2 weeks ago we received our Model S and I just thought I'd do an introduction. My name is Joe Pruskowski and I work with an online drivers ed company (http://igottadrive.com). I am very impressed with the so far and have written a short blog (http://igottadrive.com/blog/tesla-modern-electric-car) om my [albeit] short experience so far.
Coming from a drivers ed perspective, I do have a concern about the potential distraction associated with the screen on the console. I personally find it refreshing to have a "live" screen and am not advocating for a change. However, maybe there could be a "parent controls" or similar that would blank the screen while driving, etc. My fear is that a teen is going to get into the car, have a collision, and blame it on the car. Again, I don't personally buy this but distracted driving is such a big topic now and in our society everyone is always looking for blame.
I bought the car for my wife and I typically drive sports cars (Porsche, etc.). I have to say that I'm quite impressed with this car's handling and performance, especially considering its a 4 door sedan. And I love the electronic integration and "soft programming" of the various car features.
Well... enough for the intro and look forward to future discussion on our cars...
