Normally, when a new car launches, it takes a few weeks before owners start posting their own thoughts and ownership experiences online.
But although official deliveries of the 2012 Tesla Model S Sedan started less than a week ago, it hasn’t taken long for Model S owners to evangelize online about their new cars.
Take Model S recipient and venture capitalist Konstatin Othmer, who posted a video yesterday listing the 10 things he loves the best about his new $97,900 2012 Tesla Model S Signature Performance Sedan.
The resulting YouTube video, as you might expect, has the feel of a nicely put-together home movie, complete with footage of Othmer picking up his car from Tesla’s Fremont factory.
As for his top ten likes?
Aside from the usual things you’d expect, (like it being electric, super stylish and cheap to run) Othmer picks out some more unusual features he’s particularly fond of.

These include the Model S’ unique key -- which is shaped like the car itself -- and the unique automatically retracting door handles.
Of course, also in his list is the Model S Signature Performance’s acceleration, which Othmer revisits several times during the film at the expense of his friend, a little overacting, and a flying camera.
Given the limited time that Tesla has given Journalists behind the wheel of its highly-anticipated electric luxury sedan, we think Othmer’s video gives us at least some indication of just what the Tesla Model S feels like on the open road.
It has got us thinking however. What ten things do you like about the Model S?
