Esteemed Wall Street Journal car-reviewer Dan Neil is in love with Tesla’s Model S.He has written one of the most glowing reviews of a product we’ve ever read.

For example:

  • “This is one amazing car. I mean, hard-core amazing.”
  • “…the Tesla corners like it’s tethered with magic.”
  • “And here we now are, looking at the Model S, which, if everything works as advertised—something I couldn’t discern in an hour-plus test drive in Los Angeles last week—would rank among the world’s best cars.”
  • “Out on the street, suspended with the speed-adaptive air suspension, the Model S has an utterly unshakable, gantry-like vibe to it, even with the big meats in the wheel wells.”

And he concludes by saying:

“So, fittingly, it’s a spaceship. The Model S is the most impressive feat of American industrial engineering since, well, a couple of months ago, when Mr. Musk’s SpaceX successfully launched and recovered a spacecraft that rendezvoused with the international space station.

Don’t get me wrong. I’m prepared for disappointment. The thing could burst into flames or be found to cause cancer of the nether regions. But right now, I have to say, I’m fairly fond of it.”
