    Hypothetical: You get one free car... what car do you choose?

    Hypothetical question:

    A genie tells you that he will give you one car for free that you're not allowed to give away or sell. It could be any car at all. An Enzo Ferrari, a Bugatti Veyron, a Ford Model T… anything. What car do you choose?

    Personally, I would choose the Tesla Model S. I actually think it’s better than everything else out there.

    What about you?

    The way the poll is worded, it makes it hard to vote. Specificatlly, it should say "a specific non-tesla model", and not "any other"
    Also, you didn't include Model X.

    Frankly, as much as I adore Model S and awiating mine with bated breath, I would ask the genie for a Veyron. 8 \

    I thought about including it, but the X doesn't exist yet (other than the prototype).

    I still think you should change the wording - it seems to say that you'd take 'any other car' over an S.

    Sorry, but if money is no object I'd choose something crazy like a Bugatti.

    I agree. However, it looks like I'm unable to reword the options. I'm sure people will understand.

    Answering exactly as you asked, I would go for a Porsche 918.

    If you added another constraint, that I had to keep it properly maintained and return it after 10 years - functional in average condition for a car of its vintage...

    Then I would go with the Model S, because the Porsche super car would be fun but I would not want to maintain or repair it.

    I'll also add, that even if someone magically gave me the Porsche 918, i would buy myself a Model S ( already did )

    Well that was actually addressed in the statements leading to the question. I was a little dismayed that the poll added the frustrating qualifier 'existing' on the list. I was going to go for a flying, time traveling, Mr. Fusion powered DeLorean, but alas.

    I think I would take a 911 not sure though, premium gas is expensive. No Bugatti for me. I haven't voted yet.
