Can there be an everything car? Can it fulfill each and every need you have for the one car you will own? Tesla hit a pretty high watermark with the Model S, it’s well put together, it’s fast, it’s full of wonderful technology.

Speak softly, carry a huge amount of torque.

It’s low and aggressive. A gaping, purposeful grille draws your eyes to the shark’s gill hood louvers, then along the flanks to the deep intakes on the rear fenders and to the integrated rear spoiler. The covered multi-unit headlights glare at you menacingly through iridescent lenses. Step inside and punch it. The space-age banshee wail emitted by the huge hand-wound electric motor will prick up the hair on the back of your neck. Put your hand on your neck later and you shouldn’t be surprised to find the seatback stitch pattern etched into your skin.
