2016 Tesla Model S 60

Yep, it looks like every other Tesla Model S out on the road today, but that's not a bad thing.

I love two-seater, RWD convertibles and own a 2004 Mazdaspeed Miata for pavement fun and a lifted 2001 Miata for pre-running. I race air-cooled Volkswagens in desert races like the Mint 400 and the Baja 1000. I have won the Rebelle Rally, seven-day navigational challenge, twice and I am the only driver to compete in an EV, the Rivian R1T.

The newest Tesla Model S sports a revised front fascia. Gone is the fake, stand-in grille.

The headlights also get a different treatment for 2016, but the rest of the sedan remains the same.

The 60-kWh Model S is the most affordable Tesla on the market today, starting at $66,000.

The smaller battery is good for 210 miles of range on a single charge.

No Ludicrous Mode on this Model S. It takes 5.5 seconds to go from 0 to 60 miles per hour. Not bad, but not anywhere near the sub-3-second times of the bigger batteried models.

The Model S 60 can be upgraded at any time to 75 kWh for 259 miles of range, and there is an all-wheel-drive version available with 218 electric driving miles.

Tesla's Supercharging technology can pump 205 miles of range into the Model S in about 45 minutes.

There are over 600 Supercharging stations throughout the country, so cross-country driving is possible.

A massive 17-inch touchscreen uses Google maps for navigation, as God intended.

The Model S is LTE-connected and the fees are paid by Tesla. Updates to the car are sent over this LTE connection, so owners are constantly getting the latest Tesla has to offer.

The center screen is large enough to accommodate navigation maps as well as audio controls and information.

Autopilot will not only follow the car in front of you, but will also do its best to keep the car between the lane markers. It's not perfect and still requires the driver to pay attention, as it's not meant to be fully autonomous.
