I wouldnít want a EV 86/BRZ It would be faster, but so much would be missing. Accelerating in a dual motor Tesla 3 is pretty amazing, but itís so.....numb? Granted I havenít been able to drive something like the new NSX.

Ya, and what about the lack of exhaust note? I reckon the aftermarket will supply some sort of electric, variable pitch, variable "speed", sound generating thing -

I was just talking to my coworker (Tesla owner) about this. They could add a fake tach and paddles. Then use speakers to emulate engine sound and animate the tach. They could even use the motors to produce a jolt to emulate the shift. Kind of lame but less lame than mute. I was watching that Porsche Taycan lap around the ring and itís so strange to see him throwing it around without sound.

Turbo S, such a stupid naming convention.

Like the Incredible Hulk. Don't let the "sports cars shouldn't weigh more than 2500lb" crowd hear you. Not sure what the model 3 battery weighs but the S battery back is 1200lbs.

Thatís the eerie thing about an EV or Hybrid. They are so quiet, and for me, they donít feel fun to drive. As a commuter car I could be ok with it, but not for a sports car.

Yeah true. I've been thinking about raising it up soon so I eliminate the risk of damaging anything. Thanks for the advice man I appreciate it

I wasnít sure what to expect, but I was pleasantly surprised! And no hassle of sanding and painting the OEM badges.
