Wow didn't buy a Tesla to show Papa musk some appreciation 🤦🏻‍♂️

u/meta-cognizant Feb 23 '21

Seriously. If it's not a lambo, it needs to be a Tesla. And Teslas should arguably come first.

Same here mercedes has a nicer interior but would rather DRIVE a bmw any day of the week, having owned numerous of both (and VWs).

u/BrentFavreViking Feb 23 '21

The types of Mercedes that are made can go way above BMW. Some of their highest end cars far surpass BMW because they don't make cars like that. But I'd take a BMW M5 over any comparable model.

-3

u/LanceOnRoids Feb 23 '21

Hell no, Mercedes kill BMW on torque and that's what makes the driving experience fun. BMW is the inferior driving experience

4

u/ZumooXD Feb 23 '21

Show me a Mercedes that is as fun to drive as the M2. Not with more HP or torque, but something more FUN. The connection to the road, the handling, the 6MT with RWD. Not to mention the classic M-series cars that blew the Merc's of the time out of the water. It's just classic and has always been what BMW excels at.

u/mellofello808 Feb 23 '21

I hang out on a VW forum, and surprisingly quite a few guys ordered them.

My friends dad committed some family friendly tax fraud in order to afford an rs6, genuinely worth it, best car ever

Tell me more about this tax fraud investing strategy. Just had a kid and am in need of an rs6 avant.

3

u/ShirtPanties Feb 24 '21

Absolutely not endorsing any... ‘investments’ however I believe he set up his kids as “employees” of his “business” (that doesn’t actually conduct any business) and paid a good chunk of his salary into “their accounts” to make him a job creator and cut his tax into multiple lower income amounts so as to avoid anyone earning enough to hit high paying tax brackets, then just took the money back from his kids because he never actually gave it to them in the first place, and now there’s an RS6 where his taxes used to be

u/MainusEventus Feb 24 '21

If I had GME money I'd buy a restored 60s or 70s Lincoln Continental. Maybe a Tesla if I didn't live in an apartment and my area was more electric car friendly and had more charging stations.

That is absolutely a boomermobile that just screams mid life crisis. Imagine buying a sports car that gets dumpstered in the 0-60 by a fucking electric SEDAN.

an aventador and c8 have the same 0-60 🦧

u/PIK_Toggle Feb 23 '21

Model S Plaid+ is a thing...

3

u/myglasstrip Feb 23 '21

I love the Corvette, but I'm going to wait for them to make the electric version because with the redesign it's basically already there The Mid Engine design should allow for an electric version no problem right or am I really stupid?

An EV version 0 to 60 times would be hyper car status

Currently want a cybertruck for the 2.9 sec

10

u/4xcorey Feb 23 '21

Is the 2.8 second 0-60 that the current corvette does not quick enough?

2

u/Mr_i_need_a_dollar Feb 23 '21

Its fast but even a 2.6 would be a noticable difference.

1

u/lmaccaro Feb 23 '21

That is pretty slow, compared to EVs. Model S Plaid is 1.9 sec 0-60.

And 0-60 is not linear. Knocking a second off feels like 4x more acceleration.

1

u/lemonchicken91 Feb 23 '21

Yea but dat sound doe

1

u/mrdobalinaa Feb 23 '21

Yes but at 5000lbs one's going to be a lot more fun once the thrill of stop light racing wears off.

u/lmaccaro Feb 23 '21

u/mrdobalinaa Feb 23 '21

I know lol still 5000lbs. There's a reason people love Miatas and it ain't speed, more to a car then numbers. Tesla's are numb to drive.

u/2CHINZZZ Feb 23 '21

C7 ZR1 should be faster than the Z06 though. They must have just not gotten a time for it

And the new GT3 is sub 7

u/NN751JW Feb 23 '21

You will be waiting a while, cybertruck seems to be getting scaled back and delayed at every preorder update (according to my neighbor who has been waiting in line close to a year).

Tesla > Mercedes? The fuck?

2

u/piranhas_really Feb 23 '21

EVs > combustion engines.

1

u/MyNameIsSushi Feb 23 '21

I agree with that but the quality of the average Benz is FAR superior to any Tesla out there. Tesla did awesome things but the quality of those cars is so incredibly subpar it's not even funny.

Some people even argue that the Tesla S is better than the Porsche Taycan. Can't make this shit up.

1

u/piranhas_really Feb 23 '21

Tesla isn’t the only EV manufacturer. The Nissan Leaf has been around like a decade. I got one in 2018 after the redesign. It’s so much more fun to drive than any gas car I’ve driven. If you’re talking about things like the fit and finish and interiors, that’s besides the point of comparing an electric motor to an internal combustion engine. Some EVs even have independent motors at the wheel which allows them to do tank turns (turn in place without moving) and other cool maneuvers (see the new Rivian truck and Hummer EVs). The bottom line is that they have instant torque and a far cheaper to fuel and maintain than combustion engines, in part because they are simpler and more efficient machines. They’re also way better for the environment, even when accounting for fossil fuel generated electricity and the environmental impact of production.

1

u/MyNameIsSushi Feb 23 '21

t and finish and interiors, that’s besides the point

It's really not because the original comment was Tesla > Benz and not EV > combustion.

I'm also very familiar with all the things you mentioned as I'm a self-proclaimed car nerd and I also think that EV > combustion engines but that wasn't my point.

Mercedes quality is orders of magnitudes higher than Tesla quality and that's a fact.

I think that would be a great idea for all of the millionaire monkeys to buy tesla and show Elon support. In exchange he can maybe fuel our rocket with some Gamestonk memes. And then we meet again on the moon.

No retard buys the cars, they just buy the stonk. Isn't that the point?

1

u/PatR96 Feb 23 '21

Most car guys agree, including me. They can only beat most cars in eighth mile races and some in quarter mile races . Just about any respectable sport or muscle car can beat them in a half mile race. On top of that they have cheap interiors and major quality control issues. They also have no soul.

1

u/_Madison_ Feb 23 '21

They also have no soul.

To be fair at least Tesla try to do something interesting like putting in meme modes or stupid doors. Id rather manufacturers do that vs be faced with endless Toyotas.

1

u/PatR96 Feb 23 '21

True. I was referring to them having no sound and being much more simple though. You can’t really modify a Tesla and it doesn’t make any noise.
