Tesla Model S P85D first drive: Luxury meets insane acceleration and handling

By 11 May 2015

Insane Mode. We knew the Tesla Model S P85D was going to be exciting after seeing the word Insane as an option, but we didn't know the half of it. We went up in a stunt plane recently and pulled 5G. The P85D was more exciting. Writing this with shaky... >>

Volkswagen e-Up! review: Up against it

By 23 April 2015
