I would think the real reason that the Tesla is slower on a road course is because in such an environment other abilities of the car beyond forward thrust are heavily tested. As Johan pointed out, it is a 2.2 ton car, though despite this, it does get around the track fairly quickly for a car of it's size. In fact I believe it's a bit faster around a short course than a Subaru BR-Z. Anyway I decided to just go with the new Model 3 and wait on the new CTR to use as an adjunct to it. Now I have to figure out where I'm going to put them since I only have room for one more car in my garage.Really, if you aren't intending to take this to a track frequently, what does it matter how fast either of them can go around the ring? You aren't driving it there. The reason the Tesla is slower is because the batteries reach a point where they get too hot, and the car limits performance to save the batteries. You likely won't hit that limit driving around city streets, and the acceleration of a P90D isn't even touchable by the CTR, which will be far more useful in a city. AWD makes the handling pretty great too, especially with the super low center of gravity it has.
The CTR is a great car, but if I wasn't ever intending to go to track days and I had the option of buying a P90D instead, I wouldn't think twice. And to the other poster who said you would have to plan out your charging location and times throughout the week if you used it for commuting...you charge at home, every night. You never need to stop in public to charge unless you drive farther than the almost 300 mile range, which I seriously doubt anyone does on a daily basis in a personal vehicle (and they have free superchargers for that, if you do take a trip).
One thing to consider is repair time and finding a licensed tesla shop.Reliability:
Honda reliability is legendary, but an electric motor has 1 moving part, and Tesla's has a million mile warranty.
Advantage: Model S
