The 10 most powerful cars you can buy in Australia

Power and excitement go hand-in-hand. Henry Kissinger summed up the connection perfectly when he said: "Power is the ultimate aphrodisiac". Though Kissinger wasn't talking about kilowatts, when you take a look at the 10 most powerful production cars on sale in Australia, there's no arguing each has sex appeal...

Tesla Model S road trip – Sydney to Melbourne

The Tesla Supercharger network is designed to give owners a free charging option while they’re on their way from one place to another. And with a full charge on board, the Model S is capable of more than 500km of electric driving.

2016 Tesla Model S P90D v BMW 730d Comparison

These are two cars that barely need an introduction. One is a long-time luxury vehicle from a respected German brand, while the other is a lightning-fast newcomer from an American brand with a focus on green credentials. We’re talking, of course, about the BMW 7 Series and the Tesla Model S...

Audi RS7 Sportback v Tesla Model S P85D : Comparison Review

Here we have two very different takes on technology and performance. The Audi RS7 Sportback is a high-tech luxury four-door coupe with a stonking big V8 engine, and the Tesla Model S P85D is about the same size and shape, but makes do with batteries and two electric motors for its propulsion. Why compare them? Simple – both are different answers to the same question...

Tesla Motors says it has now taken 373,000 deposits on the unreleased Model 3, though about 8000 customers have already cancelled their refundable orders, while a further 4200 were axed because they appeared to be speculator-driven duplicates. The latest order count was announced at the same time that the company announced the intended sale of $1...

Will the Tesla Model 3 ever actually launch?

Lining up for a product you don't know anything about or have never seen seems a bit strange, right? It's stranger still, when you consider it's a product that, locally, will be priced well in excess of $50,000. And when you can't be certain that the company you've left a deposit with can even get the manufacturing program in full swing..

Tesla Model S 75D confirmed, Australian orders open this week

2015 Tesla Model S 85 Review

My Model S was delivered at the end of May 2015. I'd confirmed my order New Year's day and seemed to have an inordinately long wait for delivery, it's unclear why it took nearly 6 months. This was the only part of what was the first pleasant car buying experience I've had, no car salesmen, only helpful staff...

2015 Tesla Model S 85 Review

I have been following this company since they unveil the roadster prototype. I have hoped and wished that they would come to Australia with a car within my means. Fast forward to 2015, my dream came true and I took delivery of my model S 85. Despite reading and knowing so much about the car. Ownership still provides constant pleasure and joy...

2015 Tesla Model S P85d Review

Just hit 18000kms in a P85D and I've owned this car since Oct 2015. It's flawless - no issues whatsoever and it feels the same as the day I picked it up (new). I drive to work at around 220kms per day. Bought it as my older previous car was costing $20k per year for fuel and servicing - whereas this comes with an 8 year unlimited km warranty, no fuel or servicing required...

2014 Tesla Model S 85 Review

I heard about Tesla in 2006 and you could tell even then that this was not your normal electric car company. I followed them closely and ordered my Model S in 2012 knowing how much of a disruption a car of like this would be. What I didn't expect was that even after 2 test drives I was still blown away by the car I received and mine is 'just' the 85...
