This belongs to my wife, but I get to drive it so I might as well give you my impressions of the car.
2013 Tesla Model S 60.  It is the slowest car in the Tesla lineup and RWD.  Got it with 17,000 miles on it.  Still feels like a new car.  It can go ~180-200 miles on a full charge.  I have purchased a Nema 14-50 outlet for charging in the garage, but I haven't got around to installing it yet.  The car can charge using a 110V typical house plug, but only gets about 3mi/hour charging rate.  The previous owner paid for the $2,500 SuperCharger, so we can use those for free during the life of the car.  SuperCharger works at 150mi/hour charge rate.  
THIS CAR IS FAST!!
It gets to speed effortlessly.  It pulls from 50-90 in what feels like 2 seconds.  It will throw your head back and push you in the seat any time you abuse the vertical pedal on the right.  Never misses a shift.  No fluids to check/replace.  Just got to keep air in the tires and battery off 0.  You might think this is not a car you take across country, and I think you're right, but my wife drove it 1,200 miles from N.C . to OK. in 3 days.  The connective controls will guide you to the next known charging location via the navigator.
This is definitely a great car, and should be great for us in Tulsa.  I hear the charging stations in Cali are so full you need to valet them in with reservations.  We won't have that trouble where I live for the time being.  The car is not a luxury car, but a performance car.  It felt natural to line the girls up for a family photo. :D

I've driven my coworkers tesla's all different models and my friend p90d. They are fast as s***. The ones with ludicrous mode are just insane. 43k isnt bad at all all. I'd buy my wife one if P car didn't happen lol. I see people hate on them until they get to experience them!

The Model S is a rare car here in Tulsa.  Many people think there isn't enough charging infrastructure to have an electric car here, but they are wrong.  We love pulling into the local Supercharger to "fill it up" for FREE.  Wife really likes her S60 but wants more range, so I'm all about her getting the P90D or P100D for the All Wheel Drive and extra battery capacity......... :lol:

It's a Tesla specific charging station (I believe).  It can fill up the battery at a rate of 150miles-charge per hour.  Example: a standard 110V wall outlet only charges the battery at 4miles-charge per hour.  The original owner of each Tesla sold must pay $2,500 up front to use any Supercharger, but can then do so for free for the life of the vehicle.  Once the original owner pays the $2,500 the car is forever free to all future owners.  It's just how they are paying to expand the charging infrastructure.

Oh ok...So are most states equipped with these stations since you only have a 200 mile range?
