    Wait for sport/performance option?

    For those wanting a Model S, are you needing the sport/performance option?

    I would love to get a sport model but if they don't offer it at launch, it probably won't be for another year before they get around to it. I really don't see why it can't be done at launch or included with the Signature Series (maybe as an option).

    I'm sure hoping the option is there at launch. That would be so awesome!

    If I could have the Roadster too, then the regular 300 mile sedan would be fine for me. But sans Roadster, I want some juice!

    Depends, depends, depends. Depends on how much, how fast, and what else is on the market. Right now, I am leasing the Roadster until I buy the Model S, but... I might just switch out the (2nd car) Lexus LS460 for the Model S, and keep the Roadster until they have a Model S "Sport." But all those decisions depend on what the marketplace looks like at the time I need to make the decision.

    You need a faster 0-60 than 5.6 seconds?
    I have never seen a sport option defined.
    What exactly is it that you want in a sport/performance option?

    From the poll so far, it looks like the majority is happy with 5.6 seconds. And frankly, if the test drive come February WOWs me, then I agree, the sport package may not be that important.

    Why not? A good a guess as any.

    0-60 in 4.4s was considered a target.
