Tesla Model X P100D is the stuff of dreams

The falcon-wing doors sealed shut and the boy studied the moonroof above his seat. His eyes trailed forward to the panoramic front windshield. The 17-inch touch screen in the center stack arrested his attention, like headlights to a deer, causing the boy to mutter, as if in a trance, “This is how I imagine cars of the future.”

Then I floored it and the kid erupted in a fit of giggles as the all-electric performance SUV rocketed to 60 mph in 2.9 seconds.

The future is fast.

Since the all-wheel-drive, dual-motor P100D is all electric, it has no gears, so the acceleration is uninterrupted, prompting a gut-dropping response that took our breath away as swiftly as the $162,000 tag.
