    RC:

    The Tesla X would sell much better if it looked differently...still looks like a Minivan, a no go for many people. Smiley

     

    It still sells in decent numbers, but probably better if they actually badged it correctly as a minivan instead of pretending to be a SUV without any of the SUV attributes.

    Leawood911:

    The Tesla hate is strong with Nick. I have never seen anything like it. Wow. Just a bit on the irrational side. 

     

    Actually I don't hate it. I am standing right smack down the middle of opinions. neither leaning towards a Tesla fanatic nor a Tesla hater.

    Leaning one side or another would cloud the judgement and not be objective.

    I see good side from Tesla and the bad.

    Bad is they try to put lipstick on a pig to sell their cars. For the price they charge, they are not up to industrial standard. The performance part is also overblown, yes they are fast from rest to speed limit, but it's not highly repeatable. The battery tech is also limiting the performance (but that can also be said of every other EV that will come, including the Taycan, the Taycan will just suffer as much in cold weather). Tesla also do not do corners well, the giant touch screen is a giant safety hazard.

    A fully loaded Model S is what, 145k? If Tesla sink another say 5k to make the interior better, 145k vs 150k, people shopping in that price range will not bat an eye for the extra 5k. It will be that much more competitive. The car can sell itself, it doesn't need Elon to lie and boast how great his car is, he just have to be honest and realistic. People can and will find out themselves. 

    Good for Tesla is that without them, the EV trend will not advance as quickly. They do push other manufacturers to get their shit together. And because Tesla are so great on doing amazing drag times, it gets Americans into them as straight line drags are what Americans called motorsport. Even soccer moms loves talking about how fast their Tesla is. Something I do not believe a Cayenne driving soccer mom would say. Tesla definitely expanded the car universe.

    Upsa:

    Why does everything lead to Tesla? This is a Bentley GT thread. So disappointing talking abut batteries in a thread meant to celebrate engineering & coachmanship. C'mon....

    I don't get that either... Smiley

    A couple of weeks ago, we were in a group of people, talking about cars and I mentioned that I'm getting a Lamborghini. One of the guys asked me why I'm not getting a Tesla S because it is faster off the line. I mean, c'mon, seriously? Smiley I tried to explain but he kind of didn't get the point, for him only the numbers and "future tech" (what ever crap he mumbled) counted. Smiley Some people just don't get sports cars anymore, this is a reality we need to face.

    Why are we talking about sports cars in a Bentley section? SmileySmiley


    Re: Bentley GT

    The Bentley will hopefully be exactly what I bought it for. A step up from the Panamera and a very nice DDkiss

    For sport car I will enjoy the GT2 and for the real thrill, a cup car. And if Nick ever come visit me here, I promise to buy a nice Tesla to drive him arround in

    And guys, there WILL be pictures.....wink

    Re: Bentley GT

    Love it but it will cost pretty penny. Probably $250k for a nice convertible GT Speed.


    Re: Bentley GT

    In Dubai the new models are selling for a huge premium, but I'm not sure if there are many buyers, I've only seen 2 or 3 so far

    Oh yes, the interior is superb. kiss

    Re: Bentley GT

    Thanks guyskiss

    So far, so good, but I’ll give you more pictures and a first comparison (to the Panamera)/drive review when I’m back in Stockholm and get a chance to finally take position of it.

    Based on pictures I’ve got it looks exactly as I hoped when I speced it. A bit to the low key/ conservative side, but still elegant. Think it will be a perfect DD and most people won’t even understand what it is.smiley


    Re: Bentley GT

    A perfect DD car. Congratulations.kiss

    I might just put an ultimatum to Manthey for running with them this summer. They have to bring you to every race weekend as my good luck charm. You are the only one I know that can actually talk so much and so fast than one can’t even hear the cup car starting up the engine five meters away.....

    Congratulations. Nice, judicious use of an interesting contrast stitching colour. You will not be disappointed - it's a great product.
