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...

2016 Tesla Model S P90D review

Full disclosure: I don't own this car. I wish I did, but short of selling my kidney on Gumtree it's just not going to happen. I did get to drive one, though, and it inspired me to pen my thoughts. Here they are. I’m hurtling down the highway of the future. A car with an internal combustion engine, a relic of the past, suddenly cuts in front of me...
