Joe Rogan On Tesla Model S: “The Most Preposterously Quick Vehicle I’ve Ever Driven”

February 5th, 2019 by  

Joe Rogan had his socks blown off by the Tesla Model S over the weekend when he took took the car out for a spin around the block.

For a car guy and someone who has interviewed Tesla CEO Elon Musk, it is a bit shocking that he had never driven a Tesla until now, but hey, better late than never. Rogan noted that driving the Tesla Model S was “one of the strangest experiences I’ve ever had behind the wheel of a car.” That may not sound like the best commentary on the car, but speaks to the transformative approach Tesla took to the vehicle, truly designing it from the ground up. Being an old-school car guy, the point Rogan is probably trying to express in a fun way is how much of a difference it is to drive a Tesla versus a gasoline car.

The center console is an LCD screen and the dash is fully digital. Stack on top of that the insane instant torque that the car puts down without making any sound and it can leave drivers with a sense of exhilaration that is clearly unparalleled. Rogan went on to state that it was, “Without a doubt the most preposterously quick vehicle I’ve ever driven.” As a bold highlight on that, he also stated, “It legitimately feels like something wrong is happening.”

Maybe it was so wrong that it was right? It’s hard to know what he meant other than to step back and laugh at how tussled Rogan’s hair clearly was from the test drive. Okay, so maybe not his hair, but you get the picture. It’s like the first time riding on a roller coaster — really scrambles your wires. Getting off and being interviewed about the experience, this is the kind of thing you’d say.

Rogan summed up the experience with a personal note to Elon: “Elon, you knocked it out of the park with this crazy thing.” That sounds positive.

Update: Adding in Rogan’s full video where he goes into far more detail about the Model S that he didn’t just test drive, but purchased, after his interview with Elon Musk.
