It's far more economical to buy a nice Camry or Accord V6 and still muster up 30+ mpg on the highway with plenty of power than to spend big bucks on an electric, but most people who buy really expensive high option vehicles are losing their butts on depreciation.. they do it because they have the money to spare.

I'd rather have a prius and be a cheapskate and have a 500 mile range on my vehicle before needing a refuel. Some people pay for those 2.3 seconds of fast acceleration though. More power to em.

Modern 4 cylinder engines are as powerful as some of the muscle cars from the early 80's... and today's V6's blow them away.
They do. State vehicle inspections check for removed pollution control equipment.

Lot of people buy tesla for lok and acceleration to feel good themselves. Younger guys do it just to impress others, okay, who has not been young? But older 40 or more buying on the look and accelaration? seemlike a midlife crisis
