User opinions and reviews

Interesting that the Plaid got a $20k price drop. That is equivalent to a Yamaha R1, a super fast motorcycle (but probably not as quick in a straight line as this insane car). I feel bad for the people that bought this before the price cut.

One of my favourite! The best electric 🚗 of Tesla. Speedy, secure and Simple.
