    Another vote for merge. They will end up being the same because any "Anti Tesla Gibberish" article in a major publication will end up in both. Please merge.

    Fair points. All anti-Tesla stuff is, in effect, an attack on the stock. I'll merge (or get it merged).

    After seeing your note, Robert, I went ahead and merged. FWIW I thought it was redundant also.

    I can't believe I just wasted a page and a half reading you morons arguing whether or not to merge threads. Does that classify as "pro-Tesla gibberish?"

    I'm seeing a bunch of articles over the internet stating the price of the Model S to be $90,000. Does anyone know where this comes from?

    Probably average selling price from the last quarterly report. I didn't go check,but I think it is somewhere around there.

    I know Model S is luxury car with EV as great selling point but again that makes following argument

    Okay I am new to tesla forum but not the car world. ModelS is great EV, but price is too high.

    I don't drive a lot & annually around 9,000 max. If calculate the average of 25 it will be 360 gallons x 4 = 1440 (even if I drop average to 20 it will be $1800 per annum for gas)

    Now if you look at the Model S price and gas expense, I am not sure what to make (considering I have 4 years-old ICE car)

    I want a next car as EV but cost of existing EV make little sense (Nissan, ford, Honda & GM has limited range EV). Hybrid like the prius makes a lot of sense with 150k mile's battery warranty & reasonably price with solid dependability.

    I am pretty sure people are buying Model S to feel the joy of driving great luxury car but saving on gas if you're comparing with many ICE car owners makes me wonder...

    Model S is comparable to high end luxury cars like A8 or porsche or BMW. If you are buying any of ICE car above $60k you should look at the ModelS (again 85 goes around 100k).

    People say that it is great EV and save you on gas for long run with ZERO maintenance. Again, I am lost and confuse that company stock goes up on 100k car (10/10 rating) with limited market cap and just for Q of profit.

    I know in future they will have gen 3 with 30k and super charger etc but still confuse...

    It sounds like you just answered your own question, but it varies from person to person. For me, I used to dream of owning a Mustang GT (~$40k). I had been following Tesla for years, all the while saving up for my Mustang, assuming the Model S was out of my price range. Then I saw a Tesla in person (beta model @ DC Store) last June, and it blew me away. I did the math, and the price difference vs the Mustang would be made up in 6-8yrs depending on the cost of gas. I got my Model S in January, and I've loved every minute of it. A friend of mine has a 2012 Mustang, and when I gave him a ride, he said the Model S is more fun! (plus I can carry 4 adults comfortably)

    P.S. Mine is an 85 and the sticker was only $83k ($71.5k after tax credits in IL). You must be looking at the Performance Model, or "P85" as it's commonly referred to.

    fastcars, the gas savings are a very small part of the purchasing equation. Much more important is the driving experience.

    Set aside the green sentiments and the desire to get the US off imported oil as soon as possible. Set all that aside and focus on the driving experience and the performance of the car.

    - One pedal driving
    - Unmatched acceleration
    - Ultra quiet - If you want the roar of a V-8 or V-10, then the Model S is not for you.
    - Unmatched tech - Screens that are actually usable! Features that are, and will continue to be, added and improved long after the sale.
    - A full tank every morning, just like your cell phone. - no more nasty gas nozzles and stations!
    - Unmatched cargo capacity for a four-door sedan

    If you want to save money, buy a used Ford Escort. If you can afford it, and want an unmatched driving experience, then buy a Model S.

    Is that worth having to wait 20 minutes to charge up at a SuperCharging station on the occasional, relatively rare, long distance drive?
