Description

My thoughts on whether there will one day be a Tesla in my garage, while driving the Model Y Performance! Since buying my Porsche Taycan, there have been a lot of questions, especially with the Model S Plaid Plus soon to arrive. Join me then for my first drive in the Y to see what it's like.

The Tesla Model Y is available with very limited options; the Long Range or Performance Models, with 5 exterior colours, 2 interiors, and then adding self-driving, the 7 seat configuration, and/or a tow hook. This particular car at My Tesla Miami, a division of First Class Autosports, is the highest of those specs as a Performance with self-driving, plus given the limited options it also has numerous upgrades including the wrap, carbon fibre parts, new wheels and more.

With a start price of $50k, or $60k for the Performance model, somehow the Model Y offers 0-60mph in just 3.5 seconds - up there with supercars of just 10 years ago. However, the famed issues of Teslas certainly show through with poor panel alignment and quality issues that are instantly noticeable.
