This article is a couple of years old and many of you might have read it already but I think it's an amusing read. You can even pick up the author's sneaking admiration of the T through his otherwise "horrified" narrative.

During one of my test runs before I registered my Model T last summer, I visited a friend in a neighboring place.

And - what a surprise - a Telsa S parked in front of his property. Tesla cars are very rare in Germany and this was the second time I have seen one on the road.

No question, it is a very fascinating car.

For an interesting comparison of the two cars, take a look at last year's Car and Driver. The Model T drove further.

I think comparing the Model T to a car that is nothing more than an overpriced curiosity - the Tesla S - is selling the Model T short. The Tesla S will never have anything comparable to the success of the Model T Ford.

Heard a 110 years ago: "Ain't no cantankerous, stinking, rattling, noisy, road hogging, oil dripping, palooten, machine ever going to replace a good dependable horse."

Good thing that Tesla S didn't have a center pedal. Considering what he thought it was for on the T.
