Any wager on if Tesla will ever hit $35k on the Model 3? I suppose I'd even allow the price to be adjusted for inflation back to when he originally announced that price point. Maybe that would be $37k now.

Surprising to me to see the ILX at the bottom. Acura had a winner with the TSX back in the day. It was a test drive of the IS250 that turned me off of it. The automatic was garbage, acceleration weak, and leg room cramped. Very good looking car though (2006 model, not the ridiculous grill ones today).
