the Model S.I kbnow you said you commute 40 mi daily, all well and good. but have you considered excess demands on your range beside the daily commute?

how do you properly plan an unexpected emergency situation? Honestly if you're really looking for fuel economy just buy a motorcycle for commutes, doen't have to be anything sporty or flashy, just something comfy and good on gas...At the moment EV's do have a wall charger adapter so you're not SOL. If you properly plan out your commute and do the math and know your power usage limits, you will be fine. That's the downside with EV's, it takes more thought before you hit the road, just can't turn the key and go.
heh I don't think you can claim the Model S has fuel efficiency if it doesnt use fuel.Though the Ghibli and the the Model S are comparable because they are in the same price range and are both luxury sedans, they appeal to very different markets.
Many people are looking for fuel efficiency. The Model S offers this while the Ghibli does not. Others are looking for a more luxurious feel, this comes more from the Ghibli than the model S. The feeling of driving both vehicles is very different too.
The point is, both cars have their merits; it really depends on what each customer values most.
they compete if you're willing to spend your dollars on it, and some people are willing to. I just think Tesla is a green darling, why do you think their stock is so frothy. We live in a trendy society....I don't see how we can compare the Ghibli to the Tesla Model S, both very different cars targeted to two very different types of people. The Model S is almost in a market of it's own.
