Many of us are pushing our budgets to get a Model S so, it only makes sense that we would want to keep it for a loooong time to recoup the upfront cost in gas savings, etc. Assuming that Tesla or some third-party will make battery replacements / refurbishment options available as needed over the years, how long would you keep the car?
In theory, I want to keep the car 'forever' (atleast as a second car) but, practically speaking, I'm committing to atleast 15 years! I'll be 50 then and will surely have some midlife crisis that'll make me want to buy Model Z or whatever
