"The Tesla Model S Plaid formally made its debut at the company's delivery event at the Fremont Factory today. The expectations for the Model S Plaid were high in the days leading up to its first deliveries, particularly as Tesla retired the Model S Plaid+ and raised the Model S Plaid's base price by $10,000.

" "Tonight we're going to show you the next BEST version of the Model S," Tesla Chief designer Franz von Holzhausen said at the beginning of the event.

"Elon Musk launched the Tesla Model S through the company's newly finished test track and triumphantly celebrated the Plaid's arrival on stage. In honor of the event and the new Model S Elon Musk wore a jacket with the plaid design at the back."

NOTES on the Best Car in the World

It's the quickest production vehicle ever, in both 0-60mph and 1/4-mile times. It goes 0-200mph in ONE SPEED. It sits five people super comfortably in luxury in a virtual home theater. It is the vehicle in which you have the best chance of any vehicle in the world of not being injured in a crash. It is super quiet at any speed. Its drag coefficient is the best ever of any production vehicle. You don't need gas or oil, you just need to plug it in. It is the first car you can say is in the 21st Century of technology.

I understand "journalists" allegedly have a duty to present balanced viewpoints. On the other hand, everyone on earth seems obligated to diss-down on SpaceX and especially Tesla. I will gleefully wear their pejorative, "Fanboy," for men who love thundering rockets, hot cars and beautiful women, as the greatest of accolades if this miserable, un-American tide of recidivist doom and slander is the alternative!
