Is there a Tesla in My Future? Model Y Performance Road Test

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.
Thanks to My Tesla Miami and First Class Autosports:
Thanks for watching, Tim

    • @Bye bye inferior trumpcucks , not a cult boy , I just don't like liars like you. Tesla is a brand new company and as such it will have something called GROWING PAINS. Other companies have been in business for decades and they all had their share of problems when they started.

  • doesn't having to look at a touch screen for every little change, take away from focusing on the road? Why is texting while driving not allowed, but focusing on a screen to work through menus while doing 60mph is perfectly ok? And focusing on the bottom of the screen, which is worst scenario of all considering the road view is over the screen. Not only does the touch screen force you to divert your eyes from the road, the placement of buttons on that screen prolongs the amount of time your attention will stay diverted.

  • Tesla model S Plaid imo is the one to get 520mile range 200mph (claimed) and the best thing and by far the better than your Porsche is the Tesla charging network. Watching your video of the problems you had charging your Porsche and that 200 mile range for the price is utter crap. Yes the Porsche is miles better built car BUT imo Tesla will improve in building its EV's and over time you own Tesla with the updates over wifi bet you the Plaid 520mile range will get higher.

  • The Acceleration is fantastic. But it feels like a one Trick Pony to me. If a car is this fast it had to be better in the corners. Same by the Model S Plaid at the Nürburgring. For a over 1000hp car, it is slow. 7.30 is slow. I hope the Roadster is better.

  • Lovely car which will suit some people. I believe Petrol Ped (Motoring ROworldr) is planning a Tesla Y but it's not for me, it's not what I call a drivers car. I like to have to drive my car, I actually don't like alerts when the car decides I'm close to something and things which force you stay in your lane when you're trying an overtake or to pull off a road onto a slip road. I feel safer driving myself and I've never had a crash in 30 years driving.

  • Very good reviews as aways time, however I feel that the quality has taken a step backwards, in regards to new method of recording. It looked more professional with your multiple camera setup, okay it may take a little longer to set up than just giving your GF a camera to hold, but the result speak for themselves. Not taking anything away from püppi150 as she does an amazing job, it's just lacking the polished product of old. "A long time fan from the gaming days"

It just shows the ignorant and infantile way people are these days. Common sense isn’t very common these days and honestly people are lazy enough that autonomous driving is not cool. On top of the fact that you can’t hear the beautiful sound of a motor. The only cool thing they have is the performance but, I’m a petrol head and hate EV’s and their ridiculous vanity plates. I don’t like Elon Musk as well so he’ll never get my money.
