      The Turbo S with launch control is as easy to launch as the Tesla and considerably quicker to 60 (mid 2's vs low 3's).

      The difference is there is nothing under the i8 hood that needs to be addressed by the customer. There's lots of stuff under the Ford GT clamshell that the customer is expected to access. If you're...
