During my 1,200+ mile road trip from Florida to Ohio last weekend I came to realize the interior of my car isn’t just black, it is dark. Very dark!

Assuming you haven’t been living under a rock, you’re probably aware that Tesla Motors recently unveiled their “car for the masses” recently. This is a big deal for many reasons, most of which I won’t bother to rehash here. As a current Tesla vehicle owner, however, I wanted to provide my friends, family, and followers with my quick thoughts on this car, why it may be relevant to you, and hopefully answer the most common questions I’ve been getting. Enjoy!
Today marks the release of the latest over-the-air software update from Tesla Motors. With the release of their 7.0 software comes a huge overhaul to the user interface, as well as a slew of autonomous driving capabilities. Here are some videos and a quick write-up about the experience.

My title may read a bit like David & Goliath, but don’t worry there is no religious story here. In fact, this article is less about a victor between these two strange opponents, and more about the pros/cons of each vehicle in real-world practicality.

Check out my full post to learn about how these two seemingly different cars have more in common than just their classification.
